Years in Practice: 10
Education: Mercy College
In 2008, at the age of 49, I decided to go back to school and pursue my passion with animals, becoming a Licensed Veterinary Technician and graduated Mercy College in 2011. My husband Neal, and my kids Pamela and Brandon were my biggest supporters.
I love what I do. My goal is to always bring a positive attitude and a smiling face to every appointment so both my patient and client have a comforting and welcoming experience. I'm also a Fear Free Certified Professional, helping to create less Fear, Anxiety and Stress for our patients.
That is my objective each and every day.

Hi! My Name is Kevin Dolan, and I am a Veterinary Assistant at Pearl River Animal Hospital, and I am working towards becoming a licensed Veterinary Technician. I first started working here in 2009 while attending college. Although I left to work in laboratory research in 2013, I returned in 2018 and rediscovered my love for veterinary medicine. I work in this field because it is an intersection of two things I genuinely care about, animals and medicine! My father was raised in Pearl River and many of my extended family members still live here, so I have a deep love and connection to the town and area. I hope to continue to serve the members of this community with the compassion their pets deserve!
