DR. TANYA SCHULTE
VETERINARIAN & MEDICAL DIRECTOR

Dr. Schulte graduated from University of Minnesota- College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010 with a mixed animal emphasis. In the past she's worked on the majority of both farm, companion, and exotic animals, but now focuses on dogs and cats within the SHH rescue setting. While she enjoys many facets of the veterinary field, she is most passionate about surgery and dentistry. 

Dr. Schulte owns a 16 year old cat named Foster, a 16 year old Chinchilla named Chuck, a 14 year old Paso Fino horse named Alejandro, and a 14 year old Miniature Donkey named Emmitt. In her off time, Dr. Schulte enjoys horseback riding, camping, crafting, sewing, and spending time with her husband.

DR. ERIKA MUELLER
VETERINARIAN

Dr. Mueller joined the Secondhand Hounds Veterinary Team in August 2020.  She grew up in the Twin Cities and fulfilled her childhood dream and lifelong goal of becoming a veterinarian in 2007, graduating from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.  For 15 years she has been working in the twin cities area as a small animal veterinarian.

 

She has a passion for helping both animals and people in need, and was thrilled to join a rescue with a similar mission.  Away from the office, Dr. Mueller has a full household of furry children (2 dogs and 1 cat), along with her husband and 2 sons.  She can be found on most weeknights and weekends at the hockey rink and baseball field cheering on her boys.

DR. ERIN KUHN
VETERINARIAN

Dr. Erin Kuhn received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2009 from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduating with high honors, Dr. Erin Kuhn returned to the Twin Cities area where she started her career in shelter medicine. She has worked in the Twin Cities area providing services for the underserved population, in addition to spending two years at the University of Minnesota teaching primary care medicine to veterinary medical students. She has a strong passion for serving the underserved and providing high quality veterinary care to all animals. She is currently pursuing advanced training to become certified in canine rehabilitation to help better manage chronic pain in animals, to help animals age more gracefully and to help them recover from injuries faster. In her free time, Dr. Erin Kuhn enjoys spending time outdoors and chasing her two-legged children and four-legged furry ones around with her husband Pete.

DR. JAMIE DEAN
VETERINARIAN

Dr. Jamie Dean loved animals from a young age and was known to befriend neighborhood dogs and feed stray cats as a child. She graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2017 and could often be found bottle feeding orphaned neonatal kittens in between classes. She began her career at a small animal practice, but soon began working in shelter medicine as well.

 

She enjoys working with pet parents to help make their beloved pets' lives as happy and healthy as possible, but she also loves the reward of helping a sick homeless cat or dog get better and find their forever family. She is Fear Free Certified as both the physical and emotional well-being of pets during veterinary appointments is something she values highly.
