Founded by a veterinarian
Dr. Mariela Jessie Pazos was born in Uruguay and came to the United States at the age of eleven. She obtained her undergraduate degree at Kean University in New Jersey and went on to receive her veterinary degree from the University of Florida. Her early career was primarily focused on Emergency and Critical Care Medicine. During this time, Dr. Pazos also began volunteering with local animal shelters and rescue organizations. Although she always found Emergency Medicine to be extremely rewarding, Shelter Medicine and helping underserved communities and their pets became her focus. Through the foundation of LEASH, Dr. Pazos has continued to provide assistance and support to pets in need.
With the support of Nicolas Biase, Pamela Peacock and Ryan Keegan, LEASH was founded in 2012.
