Dr. Chelsea Bohner

Dr. Chelsea Bohner is originally from Elgin, Illinois. She had a strong interest in animals and science from an early age and pursued that interest with a bachelor’s degree in biology from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. After college, Dr. Bohner completed two internships, one working with primates at the Atlanta Zoo and another rescuing sick and injured wildlife in coastal California. After working in a veterinary hospital as a technician from 2009 to 2013, she realized that veterinary medicine was her true passion and attended veterinary school at the University of Illinois. She graduated with honors in May 2018 and is proud to be joining the team at All Paws!

Chief Morale Officer
Thor came to us as a kitten. He was adopted out but returned to us as an adult. Thor loves when pets come in to see him and leave treats for him to clean up. He has a big personality, and yes, only one eye, but don’t let that fool you. He can see shadows out of his right eye and spot a treat from a mile away.
