Animal Care Center of Castle Pines (ACCCP) has welcomed two new veterinarians to the practice, Dr. Molly Miller and Dr. Emily Hoard. They join a devoted and dedicated group of animal loving veterinarians and staff members and are excited to become part of the ACCCP team.

Miller headed to veterinarian school after spending several years in the pharmaceutical industry with her undergraduate degree in microbiology. After graduating from Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996, she worked in Indianapolis for five years until she could no longer resist the call of Colorado. Most recently, Miller spent eleven years practicing general veterinary medicine and taking on medical director duties at a practice in the Lone Tree area.

Miller said she joined ACCCP for three main reasons – the center’s standards of care; the practice culture; and the center’s animal loving clients. “Quite simply, ACCCP is committed to the highest level of veterinary care,” she stated. Miller is impressed with the center’s progressive medicine, equipment and technology, as well as the passionate and motivated workforce.

Miller focuses on preventative medicine for both dogs and cats where she integrates the pet owner as part of her team. “I love meeting families and getting to know them as much as I do their beloved pets,” Miller shares. “I am so happy I chose this work nearly 20 years ago!” she added.

Hoard grew up in Nebraska surrounded by all sorts of animals, including ducks, pigs, a pony, a cow, dogs and cats. From a young age, she and her family knew she was destined to be a veterinarian. In 1995, Hoard became a veterinarian tech and went on to veterinary school at Kansas State University, graduating in 2005. She treats dogs and cats from pediatric to geriatric as a general practitioner, including preventative medicine, internal medicine, and surgery – excluding orthopedic surgery.   

Hoard has been searching for the right practice and knew she found it with ACCCP. “I was looking for a veterinary hospital which was American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) certified and practiced very high quality medicine with a positive fun group of employees,” she shared. Hoard is eager and excited to become involved in the Castle Pines community.

“I love the human-animal bond and seeing the joy animals can bring to people’s lives is what drives me.  I am completely passionate about my career, my patients, my clients, and my co-workers!” said Hoard.

Animal Care Center of Castle Pines is located next to Safeway off of Castle Pines Parkway and I-25. For more information about ACCCP, visit
