Hello! My name is Hunter Hays. I was born and raised in Colorado and can’t imagine living anywhere else. I am originally from Westminster but moved to Arvada in 2010 to play football and run track at Ralston Valley High School. When I wasn’t playing sports I was spending my time hanging with friends and playing alternative/punk music in a “basement band”. In 2015 I started attending Colorado State University to further my education in Zoology, where I also had the opportunity to shadow with an exotic animal veterinarian where I truly found my passion and haven’t looked back since.

I currently live with my Dad, Step-mom, and the best little guy in the world our French Bulldog Melvin (but we like to call him Smellvin). I love to spend my free time relaxing at home with them and going to concerts with friends. Though my failed band days are behind me I still frequently play the guitar and attempt to sing and have recently started playing piano! I am incredibly lucky to be a part of the Veterinary Center of Parker Inc. family and look forward to everyday I get to spend with all these amazing people and animals. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry companions!
