   Sarah started volunteering through a work experience program in September 2012, then became a permanent fixture in April 2013 when she started working after school and full time during the summer months. Sarah is a big help when it comes to doing the little jobs that get forgotten through out the day, and she is always happy to do them! She plans on going into Veterinary Medicine when she graduates from High School and will have gained lots of experience in a Veterinary Clinic by the time she gets there. She is going to be a great Veterinarian some day and with her little Pomeranian "Haydez" by her side she will do great things!

 Clinic Greeters:

 Miss Winks 

You will see this adorable face at the Carlyle location. Miss Winks enjoys spending her days sleeping by the window in the exam room on her fluffy pillow. When she gets the opportunity to explore outside she likes chasing grasshoppers and "hunting" the gophers that live under the isolation ward.  


Sprinkles is a relatively new addition to our support staff, working out of our Kipling location, since January 2017. Her primary role in our clinic is head greeter.   She likes to take her daily nap on the desk, occasionally venturing outside, only to realize she actually hates the outdoors, after about 5 minutes of it.  She gets along well with most animals that come in to our clinic.  Her friendly and loving nature, are great assets to our clients and staff in Kipling!
