Dr. Michael Schafer
I have worked at Sagamore Animal Hospital since 1987 and have been the proud owner since 1989. I am fortunate to have an incredibly conscientious and dedicated staff and wonderful clients. My personal life revolves around my wife and two adult children. We are expecting our first grandchild in August! Our home farm includes 9 horses, 3 cats, 3 dogs, 8 chickens and a pot belly pig named Archie. I enjoy many things outdoors including hiking, biking, camping, snow boarding and boating. I like building projects and woodworking as well. My most enjoyable therapy though is trail running with my Jack Russell Terrier, Tia.
