I'm so very sorry to hear Veronica is no longer with us. She was a very loving and kind lady who took great care of my rotties when they visited her shop many years ago for grooming. In fact, she was willing to take on my wild child named Wendy. I will never forget her smiling face or her laughter. Blessings, Elizabeth

We were heartbroken to hear of the passing of Veronica. What a special woman she was . She took care of our pups like they were her own and she would drop what she was doing and do anything for you. Veronica took in her Jake when he showed up at our door step in the middle of the night. He was infested with fleas and we called him Blue because he had one blue eye. I went to Veronica to ask if I could post a flyer in case the owner came looking for him. She willing asked me to bring him to her and she would keep him and get rid of the fleas till the owner was found. Little did we know at the time his real name was Jake just like our Jake and that’s why he came every time I yelled “Jake come”! He is the sweetest boy and found a forever home and endless love in Veronica. RIP Veronica and condolences to the entire family. We will miss her very much.

Veronica was always so kind to my dog Zeke when she groomed him. Before, he had always been afraid of groomers but once I brought him to Veronica, all his fears seemed to go away. We both are saddened at her death and for your loss. I wish God's blessings and comfort to her family and pray for you all.

I'm so sorry to hear of Veronica's passing. Such a sweet, sweet lady. We brought our 3 small furbabies to see her for nail trims. She was wonderful with them. You could clearly see how much love she had for animals and was always willing to take a new one in. Her beautiful birds too. I know the family will miss her dearly and her clients as well. She always had a smile on her face . RIP Veronica.
