Colby FichtelRead More
Colby joined our staff after a very brief stint as a volunteer in 2005. We needed him in a hurry and he did an outstanding job, which is consistent with his work here ever since. There are many titles besides 'Mr. Reliable' that we could give Colby, but the one that stands out would have to be the 'mother-hen' of the patients at the clinic. He devotes an inordinate amount of time tending to their needs both physically and emotionally. Patients, clients and staff are fortunate he is here for he is always willing to lend a helping hand.

Often referred to as the 'cat psychologist' of the clinic, Lisa posseses exceptional knowledge of cat behavior, much of which she has acquired through personal experience and ambition. Lisa has rescued and cared for feral cats most of her life and continually works towards her dream of sheltering exotic cats.
Brittney AppleyardRead More
Brittney became a member of our staff in the fall of 2010. Although she came with some experience, we were impressed with how quick she was to prove herself and she did it well. Her thoroughness is an asset and she often surprises us by pointing out certain details we may have overlooked. Animals are very comfortable with her as she is with them. She has become a very welcome part of our team. Her primary role here is as a veterinary technician, however she graciously helps as a receptionist when needed.
Rachel CrittendonTechnicianRead More
Rachel started at Compassion when she was in High School as a volunteer and became an official part-time member of our staff in 2011. Her fast learning ability, amiable nature and eagerness to assist helped our decision to hire her and we are sure it was a good one. She has a way with animals which is evident by watching the actions of Flipper, our resident cat, who practically leaps in her arms to be loved when she arrives.
