Meet Our New Chief Veterinarian, Dr. Maria Pyrdek

Meet our new Chief Veterinarian, Dr. Maria Pyrdek! Dr. P joined the Pasadena Humane team in 2019 as an associate veterinarian. Over the last few years with us, Dr. P. has provided above-and-beyond care for some of our community’s most at-risk companion and exotic animals while helping rehabilitate injured and sick wildlife. 

Dr. P is passionate about working to provide quality, evidence-based medical care to all animals. She loves collaborating with teams to come up with creative ways to solve problems and utilize resources. 

Prior to Pasadena Humane, Dr. P worked with Banfield Pet Hospital in Seal Beach, CA and as a wildlife rehabilitator with the Animal Rescue League of Pittsburgh, PA. She graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.  

We are more than excited to welcome Dr. P into her new role as Chief Veterinarian and know she will continue to provide the best care possible for all animals in need.
