Angela Caldwell, DVM, MS

I am from Alpine, Utah. This rural mountain community allowed me to enjoy the outdoors with our many pet family members. I always knew I had a love of all animals thus my choice in a college major was directed to the study of animal life. I attended Brigham Young University for both my Bachelor’s degree in Zoology and Master’s degree in Teratology. I was then privileged to continue my education at Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and receive a doctorate. While there I focused on small animal study.

I am a member of Arizona Veterinary Medical Association the American Veterinary Medical Associations. My husband and I have lived in Arizona for over 16 years.

We have three children, two cats, two horses and a dog which sometimes makes our home feel like a full-time zoo. Together, with my husband Richard, we own and operate Arizona Healthy Pet Hospitals, which includes Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital. Arizona Healthy Pet Hospitals provide pet family-members in the East Valley the very best health care. We maintain the highest standards and are proud of the excellent animal / pet doctors and staff members that care for each and every pet as if it were their own.

Deneen Hawley, DVM

Dr. Deneen Hawley was born and raised in Nebraska where she attended the University of Nebraska and earned her bachelor’s degree in education. After teaching middle school science for 3 years, she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of being a veterinarian. She then attended Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she earned her doctorate. She went on to practice veterinary medicine in eastern Nebraska for four years before deciding to open her own veterinary hospital in Omaha. After eight more years she decided it was time to leave the cold Midwest winters behind, so she transferred the hospital to the capable hands of her veterinary associate and moved with her family to the valley of the sun. Dr. Hawley has special interests in feline medicine, internal medicine and geriatric pet diseases. She and her husband share their home with a large family of rescue cats. They enjoy spending their free time pursuing outdoor activities like hiking and gardening, and during football season they love to cheer for their beloved Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Camille Curtis, DVM

Dr. Curtis was born, raised and currently lives in the small agricultural communities of the Gila Valley in Southeastern Arizona. Her father was a small-town family medicine practitioner who spent time as a young boy farming cotton with horses and mules, and passed his love and knowledge of animals to his daughter. That background (along with a field trip in 2nd grade to the local vet clinic) coupled with a love of school, determined the career choice of Dr. Curtis: that of a veterinarian.

Dr. Curtis graduated from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine with her D.V.M. degree, then completed a large animal medicine internship for the University of Sydney in Australia, which was followed by additional training in pathology at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in New York State. After marrying her Air Force husband, Dr. Curtis moved around and practiced veterinary medicine in several different capacities in different clinics and different states until her husband retired from the military and they moved back home to the Gila Valley.

Dr. Curtis lives with her husband and 5 children on a small farm. They raise sheep, cattle, chicks, pigs and a small herd of rescue horses. She enjoys gardening, canning, cooking, and baking, and her kids participate in raising and showing livestock for 4-H.

Dr. Curtis has a passion for shelter and rescue pets, spay and neuter surgery, dentistry, general surgery, and for helping the animal community in general. She worked at Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital as a relief veterinarian in 2011-2012, and is happy to be back.

Sandra Snyder, DVM

Dr. Sandra Snyder grew up in Iowa and attended Iowa State University, earning a bachelors degree in Genetics and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. She completed externships at the Animal Medical Center in New York City, and an emergency clinic in Sarasota Florida. She also attended the University of Glasgow for a half semester in a student exchange program. Dr. Snyder practiced in Payson for 20 years before joining us at Augusta Ranch. Her strong areas of interest include Surgery, Dermatology, gastroenterology, and preventive medicine.

One day a week she dedicates her time to spay and neuter animals for the local shelter in Payson. She is USDA-APHIS accredited, a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, and serves on the Board of Directors to the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association.

She continues to live in Payson with her husband Randy, and two teenage children, Kat and Chris. They share their home with two cats, a Labrador mix and a maltipoo. Outside on the mini-farm you will find 4 happy hens, a Tennessee Walking horse and a giant Paint horse. She and her family enjoy the outdoors hiking, riding horses, dirt bikes and quads.

Kimberley Shaird, DVM

Dr. Shaird was born in France and was raised in Australia, Japan, and Virginia before moving to Tucson, AZ. She graduated from the University of Arizona in 2005 with a degree in Veterinary Science and received her DVM degree from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. Dr. Shaird worked at a small animal practice in Phoenix, AZ, for a couple of years before moving and practicing in New Jersey for four years. She is glad to be back home in Arizona and proud to be a member of the Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital team. Dr. Shaird enjoys traveling, exploring Arizona, reading, music, and loves spending time with her two cats, Muñeca and Kunoichi.
