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.  Afterall, my family has deep roots in this community and they have lived here for over 40 years!

My husband and I share our home with 2 Miniature Australian Shepherds, Kiley and Blaze, a cat named Fury, a cockatiel named Magoo, an Appaloosa llama named Lola, 4 alpacas Colada, Lee, Levi, and Olive; 2 Nigerian Dwarf goats Clover and Aami, 2 ducks Hoover and Dyson, and last but not least 7 chickens Rhodie, Goldie, Daisy, Gaga, Buttercup, Stripe, and Dot.

As you can see, we have quite a menagerie of pets who mean the world to us!

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

I have learned a ton being in the veterinary medicine field and I look forward to expanding my knowledge here at Sunrise Veterinary Clinic! I absolutely love being around so many diverse breeds and furbaby personalities.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my dog named Puppy. We love to travel and go for walks in new places, but also appreciate the lazy days on the couch binge-watching our favorite TV shows. I was born and raised in the Tri-Cities, WA area, so I am fortunate to have a wonderful support system here with my family & friends as well.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your two- & four-legged family members!

Rebekka

Rebekka

Client Care Specialist

Hello everyone my name is Rebekka! I’m extremely excited about starting my journey at Sunrise Veterinary Clinic and seeing where this road takes me on this career path! Let’s just say I’m extremely excited to meet everyone’s 4 legged pets!

When I was younger I lived in Prosser where I grew up on a Cow/Calf Ranch, always staying busy because work on the ranch never stopped. In my spare time I’d ride my horse Hank and spend the rest of my time with my dogs. When it was time for a slight break away from the farm you could catch me riding dirt bikes in the summer and in the winter time I’d be in the mountains riding snowmobiles.

I just moved to Benton City with my man and our fur babies- In my spare time you can still catch me in the mountains (it doesn’t matter the time of year) or enjoying my Hobby/Small business being a Lifestyle Portrait Photographer. I’m a very happy go lucky person. Smiling is addictive, and I’m stoked to be a part of a Team that always puts a smile on client and patient faces!

Hannah W.

Client Care Specialist

Greetings! My name is Hannah and I have had the pleasure of being involved in the veterinary field as a Client Service Coordinator for 4 years. I recently joined the staff of Sunrise Veterinary clinic and I can say this has been the best team to be a part of! 

Animals play a big role in my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I have three cats and their names are Tiggy, Peach, and Bowser. 

I am currently enrolled at Spokane Community College and I am three-quarters shy from graduating with my Associate’s Degree as a Medical office specialist. 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family (and my cats of course!), hosting game nights, gardening, and going on walks.  

I am eager to work with our community and their beloved pets. I can’t wait to meet you!

Helping to take care of them, healthy or sick, is a huge passion of mine.

In my free time, I love spending my day with my three Miniature Dachshunds and taking them to various sporting events made for dogs!

Sydney

Sydney

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 am 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!

We're proud to serve Benton City, WA and the surrounding communities.

At Sunrise Veterinary Clinic, we go above and beyond to take an individualized approach to each of our patients. You and your pet's comfort and safety are always our top priority!
