Clinic Cat

Meow!  Woody came to us in March of 2013 by way of some wonderful clients who rescued him.  Boy-howdy did this hospital need a clinic kitty!  Woody is a sweet maine coon mix who lost his leg in an accident but while he is a tri-pod kitty that doesn’t slow him down a lick!  He has become the love of all our lives (don’t tell our home fur babies!) and we couldn’t imagine a lunch break or meeting without his input.  You have only to look into his gorgeous green eyes to see why we are helpless to his charms.  Woody hangs out mostly in the office area and break room upstairs with our practice manager, where he is especially helpful with the paperwork!


Practice Manager

Taylor’s mom knew she was in trouble when at the age of three Taylor found and brought home an Irish Wolf Hound. “Can we keep him?” were probably her first words. Love and compassion for animals fueled her desire to foster and care for every stray that entered her life. Today as Practice Manager for CVAC, Taylor gets to blend her two passions, pets and people, into one amazing career.

At home, along with her husband and son, Taylor has a very spoiled cat affectionately known as “Ms Thang”, a cohort of small animals and fish and an African Spur tortoise named Beaches. When not at work, you can find Taylor out enjoying this amazing state by biking, hiking, camping, running and fishing. In addition, she volunteers in our community and at her church.

Linda moved to Alaska sight unseen in 1993 and knew she had found the place to settle down and raise her family. Linda worked in a variety of positions while her children were growing up; always looking to combine her love of animals and nature with her commitment to increasing awareness and understanding of wildlife and the protection of our wilderness. When Linda is not busy helping our clients and their pets at the front desk, she loves to spend time with her family, play her guitar and root for her favorite sports team (Go Cubs!).  We can also add walking her dog to her list of favorite activities as Linda recently rescued a mini dachshund/chihuahua mix named Tikka.  While the two are still getting to know each other, Linda is already wondering: who rescued who?

From riding his neighbor’s horses, to the many days of dog sitting, to feeding and raising chickens, animals have always been in his life.Joel’s pets are a Spaniel Mix named Ember, and Rescued Terrier Mix named Gizmo. Gizmo is a bundle of pure uniqueness and is always ready to explore new things along with his sister Ember.
