The House of Paws Crew
We are obsessed with pets! Our team is like family, and together, we have a common goal of keeping pets as healthy and happy as they can be. We value concise and effective communication, and we pride ourselves in our deep knowledge of animal health and our shared commitment to better care. Our hope is that our clients and patients recognize the House of Paws difference with each and every interaction.
Kim & Tracy
We are definitely obsessed with pets! We have fostered and worked with local rescue organizations and have always had a houseful of our own pets. We also have a group of friends who are all very passionate about animals. One of the friends is a veterinarian, Dr. Carol Adams, and she started out as our vet almost 15 years ago. Many of us have always encouraged her to open her own clinic; however, she wanted nothing to do with “the business” of opening a business. In early 2019, we started to seriously discuss the possibility of collaboration. After many conversations and over many months we developed a solid business plan to open a clinic where Dr. Adams could focus exclusively on her position as medical director and concentrate on direct patient care, and we would handle the business end of running the clinic. We all envision a different sort of veterinary experience for clients and patients. Personally, we have drawn on our experiences as pet owners and clients, and our goal is to provide a modern clinic that is staffed with a compassionate team of individuals who share our passion for animals. Our team is like family—we all have a common goal of keeping pets as healthy and happy as they can be! We have signed a lease on the future brick-and-mortar House of Paws Veterinary Clinic, Inc. building, and in the interim, House of Paws Veterinary Clinic is operating out of a mobile unit (aka the fetch and heal mobile) to provide services until the brick-and-mortar renovation is complete. Overall, we want to provide personalized, integrative, and reliable veterinary care for pets while also providing a modern and convenient experience for pet parents.
Dr. Carol Adams
Medical Director & Veterinarian
Dr. Adams graduated from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1992. The first 15 years of her career were spent working with large animals, primarily dairy cattle. She was also an instructor at Clemson University and locally at College of the Sequoias. Since 2007, she has worked with small animals, mostly dogs and cats, but also some pocket pets, reptiles, and just about any animal that requires veterinary assistance. She has a special interest in the disorders and surgery of brachycephalic breeds and has been fortunate enough to have Bulldogs and French Bulldogs as part of her family for the last 20 years. Most of her free time is spent caring for her Bulldogs, a Chihuahua who thinks he’s a Bulldog, two cats, two box turtles, and two desert tortoises.
