Dr. Jeff Pendleton

Dr. Pendleton

Jeff Pendleton, D.V.M. graduated from Allegheny College in 1985 and Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 1989. A native of Erie, Pa, he and his wife, Evelyn, moved to Lancaster in 1995 and started Harrisburg Pike Animal Hospital the following year. Their family consists of their 3 children: James, Scott, and Diana; 3 dogs, 2 cats, a rabbit, a guinea pig, a bird, and a bearded dragon. In his spare time, Dr. Pendleton enjoys jogging, reading history books, and skiing.




My name is Jessica Urban and I'm the office manager at Harrisburg Pike Animal Hospital. I've worked here since October 2000. My love for animals developed at an early age from growing up on my family's 86-acre farm. I currently live in Columbia with my husband, Matthew, our daughter, Anya, and our son, Austin. We have a miniature "zoo" that includes cats, dogs, fish, frogs, turtles, and even a duck!


Hey! I'm Kate and I've been a part-time employee since 2000. I love the excitement and challenges my job brings each day as well as my dedicated coworkers. Assisting animals and their people are my passions.
In my spare time, I love being outside, reading new books or old favorites and spending time with my cats, Paddy and Miko.


Jess S.

I'm known as Jess S. at the animal hospital. I've been working for Dr. Pendleton since 2007. When I lived in Anchorage, AK, I worked for a rescue center, veterinary clinics and boarding facilities.
I've returned to Lancaster to start the next chapter in my life. I plan to continue my education in the field. I have two dogs: Shelby, a mixed breed that I rescued, and Layla, a golden retriever.



My name is Alyssa and I'm an Approved Veterinary Assistant. In 2012, I graduated from Penn Manor High School and the Willow Street campus of Lancaster Career and technology Center. I began working at Harrisburg Pike Animal Hospital in August of 2013. I have a black lab, Jake, and a toy boxer, Toby. The aspect I love most about working here is having the opportunity to make a difference in animals and their owners' lives.



My name is George and I've been on staff at Harrisburg Pike Animal Hospital since 1999 doing hospital building maintenance and repairs. I also work in the kennels. I've been married for 53 years. I love sports and have played senior softball for 13 years. I have a Boxer named Caesar.


My name is Diana Pendleton, daughter of Dr. Pendleton. I work part time and am the youngest member of the staff.
I'm a sophomore at Hempfield and run cross country and track for the varsity teams. I aspire to follow in my father's footsteps to become a veterinarian. To me, the best part about working here is knowing you can always do something to help an animal, from providing comfort or saving a life. I have three crazy dogs, Oreo, Disco, and Spencer.


My name is Scott Pendleton and I'm the younger son of Dr. Pendleton. I've been working as a part time assistant at Harrisburg Pike Animal Hospital since the summer of 2009. I own three dogs: a dachshund named Disco, a lhasa apso, whose name is Spencer, and a Jack Russel terrier whose name is Oreo and is pictured with me. Currently, I'm a senior at Hempfield High School, where I participate in soccer, track, Varsity Club and Steering Committee. My plan for college is to major in either biology or international relations. The best part about working here is knowing I can make a positive impact on the health of animals and their owners lives.



My name is James Pendleton, the oldest son of Dr. Pendleton. I'm in my junior year as an actuarial science major at Purdue University. I've been working at Harrisburg Pike Animal Hospital since the summer of 2007. I have three dogs: Disco, a dachshund, Oreo, a Jack Russel terrier, and Spencer, a lhasa apso.



My name is Matthew Urban. I've worked for Dr. Pendleton since 2001 as a weekend kennel technician. I have a great love for animals and enjoy being around them every day. I'm a native of Lancaster County and currently live in Columbia with my wife, Jessica, our daughter, Anya, and our son, Austin. My family and I have our own miniature "zoo" that includes cats, dogs, fish, frogs, turtles and a duck.
