Dr. Teresa Wills, Veterinarian/Owner

Dr. Wills knew she wanted to become a veterinarian after looking up to her father, who bred beagles. Years later, she pursued her dream and established Wills Animal Hospital with her husband, Dr. Steve Wills. She earned her DVM from Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Texas A&M University. To stay up-to-date with the latest in veterinary medicine, she attends numerous continued education conferences annually.

She enjoys getting to know her clients and their pets and welcoming new experiences and challenges that every day brings.

When she’s not caring for pets at Wills Animal Hospital, Dr. Teresa Wills cares for her own fur babies, including Nettie, her constant companion Yorkshire Terrier and Nettie’s best friend, a house cat named Fluffy. She also enjoys spending time with her husband and children, Matthew and Emily; attending music festivals; snow skiing; hiking and directing at Theatre Workshop of Owensboro.

Dr. Cindy Wolfe, Veterinarian/Owner

Dr. Wolfe’s love of animals and their care began at an early age, which is what led her to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. In 1994, she joined Drs. Steve and Teresa Wills and became a partner of the hospital in 2001. She earned her DVM from Auburn University and has since attended numerous continuing education meetings.

One of her favorite aspects of being a veterinarian is caring for her patients, diagnosing and treating illnesses, and interacting with her clients. She especially loves working with puppies and dealing with the challenging cases involved. Over the years, she has welcomed the opportunities she’s had to make a difference in the lives of pets by improving their quality of life, giving them more quality years with their owners.

Dr. Wolfe shares her home with her husband, Buck; and their children, Katie, Kara, and Haley. She’s also the proud pet mom of four cats, Timmy, Moonlight, Kindle, and Tiger; dogs, Willy, Jill, Milton, and Foxy; horses, Grubb, Cracker Jack, and Baxter; and two Betas. When she’s not at Wills, she enjoys spending time with her children, doing yard work, reading, and watching old TV shows.

Dr. Whitney Bruce,  Veterinarian/Owner

Dr. Bruce joined the Wills Animal Hospital team in 2014 with a DVM from Auburn University. She enjoys building relationships with her patients, and working with her clients to keep their furry family members as healthy and happy as possible. 

When she’s not working with pets at Wills, she spends her free time with family and friends, attending concerts, camping, and watching Auburn football. She shares her home with her husband, Bryon, their daughter Rosie, and their pets, Sophie, a Terrier Mix; and cats, K-Kat, and Spooky.

Dr. Katie Williams, Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Katie Williams joined the staff of Wills Animal Hospital as an Associate Veterinarian at the end of May 2016. She is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and a member of the AVMA and the CVM. Her desire to help people and animals led her to do Veterinary mission work in Costa Rica and seeing the Costa Rican rain forest was an amazing experience. She shares her life with her dog, Maggie, who is a beagle mix and in her spare time she enjoys reading for both work and leisure, being outdoors and spending time with family and friends. She enjoys the friendly, hard-working staff here at Wills Animal Hospital and the excellent mentoring she receives from the staff doctors. Getting to know her clients and their pets and making a positive difference in their lives is her favorite part of being a veterinarian.

Dr. Cassie Garvin, Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Cassie Garvin is a 2018 graduate from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts and completed her clinical year at the University of Illinois School of Veterinary Medicine.  She grew up in Lewisport, Kentucky and went to undergraduate school at Murray State University, and was excited to return back to Kentucky to work and get involved with the community. She loves exotic animals like birds, reptiles and small mammals as well as cats and dogs! She currently has one dog who she loves to take camping and hiking in her free time.
