Dr. Frank


Introducing Dr. Rachel Frank, a compassionate veterinarian deeply rooted in the heart of Oregon. After a brief stint on the East Coast for her undergraduate studies, Dr. Frank returned to her home state to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a Veterinarian. Her journey led her through the realm of human medical research at the Multiple Sclerosis Center of OHSU before she found her true calling in veterinary medicine.

Graduating from Oregon State University in 2010, Dr. Frank has dedicated herself to small animal general practice and shelter medicine in the picturesque landscapes of the Willamette Valley. Additionally, she serves as the staff veterinarian at Oregon Dog Rescue, extending her expertise to help animals in need beyond clinic walls.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Dr. Frank finds joy in embarking on adventures with her husband John and their two children, Kieran and Saoirse. As an avid enthusiast for canine companionship, she shares her home with a delightful assortment of dogs, ranging from border collies to a Pomeranian, a Chihuahua, and two Pugs. Engaging in activities such as canine agility and dock diving with her herding dogs, Dr. Frank's household is further enriched by the presence of three spirited cats who play a vital role in maintaining harmony among their furry family members, including frequent foster dogs.

Driven by her deep-rooted passion for nurturing the bond between people and their pets, Dr. Frank aspires to contribute to the preservation of happy, healthy relationships for as long as possible. With her unwavering dedication and boundless compassion, Dr. Rachel Frank continues to make a meaningful difference in the lives of both animals and their human companions at Willamette Valley Animal Hospital.
