Arnold aka “Arney” Bruce- Patient Liaison

Arney Bruce arrived at our clinic in 2016 after being found on Paige’s drive into work one day. He was sitting in the middle of Arney’s Mount Road in Pemberton, NJ. He was only a few weeks old and had a very bad upper respiratory infection that if he was left on his own, he would not survive. So Paige scooped him up and onto his new life they went. The entire gang welcomed him with open arms. He has such a playful and sometimes mischievous personality. Arney has a heart of gold and has no fear of animals. He is always trying to be their friend and he makes sure he welcomes every patient while comforting them during their appointments. When he isn’t on the job, he enjoys finding the coziest box to climb in, knocking anything off a counter, and running away with anything plastic.

Stephen aka “Stevie” Joseph- Front Desk Supervisor

Stevie joined our team in 2017 when he was brought in by Trenton Animal Control for what appeared to be an injured leg. Sadly, it turned out that he had a fractured pelvis. So of course Dr. Samet decided that not only did Stevie need to stay with us to recover, but he also needed to forever stay with us so that Arney had a side kick. Now a days, no injury will slow Stevie down. When he isn’t perched on the front desk keeping his eye on everything going on, you can find him running laps around the clinic demanding more wet food or a lap to cuddle on.
