Wanting people to focus on dogs based on personality instead of breed, the shelter came up with a fun way to showcase their dogs’ personalities — using Harry Potter.
HIGHLY recommend Blue Pearl! My little guy, Cody has had four surgeries with Dr. Laura Hinton at Blue Pearl. Two ACL surgeries, one plasma cell tumor removal in his mouth and has recently had his anal glands removed. Dr. Hinton always explains the procedure, the risks and rewards as well as all recovery expectations. Not to mention an over the top talented surgeon!!! She came highly recommended by Cody's primary doctor, Dr. Will Grimley of Village Vet. The front desk staff at Blue Pearl is extremely welcoming and always makes us feel at home! Two technicians need to be mentioned...Kaitlin and Dasska (sp?) they are super!!! They both make Cody feel like he's seen a familiar friend...talk to him, hold him like a baby (like me!!) When Cody has had an overnight stay...I can call any hour of the night and always get a friendly voice on the other side that can give me details on how he's doing, when he ate, when he went out to go potty, etc. (even when I call every hour!!!) Since Cody has never been crated until his surgeries here, I was apprehensive on his overnight recovery stays...but the staff actually rock him in a rocker and give him plenty of big hugs and a lot of LOVE!!!!!
