Therapy guinea pig
Brief info

Patches joined our team in the summer of 2014 as a therapy guinea pig. She lived at the clinic and our kids loved to go visit her and say hi. She had a special way of eliciting sounds and words from our clients who were non-verbal or had limited vocabulary. She was extremely still and gentle with the kids, but with the staff, she voiced her displeasure with late meals or being left alone for too long. For a small guinea pig, she left a huge imprint on our hearts. As Patches got older, she became sick with many different health issues. When the clinic was shut down due to COVID-19, she quarantined with Ms. Vicki and her family. Sadly, her age and illness caught up with her, and she passed away in May of 2020. She will be sorely missed by all.”
