Plus, longtime clients, who have moved out of the area, continue to drive the long distance to see him. Dr. Vaughan continues to devote his time and attention to several rescue groups including, Cocker Spaniel Rescue, Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Houston Sheltie Sanctuary, Border Collie Rescue of Texas, and Houston Beagle and Hound Rescue.

Administration

Caroline Vaughan

Hospital Administrator

Caroline Vaughan graduated from Louisiana State University and earned a Master of Science degree in Marketing in 1995. After six years of being a Project Director for a local marketing research firm, she decided to join her husband at Bingle Vet. Over the last 19 years, Caroline’s goal has been to create a first-class veterinary practice with a focus on excellent patient care and exceptional service. She believes that a client’s visit is all about the experience when they walk in our doors to when they leave. Another extraordinary thing that Caroline implemented was our 10-min Guarantee – she does not believe that clients should have to be waiting a long time before their pet is seen by one of our professionals. She wants her clients to become Raving Fans and to always call if there are ever any problems or concerns. She believes that when you become a client at Bingle Vet you become a part of our family. Her latest accomplishment is building a Veterinary Franchise model – her goal is to bring the veterinary practice back to the doctors.

Jazmin Castellon

Animal Care Specialist

As a child, Jazmin always saw herself having a job that dealt with animals. If you asked seven-year-old Jazmin what she wanted to be when she grew up, her answer would be to work at a vet! It didn’t matter what position she’d be working in, all she wanted was to be surrounded by animals. Now that she is working at a vet clinic, she is very happy – not just because she gets to work with all the precious dogs and cats – but because she gets to learn and grow in a place where she feels very lucky and comfortable. She’s never been a part of a team that was so strong and with a great vision for not just the employees, but for the clients as well. She is learning that Bingle Vet is all about being part of a big family, including the clients, which we grow to have a connection with.

Daniel Figueroa

Animal Care Specialist

I chose to be an Animal Care Specialist because animals deserve to be cared for by someone who actually cares for them. If I were a client I would want to know that the employees love my pet as much as I do. I love animals, dogs in specific because they are the most common pet I get to see, giving me chances to pet a lot of them. I will always be patient and cautious with every pet that comes in, no matter their situation, loving them no different from others.
