In 2004, we started as Driftwood Kennels. In 2016, we became DRIFTWOOD BOARDING & WELLNESS to reflect our shift in our approach to animal care under new ownership. In November of 2017, DRIFTWOOD VET officially opened to serve as a local veterinary clinic for small animals.

We provide compassionate, affordable care that is insanely convenient, starting with sudden service and ending with delighted clients.

Located just a mile north of city limits near the Highlands and Fallbrook neighborhoods in NW Lincoln, we are just a few short minutes from the airport and downtown Lincoln, Nebraska. Our facility is situated on 20 scenic acres of rolling native grassland, with private hiking trails carved for our special guests to explore.

Dr. Tony



Dr. Tony, the owner of Driftwood Vet, has been in many phases of veterinary medicine over the years, from starting out as a kennel assistant in high school, to a veterinary assistant in college, professionally as a veterinarian in a private practice, and then as a consulting vet in industry. Dr. Tony is currently the veterinarian on the Nebraska State Board of Health. He has advanced training and expertise in the areas of parasitology, immunology, vaccinology, pathology, dentistry, nutrition, pharmacology, and ultrasonography! (He does ultrasound studies for Lincoln and Omaha area clinics!) He and his wife Erica have five kids and a beloved 84-pound boxer named Titus.




Jami is our Groomer and has been with us since May 2018, but has been working as a groomer for 3 years. She is a certified groomer that started out as a bather because of her love of dogs, but she quickly ranked up and graduated from her grooming internship in Lincoln. She has always wanted to work with dogs and has done work in doggie daycare and boarding kennels before as well. Thanks to her own research and experience, she prides herself on her understanding of dog behavior! She is pictured with her dog Bernard who is 4 years old and loves coming to work with her, so you may get the chance to meet both of them at Driftwood!




Camryn is our Trainer who is currently a Junior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln studying Animal Science with a focus on companion animals. She has had over 9 years of dog training experience, and also plans on continuing on to Training School after graduation and eventually opening her own business. Camryn shares her home with her 3 dogs, Kadie, Maggie, and Remi (pictured), as well as with her hamster, Pancake.



Lacey has been working at Driftwood since March 2018. Not only does she bring her compassion for animals, both large and small, she’s also an experienced graphic designer and is certified in Bovine Artificial Insemination. At home, she and her husband T.J. have an Australian Shepherd (Maveric, pictured), a blue Heeler (Blue), and 3 wonderful cowy horses.



Cole has been working since June 2018. He recently graduated from the university of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in Animal Science with dreams of becoming a veterinarian someday. He’s applying to vet school this year and gaining as much experience as he can in the meantime here at Driftwood. He has a German Shorthair Pointer at home named Kylo and one day wants to own a Brittany Spaniel!




Carolyn is one of our employees that has been working with us since September 2017. She graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2015 and then went on to get her masters in reptile ecology down in Florida. She’s back now and will be attending the veterinary program at UNL-ISU as a member of the class of 2022 where she hopes to keep pursuing a career working with animals as a veterinarian (so we’ll be seeing her less often during the school year). Carolyn and her Husband Kyle own CeeCee the cat (pictured), Jemma the Golden Retriever, as well as a toad and a gecko.
