Joanne Z. - Client Care Specialist
Client Care Specialist, Joanne, began her All Pets Clinic career as a receptionist in July, 2013. Today, it’s her strong work ethic and 39 years of experience working with animals that helps Joanne keep the clinic running smoothly—from scheduling appointments to checking clients and their pets in and out of the clinic, to taking prescription refill orders and making sure medical records are up to date.
As busy as she is, Joanne is always happy to answer any and all client questions, and enjoys the relationships she is able to form both with clients and the All Pets Clinic staff.
Joanne’s love and knowledge of animals knows no bounds. After 2 years as a dog groomer, she worked for 33 years at the Silver Springs Wildlife Park; first as a Zookeeper, then Supervisor and, for 9 years, as Wildlife Manager. She even took on the task of finding homes for 270 animals when the Wildlife Park closed in 2013. Joanne is a 32-year member of the International Primate Protection League, and when someone calls All Pets Clinic about an orphaned or injured native animal, it’s Joanne who steps up to help with referrals to the proper licensed rehabilitation facility.
"Being around the All Pets animals is what I like most about my work here," said Joanne, who especially enjoys seeing the exotic animals that come to the clinic.
Joanne’s own furry family consists of five indoor cats; clinic cat, Sophie, Buddy, Princess and Cuddles. Some fresh-water fish complete the family. When she’s not hard at work Joanne enjoys going to concerts and working in her yard. She hopes to one day write a book about her 33 years as a zookeeper.

She is always willing to provide a helping hand and be taught something new.
Mandi has been working in the animal related field since 2013 and has been an animal lover all her life. She knew at an early age that she wanted to work with animals and since has helped countless animals come to better health. Prior to coming to All Pets Clinic, Mandi volunteered and worked for Animis Foundation in their wildlife department. She has helped rehab many species of animals ranging from songbirds, Covids, squirrels, opossums, foxes, racoons, raptors, bats, and more! She has also worked with many domestic farm animals and exotic animals like parrots, ferrets, horses, and Fennec foxes.
Mandi likes to learn as much as she can so that she can bring the best care available to each pet. “I get to help animals stay healthy,” Mandi says. “I also get to meet really amazing people who own the animals we treat. It really feels like a community of passionate animal lovers.”
In her down time Mandi likes to go for hikes and be out in nature. She enjoys identifying various plants and vegetation and pointing out their usefulness. Mandi loves to practice crafting and being creative. She also takes charge of staying active by weightlifting and going to the gym.
