Alaire Smith-Miller began at Animal Care Sanctuary in November 2010. She is from Canton and attended Penn State then Michigan State where she received her DVM degree in 1990.  After practicing in Vermont for 10 years she returned to the area to be closer to family. For the past several years she has worked at various local clinics until starting Minnequa  Veterinary Cottage-a low cost clinic for the public-nearly 2 years ago. She quickly outgrew the small space and was thrilled to be invited to continue to serve the community at Animal Care Sanctuary with much improved equipment, wonderful staff and plenty of room to grow.  She lives in Canton with her husband and daughter and a large menagerie of animals of all kinds.
