Brenna

Vet Assistant

Hi, my name is Brenna. You’ll see me occasionally at work because I’m a full time college student with the goal of becoming a veterinarian. When I'm not working or at school I love to spend time relaxing in a hammock with my fur baby Bella. When there’s more free time I like to spend it with friends and family or do some outdoor stuff like mountain biking, camping, or kayaking.

Missy

Receptionist

Hello, my name is Missy. I have 6 dogs at home that are my children and hundreds of pups and animals that I love caring for at OSAH. I have an obsession and a huge place in my heart for those brachycephalic breeds. I can't seem to get enough of their smushed faces and snorts. I'm sure most of you know or have heard of our special needs Frenchie and spokes-pup, Dinky Doodle. I recently adopted this special girl  from OSAH which Dr. Vargas rescued and cared for until she found her forever home. She’s now part of our smushed face pack. I’ve learned so much from Dinky with her resilience with life itself and love for others. She doesn’t let her disability ever get in her way. I must say I am the lucky one....she found and adopted me.
