Dr. Cathy Pienkos


Dr. Cathy is a native of Hadley, Massachusetts. Her parents are from Palmer and Monson so she is very familiar with the local area and has extended family in Monson.

She graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1996 with a degree in Animal Science and graduated from Tufts Veterinary School in 2000. After graduation she worked in small animal practices in Western Massachusetts until 2007, at which time she moved to Oklahoma to pursue a career in shelter medicine.  She worked for 8 years for the City of Tulsa Animal Welfare Center and was also an adjunct professor in shelter medicine at Oklahoma State University. During this time she became a strong advocate for homeless pets and passionate about ending pet overpopulation.  

In 2016 she returned to western Massachusetts to be closer to family and became the owner of the Monson Animal Clinic at that time. She currently lives in Monson with her husband and two daughters. As a family of animal lovers, they share their home with a menagerie of former shelter animals who are now in their forever home.
