Happy New Year!! I wish you and your fur babies a very happy, healthy 2017!


I found her when I went on a critical distress call in Chase expecting to have to euthanize her but despite having a badly broken leg she was a sweet, feisty 8 week old kitten. I had to amputate her left hind leg as it was healing very badly but she gets around really well and is the alpha of the team bossing the others around.

Arrow & Runty

They are sisters and very close. I was fostering 9 kittens after someone couldn’t care for them and threatened to dump them outside in December in Kamloops. Their siblings were spayed and neutered before them and they ended up staying with me. They are very shy but sweet girls.


Koala in her Angel costume.
She was dumped at the SPCA in Kamloops as a 2 week old kitten and she was so badly dehydrated and sick that the there was discussion of euthanizing here but luckily a tech got an IV catheter in and she spent the night in my bathtub on fluids. She had a few seizures and is a very ‘special’ cat but loves her life and her family.


Oreo in his Halloween pumpkin outfit.
He was found in a box as a kitten in Grenada and ended up with me after nobody else would take him. He is very happy to be a Canadian cat now as he had asthma in Grenada but not here. He is the only boy cat and the oldest and he likes to think he is in charge.


Chocolate Chip

Vanilla Bean


We rescued these llamas from a couple that could not take care of them anymore. Tabitha is Pancake’s mom. Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean are best friends. They all like to hang out by our business sign to help out with advertising and like to be hand fed treats and weeds thrown out of the garden.


This is probably the best vet in BC, she is so good with our animals. Our dog Cici loves her to death… our dog is more excited to see her than any of our family members…. I would recommend her to everyone who has any animal…. NO stress on the animals or the humans…

Steph is the best. We met Steph when she worked in Lake Country. We were very impressed with her. She is very compassionate and so good with our pets. Recently Steph came to our home to help us say good bye to Lucky. This made it so much better for all of us. We could even see the love she had for our little old man. Thank you for being the best vet we have ever met.

Dr. Royston is the first vet in 13years that our dog has not been afraid of! She is so compassionate, professional and practical. I highly recommend Dr. Royston.
