Ashley Acosta,
Vet Technician

My name is Ashley Acosta and I have worked as a veterinary technician for Loving Care Pet Hospital since June 2017. I've loved animals since my childhood and my goal is to be able to care for them with nothing but compassion and understanding. I'm a very loving, caring and kind person, who enjoys the outdoors and helping others. I hope to see you and your furry loved one in our clinic doing great.

CC, Clinic Cat #1

My name is CC and I have been the official Clinic Cat for Loving Care since July 2003 when I was just 6 weeks old. I enjoy sleeping most of the day, but you will sometimes catch me in the rooms comforting new patients and their owners. My hobbies include, sunbathing in the windows, searching for treats, and rummaging around in women's purses.

Clinic Cat #2

My name is Ralph and I am the official door greeter for Loving Care Pet Hospital. I have been a team member since July 2014, when the Hospital Administrator found me causing trouble on the streets. She took me in, taught me manners, and gave me a job. Now that I am domesticated, I enjoy roaming the halls and visiting hospitalized patients, making sure the staff stays in line, and begging for a yummy treat. While I’ve mainly giving up the street life, I still enjoy the occasional cat-nip from time to time, but the manager says it’s unacceptable to do it during hospital hours.
