MELINA COLE

RVT

Happy to be back home in the prairies, Melina completed the Animal Health Technology program at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, having graduated in 2022. As a new technician, she is eager to continue learning from her peers and is determined to do the best she can for each animal she meets, from the biggest Bernese to the cutest kitten, even rescuing spiders from the break room!

During the summer she likes being out and about, longboarding with friends, growing food in the backyard, or throwing herself into the wilderness to go backpacking. In the colder months, when she’s not snowboarding, she’s likely sketching or painting while watching streamers game, her rescue cat Pumpkin never too far away.

CASSIDY ONIONS

Hi, I’m Cassidy! I have worked with dogs for many years at various daycares/kennels throughout the city. I have 2 dogs of my own – a spunky Boxer Catahoula cross, and an anxious Staffordshire Terrier cross. I am also a step-mom to a wonderful 6-year-old boy.

In my spare time, I like to go camping, hiking, and of course watch Netflix. I am also into photography. I love capturing those perfect moments and memories.

I am beyond grateful to continue working with animals and helping them be as comfortable as they can while visiting our clinic. I look forward to meeting each and every one of them!
