Barnstable Animal Hospital's Dedicated Team
Our team of veterinary professionals is dedicated to delivering the best customer service and compassionate care to you and your pets.
Melissa Lima – Hospital Manager
Ever since she was in the 3rd grade, Melissa knew that her passion was to work with animals. Her uncle was a huge influence growing up, since he was a biologist and would bring home all different kinds of animals for her to take care of. In 2013, Melissa became a volunteer for the MSPCA. Shortly thereafter she became a full time employee, where she learned a plethora of information on animal care and behavior. Two years later, her dream job became available at Barnstable Animal Hospital.
Melissa loves providing excellent quality care to animals, as well as exceptional customer service to our clients. There is a great satisfaction in knowing that an animal went home feeling better and knowing that the owner is happy as well. She also loves the time she gets to spend with each animal and making them feel comfortable and secure.
Shannon Carroll, CVT – Veterinary Technician
Shannon started her career in the veterinary field by volunteering at a local animal hospital in high school. Then she volunteered at a Humane Society, before completing the Vet Tech Programs at Vanier College and Penn Foster.
When she is not at work, Shannon enjoys water sports, arts and crafts, sewing, long walks in the woods with her dogs, and reading. She has an American bulldog named Lilly, a Maltese named TKO, and a Siamese cat named Rafiki.
Merry Pells – Veterinary Technician
At a very young age, Merry had all types of pets including guinea pigs, ducks, chickens, geese, dogs, cats and a horse. She loves all animals, big and small, and taking care of them just comes naturally to her. In high school, Merry worked at the MSPCA and then she went on to work at veterinary hospitals. She has been at Barnstable Animal Hospital for over 20 years!
Merry has a Papillion mix named Zena, two domestic long haired cats named Misty and Blackie, and a domestic short haired cat named Caper. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, going to the beach, landscaping, and being around horses at her friend's farm in New Hampshire.
