Dr. Caroline Li is a New Jersey native who migrated to the Bay Area in 2006 with her two cats and cocker spaniel. With a degree from Rutgers University in Natural Resource Management and Environmental Policy, she worked with the USDA as an animal health technician, reigniting her passion for veterinary medicine.
She attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts where she was adopted by her “coconut retriever” Daphne. Together they traveled to Oklahoma State University to complete her clinical rotation in 2011. Dr. Li has practiced in the Bay Area since completing her small animal rotating internship in 2013 and likes to “mix things up” by enjoying her time in general practice, emergency, surgery and high volume spay neuter.
She shares her home with her cat Owl and Daphne. Her interests include tennis, cycling, yoga and cross-country skiing.
To expedite the adoption process, please complete the cat or dog adoption form and bring a printed copy with you to the SF SPCA Adoption Center. This helps us better understand what sort of pet you’re looking for so we can guide you every step of the way! Please bring a valid photo ID and verification that you are allowed to have a pet where you currently live.
First, we’ll meet with you to find out more about you and your pet preferences and answer your questions. Our goal is to help you find the pet that best fits your lifestyle and living situation so we want to make sure you have a realistic understanding of the time and resources necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for your new pet. This can take time so please allow at least one hour for the adoption process.
Once we have a good understanding of your living situation and the type of pet you’re interested in, we’ll make introductions and let you spend some quality time getting to know each other to see if there’s a love connection. It’s important that all household members take part in this important decision so please make sure everyone is present (including any resident dogs if you’re considering adding a new pooch to your pack).
Once love happens, we’ll complete the paperwork, review all the SF SPCA adoption benefits, provide information on any known medical or behavioral issues, and share tips to make the transition a success for both you and your new pet.
We consider you and your new furry friend a part of the SF SPCA family so please reach out with questions ― and be sure to share your adoption stories and pet photos at sfspca.org/stories
Don’t forget to schedule your first free health exam at the SF SPCA Veterinary Hospital within three days of adopting.
