MEET KEVIN and SUZI! They are both very familiar faces at Northwest Animal Hospital – Kevin has been our boarding kennel manager since 1995 and Suzi has been our assistant kennel manager since 2000. Together they are the boarding dream team and care immensely about the animals in their care!
They share their home with 4 pets – 2 cats (Alister and Boris) and 2 dogs (Clarice and Yara). In their spare time they watch a lot of movies, especially horror movies, and they also spend a lot of time volunteering at film festivals. They also enjoy spending time together taking their tiny dogs for walks.
Kevin’s favorite part of his job is interacting with the animals in boarding and in doggy day care. He gets a lot of job satisfaction out of caring for and monitoring the older and sicker animals while they are in our care. Suzi’s favorite part of the job is taking care of all the animals, especially the animals with special needs. She also loves learning about all the different dog breeds.
Something that not many people know about Kevin was that he used to be in a professional breakdance group that opened for small bands and fashion shows. In 1985 they even won the Colorado State Championship! Ask Kevin if you want to know the name of his breakdance group. Something that not many people know about Suzi is that when earning her Associate’s Degree in Zookeeping, she did an externship at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. She says it was one of the best times in her life!
MEET LYLE! Lyle was brought on as a kennel attendant at Northwest in May of 2014. His favorite part of his job is getting to love on all the pets that come to visit us at our boarding kennel and doggy daycare. At home he has two domestic short hair kitties, Gilliam and Suzuka, who are littermates. Both were adopted from Northwest Animal Hospital when they were 3 months old back in 2009. In his spare time Lyle enjoys amateur tent making, wood working, leather crafting, and blacksmithing. Some things that most people do not know about Lyle are that he LOVES kittens, spiders scare him, and he is currently learning to play the guitar!
