Carissa comes from right here in Boise, graduating from Timberline High School. She joined our boarding facility team in October, 2016. She has been a wonderful addition and takes pride in caring for our furry friends. Carissa is also training to help out at the veterinary clinic. She has always wanted to work with animals and is ready and willing to learn new things and is excited at the skills and knowledge that she will acquire with both positions. She is always willing to jump in and help wherever needed.
Carissa has always had a passion for working with animals. Sassy, a Mcnab/Border Collie mix is her beloved dog as well as a special project. Sassy is a rescue dog and had extreme high anxiety. Carissa has patiently worked with training and socializing her as well as teaching her to be calm around large animals like horses. Sassy is still shy, but has come a long way due to Carissa’s patience and love. Carissa also loves working with horses and has been riding since she was a little girl. She also enjoys bird hunting with her brother as well as helping friends with branding.
