Wilsonville veterinary acupuncturist becomes Cat Adoption Team’s medical director

Wilsonville resident Melinda Barkley, former veterinary associate at Wilsonville’s Animal Care Clinic, has joined the Cat Adoption Team in Sherwood as the medical director of its in-shelter feline veterinary hospital and spay/neuter clinic.

Barkley, a certified veterinary acupuncturist, has spent the past 12 years in small-animal general practice in Clackamas, West Linn and Wilsonville and has volunteered for the Cat Adoption Team off and on for the past five years.

As a cat-loving veterinarian in a dog-centric area, Barkley loves that her name provides an instant conversation opener. “It brings a smile to pet owners’ faces,” she said.
