Volunteering at Wild Arc for the last 3 years, she realized her passion was working with animals and that is what drew her to become a technician. Justine traveled with “Vet Nurses in the Wild” to South Africa for a month in the spring of 2013. While there, she worked with a local animal shelter and wild life veterinarian capturing wildlife and administering their care.
Justine also regularly volunteers with the organization 'our place', which offers veterinary care for low income families

Sara joined Eagle Rise Animal Hospital in October 2010 after spending the previous four years working at a neighbouring clinic. Sara completed the Veterinary Office Management program in Abbottsford BC, in 2006, graduating at the top of her class. While her primary job over the last few years has been as an exam room assistant, she has just recently taken on the position of Reception Team Leader
When she isn’t busy working, Sara likes to focus her time on one of her other passions, fitness and nutrition. On any given day she can usually be found in the gym lifting weights. Sara also loves exploring all the amazing trails and beaches our beautiful island has to offer!
Although she doesn’t have any pets of her own, Sara spends a good portion of her time caring for her little “nephew” Milo, a rambunctious terrier cross with plenty of personality!
