Meet Our Caring, Experienced Doctors


Dr. Paul Wade, Founder & Owner

Dr. Paul Wade, Founder & Owner

After earning his degree in Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University, Dr. Paul Wade founded a hospital in Littleton, Massachusetts, dedicated to the treatment of small animals, cats, dogs and exotic pets.  After nearly fifteen years at the helm of the hospital, he and his wife sold their business and moved to northern Maine. 

In January of 1994, Dr. Wade opened The Cat Hospital in Manchester, Maine, which is adjacent to The Cat's Inn®. The hospital is centered on the treatment of cats, an area of veterinary medicine that Dr. Wade has studied and practiced extensively.

An avid tennis player and golfer, Dr. Wade is also an inventor and entrepreneur, having created a boarding “townhouse” especially for kitties that is now sold to veterinarians and boarding facilities across the country. (Your kitties can stay in one, too, when you board with us at The Cat’s Inn!)

Dr. Robin Elms, Feline Veterinarian

Dr. Robin Elms attended both Vanderbilt University and Connecticut College majoring in Biology. In 1999 she graduated form the University of Parma Veterinary School in Italy, and worked in England and Italy, where she was intensely involved in cat spaying and feral management. She completed her US veterinary equivalency requirement at Iowa State in 2004, and worked in NJ until moving to Maine in 2009. 

Dr. Elms saw a need for at-home euthanasia services in mid-coast Maine, and in 2010 opened Peaceful Passages, an at-home euthanasia and house-call veterinary service that complements the work she does at The Cat Hospital. She will travel up to two hours to help any animal pass in the comfort of their own home with their beloved caregivers.

Dr. Elms has two grown sons and many cats, dogs, and other pets.
