About Mary-Elizabeth Ellard

Dr. Mary-Elizabeth Ellard hails from Atlanta. After fifteen years in private practice, she answered the call to serve its local shelters. For over a decade now, she has worked with numerous animal welfare organizations providing both surgical and medical services. She currently works with Lifeline Animal Project and Jazzy Paw, Inc. providing high quality high volume spay-neuter for rescues, shelters, and low-income clients. At Inman Park Animal Hospital, she enjoys seeing many patients who are shelter “alumni.” Dr. Ellard’s other passion is history. She speaks regularly on veterinary medicine during the American Civil War and leads historic tours in Atlanta. She serves as Vice President of the Georgia Battlefields Association and on the Executive Committee of the Atlanta Civil War Round Table. She teaches Bible at Peachtree Christian Church. She and her husband Bill live with a pampered shelter cat named Annabelle.
