I live in the South Valley and have worked at Rio Bravo for 30+ years. I have always loved animals and have had many of them. I enjoy getting to know the animals as well as the people who bring them in, especially the people who have been coming here at least as long as I have worked here. I also enjoy working with the everyone at Rio Bravo. They are a wonderful, caring group of people. I have worked at Rio Bravo for 23 years. Everyone is patient and kind with each other and with the animals. I love the people I work with; we all pitch in to get the job done.
