Sarah has lived in Rigby her whole life. She didn't grow up on a farm or live where she could have horses or cows, she grew up in the city. Even so, she has had a love for animals her whole life. She gained experience doing 4-H with rabbits and horses which she loved dearly. The other animals she grew up with were her cat Muffin and a dog Scottie. She was able to get her VERY own dog Sheila in high school, who was her very best friend and has since passed away. She is now married to a fun-loving guy (who now enjoys animals as much as she does). They have 7 cats, 4 dogs, 2 chickens, 1 hamster, and some fish. Sarah has worked at South Fork Animal Clinic since 2007. She and her husband welcomed their beautiful daughter Penelope in 2016 and she is the absolute joy of their life. We enjoy fishing, hunting, camping, dirt biking, and spending time outdoors.
Front desk receptionist. Roy has worked at South Fork for twelve of the last fourteen years in varying capacities. Constantly confused as one of the Doctors, this retired army first sergeant will always be the “ugliest girl up front”. He resides on Antelope Flats, or as most would say, “somewhere east of Ririe” with his wonderful wife, three horses, two mules, four dogs, and twelve cats. We really appreciate Roy’s humor (most of the time), experience, and attention to detail.
