  • Timothy Cavanagh, DVM, ABVP
    Chief of Staff
    I decided to become a veterinarian in the 8th grade. I was raised on a farm and I have always enjoyed working with animals. I enjoyed my science classes and learning how the cells and body worked. Being a veterinarian combined my interest in science and animals. “Today, I enjoy working with people and their pets, and I understand the close connections people have with their animal companions. I am very casual, and most of my clients call me Tim or Dr. Tim. Many have been with me for over 20 years. They trust me and know they will always be treated with kindness and respect. They know we will care for their pets as they do.” Board-Certified: American Board of Veterinary Practitioners DVM: Colorado State University, Ft.

  • Jackie Hulce, DVM,
    Medical Director
    I dreamed of becoming a veterinarian since I was a young girl and every day I know I chose the right profession for me. I like creating lasting relationships with the humans and the pets. I like knowing that I make a difference in their lives and being challenged emotionally,, intellectually and physically. I am calm, confident and quite down to earth, yet always determined to give the highest-quality medical care. I have built many lasting relationships with humans and their pets, and I hope to continue that throughout my career. The pets and the people seem to appreciate my patience and attentiveness. I hope to give them the best care at all phases of life.” DVM: Tufts University, North Grafton, MA BSc: Animal Sciences, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT Member: American Veterinary Medical Association, Washington State Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Feline Practitioners Volunteer: Meow Cat Rescue, Kirkland, WA In her spare time, Dr. Jackie enjoys hiking, exploring the Northwest and cooking.
  • Jan,
    Clinic Assistant/Bookkeeper
    I have worked with Tim Cavanagh, DVM, All Creatures Veterinary Practice, and our employees for the Arlington/greater Snohomish County for over 20 years. I have been gifted with great family, friends, clients, and co-workers. Over the years, my family has enjoyed horses (the magnificent Arabian breed), many dogs and cats. My favorite canine companion is the smiley Keeshond. I love the independent personality of my feline companions. No matter the situation, they remain unfazed. The friendships I have gained through All Creatures; both colleagues and clients, are irreplaceable. My passion, and compassion, for my animal friends has always been reinforced with the mantra of Tim Cavanagh and All Creatures Practice. Progressive and quality veterinary medicine for all of our patients and their owners. 'Passion and compassion come together at All Creatures.'
  • Mary,
    Clinic Assistant
    I have worked at All Creatures Veterinary Service for 18 years. I was a client before my employment at the clinic for 10 years. I can attest to the expert care given to a lifetime of pets by Dr. Tim Cavanagh and his associates. I feel a close kinship to our clients and the love they have for their pets. My own pet family includes Jolly, my Flat-Coated Retriever. He is Jolly by name, and Jolly by nature. He is my constant companion on long walks, working in the garden, and just lounging on the couch. He is joined, happily, by four cats. I have Yin & Yang, litter mates who were left as tiny kittens on our clinic doorstep; Boo, the stray who came and stayed; and the amazing Shere Kahn, king of his domain. He is now a 3-legged cat, doing very well and still one handsome orange cat. Working at All Creatures lets me share in the lives of our clients and their pets. I take pride in knowing we provide excellence in all areas of veterinary medicine, including compassion.
  • Kathy, LVT,
    Licensed Veterinary Technician
    I have worked at All Creatures Veterinary Service since January 1990. I received a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from the University of Illinois. I also completed the national exam to work as a licensed veterinary technician in 1994. I live in Arlington Washington with my family, four dogs, two cats, and three horses. I have worked at All Creatures for so long because I truly enjoy working with my coworkers, our clients and their pets. The atmosphere at All Creatures has a hometown family feel. I enjoy the diversity of my job; working on new cases and new patients as well as seeing our clients and pets that have been with us for years.
  • Brittany,
    Veterinary Assistant
    My love for animals started at very young age. All of my family could tell that I was very passionate about animals and that someday I would make a career out of it. Skagit Valley College is where I studied and worked for a veterinary assisting certificate and thus began my journey into the world of veterinary medicine. Working at All Creatures has only furthered my interest and excitement for animals. Whether furry, feathery, or scaly, large or little, I love learning and working with them all. I have one rambunctious German Short Hair Pointer mix named Nola and one very spunky tabby cat named Winston. In my free time I love going to Seattle to explore the city, hiking to new places, going to concerts, and watching bad reality TV. I love working here because everyone is family and you know that animals are going to get the best care that we can provide. All three veterinarians and staff bring nothing but excellence and care to their work making me very proud to say that I work at All Creatures.
  • Chelsea,
    Clinic Assistant
    I have lived in Arlington my entire life and I feel very blessed I get to work where I grew up. This city filled with kind and caring people who love their pets as much as I love mine. I also enjoy getting the chance to get to know our clients and their pets and build lasting relationships with them. Also being able to see the strong bond between them make it obvious to why I have wanted to work in the animal field since I was a little kid. I have 2 wonderful dogs, a west highland terrier and a Labrador, who bring so much joy to my life. And I also have a few cats who are constantly giving me their love and affection as well as entertaining me with their spunky personalities. So I am one very lucky pet owner to have animals like them. I love working for All Creatures and with the amazing staff here who make it easy to want to come to work! It is such a great feeling knowing you work for a company with clients who have been trusting our doctors for years and years with there pets!

  • Samantha
    Kennel Assistant

    I have worked with animals since I was very young. I started volunteering at Sarvey wildlife when I was 13 years old, when I was 17 I joined the team at All Creatures for 4 years before going off to college in Idaho where I obtained my bachelors in wildlife conservation and ecology. I currently run a bat rehabilitation center out of my home where I take in injured and orphaned bats, as well as the occasional squirrel, and rehabilitate them to be released back into the wild. I have three cats, and two dogs of my own, as well as three permanent educator bats, two bunnies, and crested geckos. I rejoined the team here at All Creatures in June of 2018 and am beyond happy to be back working with such a wonderful team. I am currently the kennel assistant here and I help out by cleaning and assisting with holding animals during procedures. I love the work here and the people that I work with.
