Hello my name is Ronni. I've been a vet tech for 11 years and have had a passion and love for animals my whole life. I have a big crazy Pit mix named Max and a big sweet tabby cat named Ham Bone. When I'm not working I love to draw and paint, or go have fun with friends and family.
Hello, my name is Kandie. I am originally from SC moving to AZ with my significant other and our 3 fur babies, a chihuahua named Gracie that I've had since high school, a lab named Cinder and more recently a kitten named Rusty. I've had a passion for working with animals since I was 10, although I didn't start my career until later in life. In my off time, I enjoy reading, cooking, and enjoying the outdoors with family.
Ashley moved from Texas to Arizona in the beginning of 2022. She knew from the age of 7, after getting her first dogs, that she wanted to work with animals. She has now been a technician for 4 years and absolutely loves every second of it! She has a tabby cat named Munch and a Belgian Malinois named Nala at home which she adores!
My name is Rhonda, I have worked here for 19 years as a veterinary assistant/technician. I have two dogs Recker and Cleo, one cat, a goffin cockatoo, and many reptiles. When I'm not working or taking care of my own animals you can find me enjoying the outdoors, or in the kitchen baking and cooking. I look forward to continuing to care for your pets.
