Dr. Heather Carleton first moved to Jackson, Wyoming in 1989 to work at a guest ranch and soon fell in love with the area. In 2001, Dr. Carleton graduated from Colorado State University’s veterinary school; she then continued on with a medical and surgical internship in Bend, Oregon that was completed the following year. In 2008 and 2009, Dr. Carleton volunteered in Asia to help Soi Dog, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the street dogs of Thailand. In 2010, the Humane Society International sponsored Dr. Carleton to travel to Bhutan to assist with their countrywide spay/neuter effort – an effort in which over 50,000 surgeries were performed in a 3-year period. In 2009, Dr. Carleton started up the Spay/Neuter Wyoming program for low-income families in need of assistance. Heather is the proud parent of Mah Di, a three-legged Thai dog who traveled back from Thailand with her after her first visit there.
