Meet the Vet

Dr. Sharon L. Daub-Pelker, D.V.M.

Dr. Sharon Daub-Pelker, the founder and owner of P*A*W*S, has known from a very young age that she would be a veterinarian. Her inspiration was her dog “Suzy,” who was a best friend growing up. Dr. Daub-Pelker was born and raised right here in Lancaster County. She graduated from McCaskey High School in 1983 and she earned her BS with Honors degree in Animal Bioscience from Penn State in 1987. She then went to Purdue University and graduated with her D.V.M. degree in 1991. After completing an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston, she returned to the area and practiced with Leader Heights Animal Hospital in York; Smoketown Veterinary Hospital in Smoketown; and the Humane League of Lancaster County.

She lives with her wife Amber, her 20 year old daughter Taylor, 3 dogs, and a cat. She enjoys gardening, family time, reading, using the computer, and Penn State football. She is dedicated to fighting the pet overpopulation problem, teaching responsible pet care, and practicing veterinary medicine to the highest standards.

Dr. Daub-Pelker is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Pennsylania Veterinary Medical Association, the Lesbian and Gay Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association Of Housecall Veterinarians, and the Veterinary Information Network.
