"My life has been totally about working with animals which has allowed me to have great pet industry jobs. I started training dogs at the age of 8. This helped me manage a major dog kennel, that proved interest in sales of pet supplies. These jobs allowed me to travel the country. As life throws curveballs, I got married and had 2 amazing children. I have enjoyed coming off the sales road and now enjoy working at RRAH. I also returned to dog training.

In 2019 Meredith crossed the rainbow bridge. She is deeply missed by our staff and clients. Princess Meredith will always hold a special place in our hearts.
"The first owner of RRAH, Dr. Tom Young, was going to give me to his niece. However, when Dr. Young brought me to the hospital, he realized I brought such style and grace to the practice, I just had to stay. I can be seen grooming myself when I'm not greeting clients. My job here is to keep everyone in line and to add beauty and class to the environment. My hobbies include napping, posing, being petted, being adored, and looking at Joey with disdain. One day I hope to take over the practice.
I have several human pets that I have trained to meet my every need."
Joey (Derp) Since 2012
"Dr. Roger adopted me as a kitten from a client and I came to live at RRAH. I am a very sweet and affectionate boy. I have successfully kicked the habit of peeing outside my litter box. My job is to bring joy to all of my coworkers (except Meredith). I remind the humans to play, cuddle, and laugh. My hobbies include supervising dental and ultrasound procedures, stealing tape, and inventing toys from every day objects. One day I hope to catch my tail.
I have a pet bird that chirps when I play with him. Meredith says he's not a real bird, but I don't believe her."
In Loving Memory
Everyone knew Kellie with a huge smile on her face and a big hug waiting for whoever needed it. She cared for patients as if they were her own and truly held our work family together. We are all completely heartbroken and will cherish her forever.
