Our Founder:

Dr. Joann Young – The Cat Doctor Emerita

In 2001, Dr. Young fulfilled her dream of building and operating a hospital exclusively for cats.  This, of course, is The Cat Doctor of Dover.  She owned and managed the practice until 2018, before selling the practice to her long-time colleague, Dr. Davis.  In March of 2019 she treated herself to a well-deserved retirement.  Although no longer a practitioner at our hospital, Dr. Young’s values and example continue to inspire the current team!
