Complaint Department


Jelly Bean is in charge of our complaint department.  We strive hard at Animal House Veterinary Hospital and Grooming Salon to make everyone happy!  Fortunately we rarely need Jelly Bean's service.  So, to be useful, he is often found holding down the counter in our reception area.  He is so still he is often mistaken for a stuffed animal and has been known to startle a few clients when he moves! 

Here he has his happy face on.  He will paw at you and demand to be pet and noticed for his obvious beauty and charm!

Drama Queen


Olivia is usually at the front desk and tries to make our clients feel at home by jumping in their laps when they sit down.  Of course, she has also been known to climb into people's purses or bags if you leave them unattended!!!

She is a great greeter but a VERY poor patient.  If she ever needs her nails trimmed or medication, (as all of our pets do from time to time), she will thrash and scream and carry on.  She is a good reminder of how our clients feel when they find their pets uncooperative at home!

Lawn and Garden Maintenance


Leroy, Mr. Jenkins and Shanaynay are the goats that were hired to maintain the acre of land behind the veterinary hospital.  When Dr. Sherry purchased the veterinary hospital in 2005, the entire acre of land was overgrown.  Since the goats were hired, yep, that's right, its still overgrown!!!  They are the biggest group of deadbeat employees you may ever want to meet.  Rather than do their work and fill their bellies, they stand around begging for goat chow and granola bars.  They have been known to escape their pen and walk onto the front porch of the Animal House.  Clients have politely informed us .."Ummm, did you know you have goats on your porch"?!  The bad goats know they will get grain to lure them back to their pen.  They are lazy and conniving!

Shanaynay up a tree at Animal House Veterinary Hospital and Grooming SalonI must say, I do respect their positive attitude.

Recently, a wicked storm blew over a tree,

smashing one of their houses. 

Their response, "If your tree blows over,  climb it!!!!" 

After all, every cloud has a silver lining if you only look for it!!


Fred and Ethel

Everyone we would like to introduce new members of Animal House; Fred and Ethel. They like to visit us at the window and door. Teasing the cats and making a mess in our parking lot with leaves from the trees. They also enjoy entertaining the goat's by taking their food, and disrupting the birds at the feeder. They showed us where they spend most of their time on a rainy day. 

Suzy Q 

Suzy came to us through Jefferson County Animal Control with a prolapsed rectum. Suzy had to have several surgeries in order to fix the prolapse. Over the time frame that she was with us; we fell in love with her. Suzy is a joy to have around the hospital. She likes to run from one end of the hospital to the other. Suzy is a joy to have around and we are lucky to have her. 


Gabby is our grooming cat. She makes sure that greets each and everyone of the patients that arrives. She likes to watch our furry friends get groomed. Gabby likes to watch out the window and tell everyone "hi" before they even reach the door. We love having her as a family member here at Animal House/ Happy Tails Grooming. 

Meet our new addition to Animal House; our little goats. They are a handful and trouble makers at times. They enjoy climbing on their new toys outside and climbing on fallen trees. They are a great addition to our little goat family. Our two older goats are happy to have some company.
