Hi! My name is Blanca Taylor. A year ago I moved back to California after graduating in Veterinary Assisting from Carrington College in Portland, Or.

Linda Adams – Customer Care Representative
I have been in the veterinary medical field as a receptionist and office manager for over 25 years. It has been my privilege to have known and assisted in the care of so many wonderful kittens, cats, puppies and dogs through their entire lives and formed bonds with their loving owners that treat them like the family members they are. My menagerie of three dogs, one cat, a cockatiel, two California desert tortoises and an aquarium full of fish share my home with me in La Crescenta. One day I hope to have a senior feline-canine day care where senior pets can enjoy special attention and receive the extra care they may require while their family members are away at work.
I was born and raised in Glendale. I attended Glendale community college majoring in art. I have a mini lop rabbit named Oreo and a pit mix named Coco. My hobbies that I enjoy are working out and playing video games.
My name is America I’ve been working at Big Tujunga now for about 3 years. My hobbies include reading, cooking, and playing video games. I have two dogs named Conchita and Kobe and two cats named Mee and Guero. I’m currently in school and in the works on transferring to become a veterinarian.
