Dr. Daniels is involved in many community organizations and events, locally and regionally.  As a member of Disaster Animal Response Teams, she became FEMA ICS certified and worked with other veterinarians to organize the Tampa Bay Regional Disaster Symposium.  The Animal Veterinary Medical Foundation awarded a grant for this symposium and it is accredited by the Florida Veterinary Medical Association.  She is also a guest lecturer and teaches disaster medicine to veterinarians and ways veterinary hospitals can prepare for events.  

Dr. Daniels has been featured on The Weather Channels Animal Storm Stories as she volunteered in Punta Gorda after Hurricane Charley.  They documented her relief efforts and mobilization of the community to help animals and their families.  

Locally, Dr. Daniels is the Co-Founder of the Pasco Hernando Veterinary Medical Association, and is an a member of the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce. She volunteers as Chair of the Pets Emergency Training Services to teach First Responders and Firefighters emergency aid, CPR, and Oxygen administration for pets.  She is a member of the Florida Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association.  Dr. Daniels is also a two time FVMA Gold Star Award recipient for her Outstanding Contributions to Veterinary Medicine. 

Dr. Daniels' family includes three dogs and two cats.  Gator, a jack russell terrier, Austin a shepherd/lab mix, and Marmalade a ginger domestic shorthair cat. Gator was a stray hit by car that Dr. Daniels and Dr. Griffin (from Animal care center) surgically repaired fractures to both his rear legs.  He had a successful recovery and has a spunky character.  Austin is a rescue dog found playing in traffic.  Uninjured but also unowned, he joined the Daniels family. Marmalade was found by Dr. Daniels sister after receiving a tip that she was thrown in a dumpster. After surviving an illness, she is living a very healthy life.  The new feline edition to the family is Duckie - a domestic shorthair kitten rescued by the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.  Just 12 weeks old - it was love at first paw - she is getting adjusted to the Daniels household in a playful yet mischievous way.  The newest canine addition is Rocky.  Rocky was an abandoned dog that was heartworm positive and needed extensive surgery to repair lesions to his skin and musculature.  Dr. Daniels and her staff volunteered to surgically repair Rocky's wounds and treat his heartworm disease and in the process of his foster care at Dr. Daniels' house, he became a permanent part of the family. 

Dr. Jo Ann Daniels and her staff share the philosophy of treating animals and their families as if they are our own.  We understand and respect the close bond you share with your four legged family members.
