The exceptional staff at Safe Harbor is ready to welcome you to our clinic.

Rhonda Ritter, LVT - Practice Manager

    For as long as I can remember, I have loved animals and loved taking care of them. In 1996, I graduated Colorado Mountain College with a degree in Veterinary Technology and spent 13 years in Colorado gaining experience in large animal medicine, emergency and specialty medicine, and small animal private practice. I enjoy many aspects of veterinary medicine, but my special interests are  pain management, behavior, and anesthesia. In September 2006, I moved to Michigan to pursue new aspirations in veterinary management and teaching.  I have enjoyed working at Michigan Veterinary Specialists and teaching new veterinary technicians at Sanford Brown.

   Most recently, my journey found Safe Harbor Animal Hospital and I joined their amazing team and special pet community in June 2013. As a member of your community, I will continue to embrace new medical technology to help improve senior wellness. Through my passion and dedication I pledge to work hard to improve the human animal bond with good medicine and I will continue to give back through teaching. I also promise to commit to find good homes for our stray population. I am lucky to share my home with two feral but adorable ginger "twin" kitties Mork and Mindy, and an ornery Siamese mix named Fonzy. In my spare time, I enjoy spending times with friends, reading and I love all outdoor activities Michigan has to offer.
