Dr. Beth Keser Promoted to Director of Medical Services at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League
WEST PALM BEACH, FL- (October 19, 2017) Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is pleased to announce that Lead Veterinarian Dr. Beth Keser has been promoted to Director of Medical Services.
As Director of Medical Services, Dr. Beth Keser will be overseeing the Medical Services team of veterinarians and technicians who work together ensuring animals get the best and most up to date medical and surgical care possible. The team assesses the animals, provides vaccinations, performs spay and neuter surgeries as well as routine mass removals, amputations and dental surgeries.
Dr. Keser oversees all of the medical care and needs for Peggy Adams’ foster animals while they reside with their foster homes. Because she is an expert in HQVSN (Hi Quality Hi Volume Spay Neuter), Dr. Keser has been a catalyst in growing the League’s programs. Dr. Keser works closely with Peggy Adams’ TNVR (Trap Neuter Vaccine Release) program for community cats and also assists with Peggy’s Pantry, a program for financially strapped pet owners who need a little assistance. Her community outreach work at the shelter also includes End of Life Services for families and their beloved pets.
Dr. Keser, a Jupiter resident, wanted to be a veterinarian since she was five years old. She followed her dreams and received her DVM from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997. She began her career in Animal Health sales and has been practicing small animal medicine and surgery since 2001. While residing in New Jersey, she started working with the local shelter performing a large variety of surgeries and shelter medicine. Since 2011, Dr. Keser has called Palm Beach County her home and has been the Lead Veterinarian at Peggy Adams for nearly four years prior to her promotion. Dr. Keser has a 10 year old son Tora, 15 year old cat Burbon and 2 year old pug Tank. In her free time she enjoys kickboxing, coaching her son’s teams, participating in church activities and being a loyal fan to Tim Tebow.
“I thoroughly enjoy my work practicing quality medicine which helps save more lives and find forever homes for our animals,” stated Dr. Keser. “I look forward to expanding our medical services to include a comprehensive wellness clinic that will allow Peggy Adams to reach deeper into the community and serve those who may not otherwise receive care for their animal.” Dr. Keser also enjoys overseeing the League’s’ growing externship program for third and fourth year veterinary students.
Dr. Keser has received specialized HQVSN training at Emancipet in Austin, Texas and Humane Alliance in Ashville, North Carolina. She is a member of the AVMA, HSVMA, FVMA, and PBVS. She actively attends continuing education conferences nationwide in the areas of shelter medicine and surgery to ensure Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League remains on the forefront of animal care.
