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 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 11 cats, 7 dogs, chickens, ducks, and horses. Sarah has worked at South Fork Animal Clinic since 2007. She feels “this is the best job ever!” She and her husband enjoy fishing , hunting , camping 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.
