Used by a breeder until she was considered too old, then tossed out of his vehicle on Highway 400 like trash, Mavis never knew love. Until now. Welcome to the life you always deserved, Mavis! Congratulations on your new home and family. We’re all rooting for you!
Dr. Phil Good, owner of Town & Country Veterinary Clinic, received his Bachelor of Science with highest honors in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech in 2006. Phil finally came to his senses, realizing he’d much rather work with animals than in a chemical plant. Dr. Good obtained his doctorate in veterinary medicine from UGA in 2011.

Here is Newton (former member) and his border collie big brother, Bally. We adopted Newton (or did he adopt us?) three years ago. He’s a real clown and not a day goes by that he doesn’t share his cuteness with us! -Kim Koran
