Mandy - Lead Receptionist


Mandy was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and has lived in Jacksonville off and on throughout the last 15 years. She has enjoyed getting to know all of our new clients and their fur babies and working with such a great team of people who truly care! In her free time, she enjoys live music, movies, art, antique shopping, traveling, finding the best tacos in the city, coffee, true crime, cuddling with her 3 cats and hugging any Golden Retriever I can find!


Juanita - Receptionist


Juanita has always felt a special connection to animals. She has 2 dogs and 2 cats of her own who she loves immensely. Keiko (Juanita’s niece in the picture) is the newest addition to the family. Juanita’s favorite pastime when she’s not loving all over your fur babies that come in, is to cuddle and watch TV with all 4 of her fur babies. Cat naps for the win!

Tricia - Veterinary Assistant


Tricia is a lifelong Jacksonville native who’s in the process of moving to 9.3 acres in Bradford county and plans to sneak as many animals in as possible before her husband realizes.
