Dr. Rudy E. Zamora is a native of the east coast, having grown up in Maryland (go Terps!) in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. For as long as he can remember, he has always been in the company of animals. Besides cats and dogs at home, Dr. Zamora’s extended family in Mexico had a farm where he spent many childhood summers surrounded by chickens, sheep, and pigs. Following his undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland, Dr. Zamora was admitted to the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech where he earned a DVM degree with an emphasis on small animal medicine.
Dr. Zamora moved to New York in 2014 and has been enjoying his new life in New York City ever since. His professional interests include geriatric care, shelter medicine, and low-stress handling. While not at work, Dr. Zamora enjoys bicycling, international travel, and cooking plant-based foods. He and his partner, Gillian, live in Brooklyn with their rescue Boxer dog, Diego, and their cat, Jones.
