Very calm, gentle, and friendly, she was eventually adopted and taken [...]

My Job as SPA Receptionist


By Marlen Mejia “I have five puppies that I cannot keep.” “I found six kittens on the road.” Upon entering the SPA, these are the welcome calls I receive.

Guilty! We grew up!


By Jayn Corral “We didn’t mean to do it. It just happened. We grew up!

Reflections on Nine Years as an SPA Dogwalker

Teenie and Bailey

By Teenie Gibson Someone asked me once which SPA dog was my most favorite. It’s like asking a mother which is her favorite child.
