  • Evynn G.
    Janitorial Specialist

    Evynn was born and raised in our beautiful state of Idaho. She loves everything about the mountains and has always had a deep love for animals. She says that she can’t even kill a mouse! When she was little she would cry when they had to give the kittens away to new homes -her parents finally spayed the cats to spare their guilt. Evynn and her husband, Lenny, have 6 awesome kiddos (4 boys and 2 girls) as well as 2 Airedales, 3 Siamese cats, and 2 geckos! 

  • Independence (^.^)
    Clinic Cat

    This lucky kitten was found by Dr. Parish's daughters while they were watching fireworks July 4, 2018. 'Indy' was dehydrated, very thin, had a severe case of ear mites, and an upper respiratory infection. Her eyes and nose were crusted shut -she was breathing through her mouth. Dr. Parish cleaned her up and started treatment. She has been with the team ever since. We just adore her!
