Gerard Schafhautle

Kennel Attendant

Gerald has been a Kennel Attendant at Countryside Animal Hospital for four years now. Additionally, he has two years of BOCES Animal Science and several years of animal care volunteer experience behind him, including working with the Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown. A member of the National Technical Honor Society, Gerald is currently studying at Suffolk County Community College.  He enjoys marine aquarium and exotic animal care, but tends to love anything related to animals and their well-being. In his spare time, he likes to garden and write short stories and poetry.  Gerald has one furry family member; a black/brindle Cairn Terrier named Shadow, and in spirit, he has two more, Ashes (black Cairn, like Toto) and Calvin (wheaten color). He loves working at Countryside, knows most of the animals by name, and considers everyone here a family member!
