Meet Us Monday – Staff Spotlight

Gerry F

We will be spotlighting all of our special staff members this year on something we like to call "Meet Us Monday".  You see our faces when you bring your pets in for medical treatment or lodging, but do you really know us?  Do you know what song we would sing at Karaoke if given the choice?  Do you know what we things we consider ourselves to be supremely terrible at doing?  If we could travel anywhere in the world, where would we go?  The answers to these questions and more can be found right here in our BLOG every Monday!!

Our first "Meet Us Monday" staff spotlight is Gerry, pictured here with her dog, Bo.
