Frank - Greeter

Frank is a kitty originally rescued from the streets by a volunteer at Paradise Animal Rescue. He came to live at Thorpe Animal Hospital in fall of 2006 after a yearlong stay at the shelter. He was very shy and scared of people for a long time, but now he is the king of his own castle. You will surely see him almost every time you stop by. He is usually on top of his cat tower bird watching in his very own garden.


Caroline is a female tabby cat who was also originally rescued from the streets by a volunteer of Paradise Animal Rescue. She came to live at Thorpe Animal Hospital in fall of 2006 after a two yearlong stay at the shelter. She is still very shy and spends most of her time curled up in her very own recliner chair in the office supervising the staff. But, if you keep your eyes open you may see her on occasion.
