Well Pet Clinic Doctors

Tami Carter, DVM, Well Pet Clinic Veterinarian

Dr. Carter grew up in Illinois and moved to Colorado in 1989 to attend Colorado State University.  She received her B.S. in Animal Science and then her DVM from CSU in 1997. 

She practiced small animal medicine in Denver until she moved north and was at Berthoud Animal Hospital for 13 years. Her search to lead a more rewarding and fulfilling experience in helping animals brought her to Longmont Humane Society’s Well Pet Clinic. Dr. Carter’s passion is “working with animals to improve their health while making them feel comfortable, cared for and loved.”

Amber Zagrodzki, DVM, Well Pet Clinic Veterinarian

Dr. Zagrodzki grew up in Indiana, where her love of animals led to working for her hometown veterinarian starting at the age of 13. She graduated with honors from Purdue University’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation, she moved to Colorado for an internship at Colorado State University. Dr Zagrodzki and her husband decided to make Colorado their home, as they had completely fallen for the beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities that abound here. She spent her first years in private practice working with horses, and she began volunteering some of her time with the Longmont Humane Society. She jumped at the opportunity to join the Well Pet Clinic team, where she feels she can make a difference by helping people keep their pets healthy and in their homes through affordable veterinary care.

Shari DePauw, DVM, Well Pet Clinic and Shelter Veterinarian

Originating from upstate New York, Dr. Shari DePauw attended Cornell University for her undergraduate and veterinary degree, which she completed in 2003.

After performing an internship in Atlanta, she moved to NYC where she treated the pets of the rich and famous. She then volunteered at a spay/neuter clinic in India, where she developed a passion for shelter medicine and serving the under-served.

When she returned to the United States, she worked at a humane society in Washington D.C. before the mountains drew her to Colorado. After serving as the Medical Director of the Well Pet Clinic of LHS for 8 years, she moved to the Western Slope to help build a veterinary hospital for the humane society in Ridgway, CO. Boulder County has remained her true home, however, and she has now returned to become the Shelter Veterinarian for LHS.

Dr. DePauw loves being able to provide care for those animals who otherwise may not get it, and during her free time, she enjoys exploring the mountains on foot, bicycle, skis, or with rope and harness.
