Sharon Molton D.V.M.

Practice Owner

I love being able to provide compassionate, individualized care to my patients. I feel that I am making a difference in the lives of not only my pet patients but their human families as well.

For as long as I can remember, I always knew that I wanted to become a veterinarian. I am a Tri-Cities native and spent my childhood growing up with cats, dogs, ducks, a variety of pocket pets, and horses. I was heavily involved in 4-H and Pony Club and started working at a local mixed animal veterinary clinic as soon as I was able to drive.

Upon graduation from veterinary school, I decided to spread my wings and spent the first 11 years of my career practicing small animal medicine in Western Washington. I grew weary of the traffic and gray skies, and in 2011 moved back home. After all, my family has deep roots in this community and they have lived here for over 40 years!

I love all animals and have quite a menagerie of my own! Blaze, a miniature Australian Shepherd, Fury, a long-haired cat, Smokey, a Paint horse, a cockatiel named Magoo, an Appaloosa llama named Lola, 3 alpacas Colada, Lee, and Olive; a Nigerian Dwarf goat named Aami, 2 ducks Hoover and Dyson, and last but not least 5 chickens Daisy, Gaga, Buttercup, Stripe, and Dot.

I look forward to meeting you and your four-legged family members and promise to give them the most compassionate, individualized, and quality care!

Kennel Assistant

Hi! My name is Sydney, and I am a Kennel Assistant here at Sunrise Vet Clinic. Ever since I was little I have felt a strong connection towards animals. I am one day hoping to become a Veterinarian myself and have my own clinic.

I’m currently a Junior at Richland High School, as well as a running start student at Washington State University. I have 3 fur babies-Ruby, a Golden Retriever, Tucker, a Norwegian Elkhound, and Molly, a Yellow Lab. I am a competitive swimmer, so my free time is mainly taken with swimming or lifting. When I do find myself with free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family as well as my friends. I love being active. In the summer I am usually somewhere near the water, and in the winter I’ll be on the slopes snowboarding!
