Hello my name is Sarah…
I grew up in Scotland and after graduating from the University of Dundee with a degree in Hotel and Catering Management. I wanted excitement and change, so I moved to Canada to start a new adventure with my now husband. I have spent my whole career in customer service and recently decided to add in the component of my love for animals when I joined the team here at Hollybank/Avonlea. I grew up with an assortment of little critters, from guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits and cats, so have always loved being surrounded by animals.
Outside of work I love spending time with my family, my husband Kris and my son Kieran. I love spending time in the kitchen; be it baking an assortment of goodies or whipping up new dinner recipe I’ve found, or sitting and relaxing with little crafty projects.
To Our Valued Clients,
Our top priority is to provide exceptional care to our patients while safeguarding our staff and our community. We continue to maintain our regular business hours and we are available to see you and your pets for essential veterinary health care services.
We have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and want to notify you of changes we are making at for the welfare of our staff, clients and patients. We have taken great care to implement safeguards to help reduce the spread of this virus.
Food, inventory and medication pickup:
We have been in constant contact with the suppliers and manufacturers responsible for ensuring our hospitals have sufficient supply of veterinary diets and over the counter products, and we do not anticipate any disruption to this supply. However, instances of buying large quantities of these products have strained the supply chain. We respectfully request that our clients limit their purchases of these products to immediate need plus one month’s supply to ensure all clients and patients have access to these products.
Our goal is to keep our essential services available to the communities we serve and to be there for you and your pets. Thank you for your cooperation and for doing your part in helping to keep pets and people safe. Please do not hesitate to call with questions. We anticipate our phone lines will be busier than usual and we thank you in advance for your patience!
