Mrs. Carol

She considers it a privilege to be entrusted with the furry family members of the Dadeville area and a blessing to be a part of the lives of so many families, watching children and puppies grow up. She is available by appointment Monday-Thursday.

Being a part of the DAC family gives the opportunity to care for pets and their people, says Carol, because a clean pet is healthier, happier, and more huggable!
