Maureen Herde
Nurse
Maureen has been with Animal General since 2012 but has been in the field since 1999. Originally studying to become a veterinarian, Maureen decided that nursing was more her calling and is currently finishing her studies to be licensed through the Penn-Foster program. Maureen has worked for private practice,the ASPCA, and North Shore before becoming a night nurse here at Animal General. Her dedication and commitment is unparalleled and before long, we knew her skills were best put to use on the day shift. Known among the staff as the 'kitty whisperer' even the most frightened cat is easily soothed by Maureen's gentle nature. Maureen life's work is to provide care and comfort to cats with special needs and is very active in our adoption program. In her opinion, every cat deserves a fighting chance, and she tirelessly devotes herself to the cause.
Background

Maureen worked for a private practice, then the ASPCA, and then North Shore before becoming a night nurse here at Animal General. She originally came to AG with a sick cat, and because of her work ethic and love for animals, one of our doctor’s asked if she would like the opportunity to work for us. She took the job and worked nights for the last 3 years. Just this year we were able to convince her to join the morning crew, and now she works as a full time nurse. We couldn’t have asked for a more compassionate nurse or person! Maureen shows no fear with any animal, and has a soothing nature that calms even the crankiest of patients. Maureen currently lives in Queens, with an array of “Lemon” cats. She has kittens/cats that are rescues from kill shelters and provides them with the TLC they need in order to have a chance at a normal life. Several of her babies have been adopted! From pet-sitting, to stopping by client’s houses for nail trims, fluids, or to help medicate, needless to say Maureen’s free time is limited. If she can ever find any spare time for herself, Maureen can be found painting or drawing.
