Unexpected Love
 Posted: 04/18/18 9:57 AM by Paula Church

As much as we hate to admit it, most of us have a dog or cat bias. Maybe a few of you have a passion for both, but when given the opportunity to ask large groups if they are dog or cat people, it is always overwhelmingly one or the other. So here I am, a dog person with a history of fostering - wait for it - kittens! Yep. I am that person.

Finding A Purpose
 Posted: 07/06/17 9:51 PM by Dr. Karen Cooley


I have wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as I can remember. I did not plan on or envision myself here at Greenville County Animal Care, though.  I always dreamed of owning my own practice one day, and had my eye set on that for the first 10 years of practice.
