  • Dr. Jeff Jorgensen


    Doctor Jorgensen serves as the veterinary director of the regional animal shelter (10 years running). Through the local governing entities he has been able to provide veterinary care for multiple homeless animals in San Marcos and Hays County.

    Doctor J and his wife Terri are avid scuba divers and frequently travel to a variety of Caribbean dive sites. Hobbies include adventure motorcycle riding, scuba and racquetball. His two daughters both attended San Marcos High School and graduated from Texas State. Presently there are three grand kids spread throughout the world. Thank goodness for Skype!
    Doctor Jorgensen is also very active in Christian veterinary missions in Honduras. Having grown up in Venezuela, he always wondered how he could merge what he felt were the God given gifts he had-veterinary skills and fluent in Spanish. He is able to use those gifts on his annual Honduras trip. His wife Terry and he team up with a group of veterinarians that spread the gospel and provide public health and animal health services to impoverished communities in the coffee mountains. In the course of one week each year the team vaccinates over 6,000 animals.

    Doctor Medina has been fortunate enough to travel to Honduras twice for Veterinary Mission trips to assist in vaccinating animals for preventable diseases and hopes to do more community projects locally.
    Doctor Medina’s hobbies include hiking, reading, board games, and binge watching tv with her husband John.
    Doctor Medina has two cats, Atticus and Marcel that run the household. She has a love of feline medicine and has even trained her cats to sit and high five.

    Hi! My name is Ariel. I am a graduate of Texas State University with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. I am a mom to two precious cats named Blair and Kiki and to two hairless rats named Dorota and Cotton Candy. I have been working with Dr. Jorgensen for about 8 years and with Dr. Medina about 3 years as a vet tech, receptionist and now manager. This has been the best second family a girl could ask for. Words I feel describe me perfectly are, “she who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten”.

    My name is Haylee and I’ve been a technician since 2016! I have two dogs and  a cat. One of my dogs is disabled, so I have a soft spot for disabled and sick fur babies. Animals are my whole life and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
