Aimee Christian, MA, MEd
Vice President of Animal Welfare and Veterinary Services, Animal Rescue League of Boston
Aimee Christian joined the ASPCA in 2005 to manage the organization’s spay/neuter program and currently serves as the Vice President of Community Medicine. Aimee also leads the ASPCA’s efforts to increase national access to basic veterinary care. Under her leadership, the ASPCA’s spay/neuter program grew from two mobile spay/neuter clinics in New York City to the largest community medicine program in the country with three stationary clinics and a fleet of mobile clinics providing both mobile spay/neuter and primary pet care in New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami. Additional clinics are set to open in the Bronx and Brooklyn in 2020. The Community Medicine program of the ASPCA actively improves access to basic care for financially underserved pet owners, increasing the number of animals that stay with their owners instead of entering a shelter and improving the welfare of the pets and their families. In 2019, the program spayed/neutered nearly 70,000 cats and dogs and assisted thousands more with fully subsidized primary pet care. Prior to joining the ASPCA, Aimee was a public school teacher. She received two Master’s degrees from Harvard University, and her Bachelor’s degree from Hunter College in New York City. A native New Yorker, she now lives outside of Boston with her spouse and two children, along with their two cats and six chickens.
