Sadina Scott, DVM

Dr. Sadina (Sadie) Scott is a graduate of Rockhurst University and the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Scott accomplished a one-year rotating internship the year following veterinary school at a private specialty hospital in Merriam, Kansas. She remained at Mission Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center after her internship for an additional two years of specific training with Internal Medicine, Critical Care and Emergency medicine.  After several years working in specialty and emergency medicine Dr. Scott was recruited into shelter medicine and accepted the role of Chief Veterinarian at Great Plains SPCA where she played an integral role in creating a low-cost public veterinary clinic as well as managing the open-admissions shelter medicine program where they saw nearly 35,000 animals per year through both clinics. She was then recruited to fill the role of Vice President of Veterinary Services at Wayside Waifs where she focused solely on animal welfare for homeless animals. Dr. Scott honed her skills in shelter resource management and was a presenter for the HSUS Animal Care Expo, “Management of Resources for Shelter Veterinarians”. 
In the most recent years Dr. Scott purchased a private clinic where she acts as owner and practicing veterinarian at Family Pet Hospital of Shawnee in Shawnee, Kansas. At the beginning of 2020, Dr. Scott also joined Kansas City Pet Project as their Chief Veterinarian and Medical Director and is growing the shelter medicine program into a Human Animal Support Services (HASS) shelter model. The HASS model is shifting focus into keeping animals in their homes and out of the shelter by providing much needed veterinary services to those that find challenges to veterinary care in their community.

Dr. Scott believes strongly in organized veterinary medicine and is not only serving as the Kansas State Representative for the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association but also as 2021 President of the Kansas City Veterinary Medical Association.  She also sits on the Legislative Committee and Animal Welfare Committee for the Missouri Veterinary Medical Board.  She was one of ten Missouri veterinarians that were chosen to participate in the Power of Ten hosted by the Missouri Veterinary Medical Association in 2021.

In her rare moments of free time, Dr. Scott and her husband travel with a group of veterinarians and their families, with Be the Change volunteers, to the most impoverished and remote areas in the world to build brick and mortar schools to give the hope of education to the ones who need it most.
