Dr. Jinni Beens

Owner/Fear Free Certified Veterinarian

“My call to care for animals came to me when I was 4 years old. My friends and I found a stray dog on the streets of Russia and we spent over a week keeping the dog hidden while dog catchers were in our area. Since then I grew up finding those stray animals, cleaning them, feeding them, and bandaging their wounds (sometimes using my own clothes). When I was a young adult, I was accepted into a veterinary school in the city of Moscow which was 2 hours away from the little village where I lived. Every night, when I finally got home from school there was a line of pets with their very preoccupied people waiting for me to treat their various maladies. Breakouts of distemper and parvovirus were common in our building and it was heartbreaking to lose those pets.”

Dr. Jinni graduated from University of Guelph in 2001. She has started her studies in Moscow, Russia right after high school. Her passion has always been ensuring that your pets live long and healthy lives. Her special interest is in dentistry. In fact, Dr. Demine routinely donates her time to perform dentals for pets in Humane Societies and Rescues to ensure they get a great start with their fur-ever families.

Dr. Jinni’s other passion is exotic pet care. Her dream is to be a mom of a Russian Box Tortoise, that is in addition to her dog, Deysi, and her cat, Vasilisa. In her spare time, Dr. Beens is very involved in the community. Her community passion is to promote and initiate any programs through Rotary International involving youth. Dr. Jinni and her 3 children have been a host family for many teenagers from around the world.


Fear Free Certified Practice Manager

“As a child, I always wanted to be a Veterinarian, but I ended up in Public Relations and Corporate Communications, and specializing in Human Resources and Business Management. This afforded me the opportunity to work in a large variety of industries, and the experiences have given me the skills to take care of the people who take care of your pets. Happy staff with a good work-life balance are of the utmost importance to me as it is reflected in everything we do. Being in the veterinary clinic is simply the icing on the cake!”

Andrew was born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario, and moved to the Quinte area in 2015.

“As long as I can remember I have been fascinated with animals. Everything from their biology to their behavior has captivated my interest. As an athlete, I have also come to love the comraderie and energy that a close-knit team creates. Veterinary medicine allows me to immerse myself in my passion while working closely with a team that shares that passion. There is no other place I’d rather be working.”

Justin is a registered veterinary technician here at Trenton Pet Hospital. He comes to us after 5 years working at a hospital in Aurora, Ontario.

“I think most of the people in the world of animal care knew they wanted to work with animals early in life, and that’s exactly what happened to me. Ever since I finished high school, I’ve been working with animals. Whether it be volunteering in Costa Rica to assist freshly hatched sea turtles safely make their way into the sea, fostering cats and dogs with the local rescue organization, completing two separate wildlife internships or working in a clinic, I’ve spent the majourity of my life in the animal world. And I’ve been loving every minute of it.”

Alysha graduated from the Veterinary Technology Program at St. Lawrence College and has joined our team in May 2023.

Fear Free Certified Veterinary Assistant & Treatment Room Coordinator

“From a very early age, I knew I wanted a career working with animals. From walking neighborhood dogs, looking after stray neighborhood cats, volunteering at local horse barns and the Humane Societies, there was always something so satisfying about helping animals in need. I graduated from St. Lawrence College with my Veterinary Assistant certificate and have worked in this amazing field on and off.”

For the past 2 years, Heather has been working closely with Dogs and Cats of the Dominican Republic, helping give a voice to those who can not speak for themselves.
Volunteering in the Dominican in February 2019 with DCDR made Heather realize that she needed to get back in the field she was always meant to be in – helping animals in need!

“I have loved animals all my life, and  always felt that I need to be an advocate for them. Growing up I always wanted to be a vet but sometimes life has other plans. I ended up working in the public sector which was also rewarding. In 2012, I had the opportunity to go back to college and chose to do the Animal Care course. Since then I’ve been so fortunate to work with animals. I even took my passion one step further, in 2010 I started volunteering and fostering dogs with some rescue organizations. In 2012 My best friend and I cofounded Just Paws Animal Rescue a foster based dog rescue, and to this date, we have placed over 1000 dogs (and some cats) into their forever homes. We have taken in dogs on death row in shelters, international dogs whose lives looked bleak, and assisted owners who can no longer take care of their pets due to life’s circumstances. I have a beautiful, compassionate daughter, and 2 of my own dogs, and I now feel my life is complete and fulfilled.”
