Bianca Pastrana, Receptionist
Hi, my name is Bianca. Growing up, I've always had a passion for animals. From wanting to be a zoo keeper to a marine biologist, working with animals is something I was born to do. I've always had animals growing up from dogs and cat to turtles and fish. Currently, I have two dogs and a cat. Leo being a Siberian husky, he keeps me on my toes. Lilah being a mixed breed, she keeps me warm at night with cuddles. Maggie being the domestic short hair who always wants to eat. I hope to pursue a career with animal, whatever that may be.

Hello, my name is Desiree and I have worked professionally in the animal industry for over five years now. Creatures big and small have always played a important role in my life and my passion for working with them continues to grow. Currently, I share my home with three rambunctious border collies who are my world. They may drive me nuts sometimes, but I wouldn't trade them for anything.
