Dr. JD Freese

Dr. JD Freese is the owner and practicing veterinarian at Aloha Animal hospital.  He was raised on a small farm in Southern York County, PA by his mother and father who instilled the value and importance of caring for people, family, and animals. He knew he had a calling in life to be able to help not only our pets, but also those who love and care for them. After graduating from Susquennock High School in 1998, he pursued a degree in Biology at Ursinus College. After graduating from Ursinus College in 2002, Dr. Freese continued his education at St. George’s School of Veterinary Medicine in Grenada, where he graduated in 2007 with a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (DVM). He moved back to his roots in Southern York County, PA and practiced as an associate veterinarian at an animal hospital for 10 years. In 2017, he pursued his dream of owning his own clinic in the area where he grew up. He made the decision to become the owner and practicing veterinarian of Aloha Animal Hospital. When Dr. Freese is not working, he enjoys running, hiking, taking care of his small farm, and raising five children with his loving wife.

Our Founders

Aloha Animal Hospital would not be what it is today if not for Drs. Brian Jenkins and Jodi Stolz-Jenkins. They are enjoying a well-deserved retirement as of December 2020. Their dedication to outstanding medicine and serving their patients and clients with genuine compassion is something we aim to carry forward far into the future. We’re grateful for all they’ve done, and for setting a standard of excellent veterinary care here in Hanover.
