East Side Animal Hospital Kennel Technician, Getachew Bekele Adgeh, has been with East Side Animal Hospital since 1997, but has been in the animal care profession since 1980! How’s that for tenure?! He also holds veterinary-related degrees from schools outside of the U.S.

Asked what makes him uniquely adept at his work, Mr. Adgeh says, “My caring and kindness for all animals. All my life experience is with animals and I have studied agricultural science and veterinary medicine. I am trained to work only in this field.”

Getachaw’s hobbies include photography, traveling and visiting friends and family.
