Our Doctors

Dr. Lena Harris

Introducing Dr. Lena Harris, a beacon of compassion and expertise at our animal hospital. Hailing from the picturesque town of Albertville, AL, Dr. Harris embarked on her veterinary journey at Auburn University, earning her esteemed degree. Since 2014, she has been a stalwart caregiver for our cherished clientele and their beloved pets.
Intriguingly, before joining 2nd Avenue Animal Hospital, Dr. Harris donned the hat of a phlebotomist, a testament to her diverse and enriching professional journey. A day in her life is a medley of surgeries, examinations, and unwavering dedication to improving the lives of both pets and their owners.

She believes in the divine gift of pets, especially dogs, and endeavors to be the best caretaker for these beautiful creations. Beyond the hospital walls, her passion for the outdoors comes alive through jogging, yard work, and tending to her vast array of animals, each cherished in their unique way.

Her heart lies close to the earth and its creatures, showcased by her love for farm animal work. Assisting cows during calving holds a special place in her heart, a testament to her deep-rooted love for all living beings. Dr. Harris extends her compassion beyond borders, engaging in meaningful mission work on the Sioux Reservation in South Dakota.

Dr. Harris eloquently expresses her dedication: “God was very good to us to give us pets (especially dogs) and he has given us dominion over them. I should try my best to take care of these wonderful creatures he created.”

In the tapestry of our team, Dr. Leena Harris stands as a true gem. With her nurturing spirit and exceptional skills, she leaves an indelible mark on the lives of our clients and their furry companions. We invite you to experience the blessings of her care and witness the magic she weaves with pets.
