    Owner / Veterinarian

    "One of my favorite parts about working at Kelley Animal Hospital is practicing medicine that allows pets to live longer lives with their families that love them.  Finding solutions to medical issues that work for the families that come to Kelley Animal Hospital is why I love coming to work."  -Dr. Adam Hurlbut

    Dr. Adam's first pet was named Dickens, but his family called her Ding for short.  She was an AKC registered Lahsa Apso that tried everything in her power to not live up to that standard.  According to Dr. Adam, she was basically a food obsessed junk yard dog trapped in a fruffy toy breed dog's body.  She was the runt of the litter and ended up being twice the breed standard weight, tipping the scales at about 30 pounds.  She was everything but dainty.  She would chase Dr. Adam's grandparents horses, roll in manure if given the opportunity and take on the black lab farm dogs for any scrap or treat given to the group... and win!  She also played a mean game of hide and seek.  As a child, Dr. Adam would throw a toy and while she chased it he would hide.  Ding would search the house to find him and as the game would go on she would methodically go to each place he had hid previously to make sure he wasn't there. 

    Dr. Adam remembers, "Ding was a truly awesome dog and I will always have a place in my heart for her.  She helped me become a veterinarian.  I distinctly remember pretending to be a vet as a small child, Ding being my patient and always happily participating."  With Ding's influence, Dr. Adam always just kind of knew that he should be a veterinarian.  It never really occurred to him to do anything else.  He always had a strong connection with animals and wildlife and no other career really seemed to interest him as much as veterinary medicine.

    Currently, Dr. Adam has 2 dogs that live with him and his family in White Bear Township.  You have to be sure to ask him how Henry, his golden retriever, came to be a part of his family.  You'll then know why Henry is so attached to Dr. Adam.  Outside of spending time with his family, Dr. Adam enjoys snowboarding, surfing, wake boarding, paddle boarding, riding his motorcycle and teaching his son how to fish.

  • Dr. Lisa Martinson (formerly Heitmiller), DVM

    Associate Veterinarian

    “My favorite part of working at Kelley Animal Hospital is working with our team.  I love working with friendly, well-trained people that work as a team to provide each animal with the best care.”  -Dr. Lisa Martinson

    Dr. Lisa Martinson has always loved animals, but didn’t actually make the decision to become a veterinarian until she was a junior in college.  In her determination she got all of her requirements finished in time for the vet school application and she has “never regretted her decision.”  

    Dr. Martinson’s first pet was a Shetland Sheepdog named Pumpkin.  Her family got her when she was 11 years old.  Not only was Pumpkin the best at snuggling on the couch, she let Dr. Martinson dress her up in clothes!  You can’t get a much better playmate for dress up than that!

    Her first cat, Spencer, followed her dad and sister home from the Dairy Queen.  Her dad made the mistake of telling her sister that if the cat followed her all the way home that they could keep the cat.

    Currently Dr. Martinson has 1 dog and 4 cats that live with her and her family in New Brighton.  In her free time Dr. Martinson enjoys birding.    One of her recent birding highlights was finding a snowy owl.  She also enjoys knitting (for which she has quite a talent), reading, watching movies and camping.

  • Dr. Debbie Thornquist (formerly Rines), DVM

    Associate Veterinarian

    “One of my favorite parts about working at Kelley Animal Hospital is being able to bond with the community.  So many people treasure their animals and I feel privileged to help treat and prevent disease, do surgery and deal with everyday issues that are part of having pets in our lives.  It’s fun to see a dog or cat grow up and to share in their lives through the years.”  -Dr. Debbie Thornquist

    For as long as she can remember, Dr. Debbie Thornquist has wanted to be a veterinarian.  She still has an assignment from the 4th grade that says “when I grow up I want to a vet and a dancer.”  As a vet, Dr. Thornquist gets to combine all of the things she loves: animals, science and helping people.

    Dr. Thornquist’s first pet was a grey tabby cat with a lot of sass.  Fortunately she could turn the sass off for at least little while and cuddle up, because as a little girl, Dr. Thornquist was always wanting to hold her.

    Currently Dr. Thornquist has a dog and a cat that live with her and her family in Blaine.  Her husband actually competes with their dog Ruby in AKC Hunt Tests.  Ruby has earned her Junior and Senior titles and is currently working on her Master title.  As for Dr. Thornquist, she loves spending her free time with her family, dancing (both ballroom and ballet) and taking her daughter for stroller rides.
