Sheldon is a 1.5 year old golden retriever belonging to our Lead Therapist Meghan! Sheldon loves going for walks and runs, eating everything under the sun (even things he’s not supposed to!), and cuddling. He loves learning new tricks and meeting new friends, both human and furry friends.


Texas is a good dog who has a lot of feelings, opinions, and is quite chatty around new people. Our clinic therapist Troy rescued her and suspects her to be a 7 year old Australian Shephard/Collie mix. She likes going to the dog park to make friends and works from home as the neighborhood watch.  Texas is a real smart dog who is learning to put her toys away in her basket and is doing very well.  She has a black coat with brown accents, cute floopie ears and a tongue that hangs out of her mouth most of the time.  She is allergic to chicken, chicken products and will break out in hives if she gets ahold of any.


Kara, who belongs to our Director of Client Access, is a 2-year-old Doberman Pinscher who is known for her spunky personality. Kara loves to play outside and spends extra time soaking up the sunshine. Her favorite activities are playing hide and seek with treats and toys, taking long naps during the day, and absolutely LOVES to go on car rides. Kara also loves meeting new people and playing with her neighborhood furry friends. She is one of a kind and brings joy to anyone who meets her.


Tank is a 1-year-old Pitbull Terrier and another member of our Director of Client Access Brittani’s crew. He is the world’s biggest cuddle bug and loves to snuggle (he would sleep all day curled up with his favorite blanket and chew toy if he could). He enjoys walks in the neighborhood and makes a great co-pilot while on car rides. He loves to play and bask in the sun and when visitors arrive, he is the first one to greet you with a big smile and lots of tail wags. He’s a goofy guy that loves to be loved and we wouldn’t have him any other way.

Huck & Finn

The dynamic duo of Huck and Finn are a part of our Manager of Clinics Kalee’s family! How can you separate these brothers!? Huck and Finn are currently adjusting to their new role of big brothers to their new baby human brother.


Kevin is our Manager of People Operations Stephanie’s spoiled furry friend! He is a 3 year old Goldendoodle who loves EVERYONE he meets. Kevin’s favorite pastime is playing fetch. He won’t stop until his humans take his ball away! Kevin has the goofiest personality and puts a smile on the face of anybody he meets.


My name is Chester. I’m a six-year-old English Springer Spaniel and a registered therapy dog. I love it when my human takes me places to meet new people. By a simple bat of my eyes, I help my human stay healthy by getting him to take me for daily walks. Aside from brightening other’s day by doing tricks, I enjoy chasing after balls, frisbees, and birds. I just want to make the world a better place.

Chester belongs to school-based therapist Hal.
