  • Emily
    Veterinary Technician

She left for a little over a year to improve her skills as a surgery technician at WestVet. She came back to Companions because she missed building relationships with pet owners and being able to follow up with her patients as they progressed through care and recovery.

She rafts, hikes, backpacks, and she started her own business making bandanas and toys for animals called Critters Harmony.

  • Fletcher
    Mascot/Good Boy
    Fletcher was adopted in 2013 from the Wood River Valley Animal Shelter in Hailey, Idaho. Dr. Powell thinks he is about 5 years old now, although she secretly hopes he will never age. He is one of those few dogs that can smile, and when he does, it wrinkles up his nose and makes him sneeze - it's very funny and endearing. He's always been a sweet and mellow guy. Not knowing his background, she submitted a Royal Canin Witness genetic profile which revealed that Fletcher is a mix of Border Collie, Australian Shepherd, and Tibetan Terrier. It follows, as he is a good working dog. He loves to sit up in the lobby and watch people come and go, and is becoming increasingly confident in asking for treats from strangers. He's generally pretty quiet at work, but will come and grunt or nudge us at our desks if he wants to be given affection. Outside of work, he loves to go for walks with his dog friends and keep them in line with his mad herding skills.
