  • Dr. Monique Goonraj
    Veterinarian

    Dr. Monique Goonraj graduated with honors from the UWI which is found in her native isle of Trinidad. From a very delicate age she found the passion to care for animals by fostering kittens and puppies on a regular basis, which stemmed from her mother’s love for animals. Over the many years Dr. Monique actively pursued a path that would lead her to fulfill her dreams of becoming a veterinarian.


    She loves spending time with her husband who is also a veterinarian and fur baby Charlotte. She is fond of the outdoors and enjoys gardening, hiking and fishing.

  • Kathryn
    Reception

    Kathryn joined West Niagara Animal Hospital as a receptionist in July of 2019.

    Kathryn took an unconventional route before getting into a field where she could work and help animals. From a young age Kathryn was petrified of all animals. She used to climb on top of her Dad's shoulders if she saw a dog or cat. This all changed when she was introduced to a 3lb puppy, who she held all day. Her parents knew they had to take this miracle puppy home. Brandy was a beloved member of the family for 19 years and completely changed the way Kathryn interacted with animals.

    From then on she was an avid animal advocate and snuggler. Who regularly stops for all animals and talks to cats for hours at parties.

    Her soulmate later came in the form of an anxious black & white cat named Jersey who was her partner in crime for many years and is sorely missed.

    She previously worked in the legal field & taxation but finds working with animals & their human parents much more fulfilling.

    She currently shares her home with her son (human), Bernard (dog), Lestat (cat), Leonardo (hamster), and Vaccuum (fish).

  • Tracy
