In June 2014, Dr. Shawn Costello and Dr. Shannon Moore purchased Hartland Veterinary Clinic to provide exceptional care and veterinary services to all of their patients. Our staff is truly dedicated to our patients and will do everything in our power to ensure they lead a long and happy life, including following up with them to see how they are doing after check-ups and procedures.
Dr. Shannon Moore grew up in Woodstock, IL, and started working for Dr. Shawn Costello and Dr. Charles Svoboda when she was 16 at Harvard Veterinary Clinic. She decided to become a veterinarian after the encouragement of Dr. Shawn and Dr. Chuck. She received her undergraduate degree in 2007 and graduated with her veterinary degree in 2011 from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. It was truly a dream come true when she had the opportunity to purchase Hartland Veterinary Clinic in 2014 with Dr. Shawn and Dr. Chuck. She has a passion for internal medicine, a soft spot for Doberman Pinschers, and is extremely devoted to her patients. In her free time, Dr. Shannon loves spending time with her husband, Nick Moore, their two girls, Tally and Anna, as well as her dog, Dump Truck, who comes with her every day to the office.
Dr. Shawn Costello grew up in Woodstock, IL and has been practicing veterinary medicine since he graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in 1986. Along with Hartland Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Shawn also is co-owner of Harvard Veterinary Clinic in Harvard, IL. Dr. Shawn loves both soft tissue and orthopedic surgery and enjoys being able to work with animals every single day. When he is not working, he loves to run out in his pasture with his “Jack Russell terrorists” and spend time with his daughter, Catie. He also enjoys traveling, hiking in the wilderness, and photography.
Amanda started out in 2003 as a veterinary assistant, working with her Bobsie twin Shannon, for Dr. Shawn at the Harvard Veterinary Clinic. She worked many years in small and large animal medicine to become a veterinary technician with a special interest in inpatient care surgery and dentistry. She is happy to be reunited with both again at the Hartland Veterinary Clinic. She enjoys horseback riding and vacationing at her family’s lake house in Wisconsin. She has many fur babies, including her three dogs, Roxy, Odin, and Flame. She also has a variety of chickens, peacocks, and three horses.
Ashley found her career passion working with animals big and small when she started working for Dr. Shawn and Dr. Chuck at the Harvard Veterinary Clinic in 2006. Harvard is where she first met Dr. Shannon (a fellow vet assistant at the time) and is thrilled to be working with her once again. She has two dogs and a cat (no one should be left home alone) and would love to have a whole menagerie one day. Her favorite part of working at a veterinary clinic is that making animals feel special and cared for is in the job description! When she isn’t spending time with her children, she enjoys watching movies, traveling, and shoe shopping. Ashley is also an avid sports fan and her favorite sport is hockey.
Cheryl has been working in veterinary medicine at Hartland Veterinary Clinic since 1998, beginning with Dr. Genge and now working for Dr. Shannon and Dr. Shawn. She has handled various animals over the years including alpacas, a kangaroo, and various fur-babies. She has lived in this area since 1991 with her husband and three dogs, JoJo, Millie, and Benny, as well as two blue Connor birds. Cheryl loves all sorts of animals and is our kennel manager — she’ll make sure your pet is comfortable during their boarding stay. She is busy outside of work with her five children and 14 grandchildren, whom she loves to see very much. She is also an avid gardener and enjoys caring for her pond and feeding the fish.
Katelyn started working at HVC in 2016. Prior to working at Hartland, she worked on her husband’s family dairy farm for over 12 years! Kate grew up on a small farmette in the Harvard, IL, area where she helped raise sheep, goats, chickens, horses, ducks, geese, dairy heifers, dogs, and cats. She has an assortment of Holstein and Jersey dairy cows, loveable barn cats, and a sweet English Shepherd, Tractor, on the farm. Kate also has five kids who enjoy farm life, sports, and 4-H. Kate loves to be able to help by making your fur babies feel better and be as comfortable as possible while at the clinic! Her favorite things about working at HVC include puppies, kittens, dogs, cats, PUPPIES, and more puppies!
Steph is the youngest at Hartland, even though she started at the clinic in 2015. When she’s not making the doctors and techs feel old, she enjoys taking x-rays and caring for pets in the clinic. When she’s not at the clinic, she’s busy taking care of her zoo of animals at home. She currently has five dogs, five horses, two cats, sheep, and chickens. When she’s done with chores, she enjoys collecting books, reading, and watching movies in her home theater.

Very important! The tartar and staining on your pet’s teeth actually contains bacteria. If this is left untreated, it can cause premature periodontal disease, heart disease, liver disease and kidney failure. Dental care for your pet is very important for a long, healthy life.
Heartworms are parasites that dogs and cats can get from mosquito bites. The mosquito bites them, depositing larvae that migrate to the heart where they become adults. Despite fur, mosquitoes can still bite dogs and cats and transmit the disease. It is important to have yearly heartworm testing and keep them on a monthly preventative at home.
There is always a risk with anesthesia, however, that risk is minimal if appropriate steps are taken before and during surgery. A thorough physical examination will be done to make sure there are no apparent abnormalities, and if there are, we will discuss better treatment protocols for your pet prior to anesthesia. We also offer in-house preoperative bloodwork. In addition, during any procedure in which anesthesia is administered, a technician will monitor your pet.
