Keeping NYC’s Animals Safe

Inbal Lavotshkin (’11)
Inbal Lavotshkin works tirelessly for New York City’s animals. Her South Brooklyn clinic, where she serves as the medical director, is the only 24-hour hospital serving a large portion of Brooklyn. So “there’s no normal day” for Lavotshkin. “Our doors are always open,” she says. “We get patients from local shelters and the NYPD will bring us animals – strays that need shelter or dogs that have been involved in fights.” Lavotshkin’s dedication to New York City’s dogs and cats was recently recognized when she became the first veterinarian in the nation’s largest city to be honored by the ASPCA.
