After receiving his undergraduate degree from The State University of New York at Albany, Dr. Matthew Toscano worked for several years as a veterinary assistant and technician. His first job as a kennel worker at a shelter in upstate New York is where he realized his passion for shelter medicine. While working in different animal hospitals he continued to volunteer for many shelters and animal welfare groups. He attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed his clinical year at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. While at Ross University he became President of the Association of Shelter Veterinarians student group and headed the animal rescue group on the island.
Matthew lives in San Francisco with his wife, two adopted dogs and a rescued parakeet. He has a love of shelter medicine and a desire to provide the best care possible to the animals of the SF SPCA and the community at large.
