Brenda Sparling, Receptionist

Brenda was born and raised in Renfrew, spending over 26 of those years working at the Renfrew Animal Hospital. She enjoys helping her husband Peter renovate their 130-year-old home. Brenda is most proud of her two sons, Kyle who lives just outside of Calgary and Nick who is attending Carleton University. Although there are no furry members of their family at the moment, Brenda feels they will know when the time is right to try and replace their beloved cat, Pumpkin, who was euthanized after 21 years of sharing her special love with the family.

Niomi was born and raised in a very small town called Barry’s Bay. She graduated from the Veterinary Assistant program in 2019 from St. Lawerence College in Kingston. She knew at a very young age she was going to be doing something to help animals. "I am very passionate about what I do, and love knowing I am able to make a difference in the lives of our fur friends. I have two very special babies of my own, George my cat with a very crazy personality and a wild attitude and Ruben a pitbull mix with a very big heart and lots of energy.
