Aaron CardenasAaron Cardenas

Aaron Cardenas possesses three valuable characteristics that make him a wonderful asset to our hospital: he has an entrepreneurial spirit, he does his best in all assigned tasks, and he loves and understands animals. His job responsibilities include taking care of many dogs and cats, playing with them, feeding and cleaning them, and ensuring that the facility is clean and maintained well. Aaron has worked in the animal related field for over two years and he joined our staff in August 2012.

"I love learning the different personalities of the animals that come to stay with us," he said. "They are all very unique and special in their own way. And if you love them, they always love you back." Aaron enjoys working at Jones Bridge Animal Hospital because of the professional atmosphere and the fact that staff members prioritize each pet's care above all other things.

At home, Aaron enjoys playing with his own two dogs- Mayloh, a German shepherd/puggle mix, and Shadow, a German shepherd/hound mix.

When not at work, Aaron spends his free time being athletic. He is a brown belt in Gojusudoo karate, a green belt in Brazilian jujitsu, and has basic training in judo and Muaythai kickboxing. He enjoys teaching martial arts to children and adults. "I am always looking for ways to grow mentally and spiritually," he said. He also likes swimming, reading, playing chess and collecting plants for his "meditating area".
