Hi! Holly here! I love animals. I’ve been around animals my whole life. I have 3 children and I’ve married for 17 years and together with our family on the compound, we raise cows, pigs, chickens, peacocks, rabbits, dogs, and cats on our 45 archer farmer. I’ve lived in Florida my whole life and the sunshine makes me get up every morning. It’s the best life ever! I couldn’t dream of another place to raise my kids and pets! If I could have a horse :-)! I love helping the animals who board and are in the kennel. They need some tender love and care and it’s a joy to make them feel safe and comfortable in their home away from home.

Greetings! I’m Michele. I have been in Veterinary Medicine since 2005 years. I love this industry! Caring for pets and being apart of their healing is the highlight of my career. I have a wonderful 7-year-old daughter who believes she will be president of the United States ?! I have two of the best cats in the world, Lilly and Stella. They both think they are human. Check out our website for pictures of their latest antics.


Veterinary Technician

Hello Everyone! I’m a technician here at HCO and I’ve been working in the veterinary industry since 2013. As anyone would guess I love animals, especially the scaly and feathery kind, and I am extremely passionate about wildlife conservation. I am currently in school for Wildlife Biology and conservation and I hope to one day spread awareness of preserving our planet. Until then I’ll be caring for your pets with a smile. I own a horse named Brave, 3 dogs, a bird, a mischievous little rabbit named Miso, and a whole assortment of reptiles. They’re all my babies! ALSO, I REALLY LOVE CROCODILES! “
