Katie Sacco joined the team at Providence Animal Center in 2016 after getting a degree in Animal Center Management from Harcum College. She started cleaning cages, but quickly moved up and through the ranks before settling as a surgery assistant. Working closely with the shelter veterinarians sparked a love for shelter medicine. Katie fully committed herself to Providence’s mission, spending her time away from work fostering medically needy kittens, puppies, nursing moms and their babies. In 2021 she accepted a newly created position, Medical Care Manager. Through collaboration and advocacy Katie has reinforced partnerships with many rescues in the area, including ACCT Philly, to help save more lives. At home Katie lives with her husband, their two cats, and two dogs, and a revolving door of needy foster pets.
