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.
