Office Manager

Patti
Patti’s primary position is bookkeeper, however, due to her experience; she is able to “fill in just about anywhere.” In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends – boating, hunting, camping, snowmobiling, and “just about any outdoor activity.” Patti has a chocolate lab, Baylee, and one horse.

Clinic Greeter

Harold
Harold is 8 years old. He adopted us in 2015. He was brought to us from a client who had this friendly cat who kept showing up at her door. The Vet wanted a tuxedo or an orange cat to become our clinic greeter. When he finally met Harold it was meant to be!

His job includes sleeping, napping, awkward staring, showing up at the wrong time, day dreaming, and disapprovingly staring at any dog who looks at him. His favorite time of day is 5pm when he receives treats on the countertop. If by chance the staff is late in doing this, they will get a swat to remind them to do their job.
