She has owned different types of pets over the years, including dogs, cats, degus, hedgehogs, rabbits, rats, and many species of fish. Her care and dedication to a wide variety of animals has advanced her knowledge about them and their specific needs.

CalypsoQuality Control Technician
Calypso started with us in October of 2016. She also wasn’t supposed to stay but has some health issues, so the clinic decided it would be best she lives here. She is mostly blind, has attitude problems, and struggles with IBS and flatulence. She spends her days keeping Ziggy on his toes and making absolutely anything she can find into a toy.
Her favourite pastime is taste testing anything in her reach. She has a lovely singing voice and takes great pleasure in reminding the rest of the staff of this often.
Ziggy StardustCustomer Care Representative
Ziggy became a part of our team in March of 2016. He came in as a part of the rescue and was supposed to be adopted out, but we thought he was too cute and didn’t let him leave. He has since come out of his shell and loves greeting everyone to come through the door and get all their things covered in fur.
His favourite things to do are sleep and cuddle. He tends to drool when he is happy, which is all the time, and gets made fun of for this on a regular basis.
