Shelly worked with us in the early 1990's, left for a few years to focus on her family, and then rejoined our staff in 2002. Shelly is most famous for looking for the next rescued dog that she can find a fur ever home for by visiting Pet Finder online, area shelters and the dog warden. If you're looking for a new canine (or even feline) addition, Shelly is the one to help you find that perfect match. When not working at Edenwood, Shelly loves to get caught up in a great book (if she can find the time!) and she is very involved with her church. Shelly lives just outside of Bloomville, with her husband Greg and their daughter Abby. She enjoys spending time with their adult children and their 4 grandchildren. Of course there are a few four-legged kids, Bailey- a Beagle, Zoey- a Pit Bull, Chaplin and Weiser are the felines who rule the roost! They are all rescues!!!!

Kathy is in charge of our kennel and while your pet is on vacation here with us, she will make sure your furry family member is very well taken care of. You will also see Kathy in the front office. Kathy is fun, enthusiastic and a great person to work with.

Our Clinic Cats

Edenwood Veterinary Clinic - Tiffin OH- Clinic cat Jazzie


Jazzie is our female cat that just appeared one day in the woods behind the Clinic in 2004. She was young but after a little TLC, Jazzie knew she had found her new home. She is known to climb right up on the lap of our clients, particularly those who don't like cats! Jazzie is a typical cat that only wants attention on her terms and she will let you know when she's done. You may notice that Jazzie's tail is a little short- she had to have it amputated after we discovered the tip of her tail was injured and bleeding. Jazzie loves to drink straight from the faucet, especially the water faucet in our surgery suite - which she can turn on (and off) all by herself! Most of the time she is found sleeping in a drawer in the office.



Edenwood Veterinary Clinic - Tiffin OH- Clinic cat Smalls


Mocha is the furriest of our family of felines who reside at Edenwood Veterinary Clinic. Mocha fit right into the busy life of a vet clinic. She could care less about the other cats or any of the animals that come and go through our doors. Mocha, with her beautiful blue eyes, keeps watch on everything that goes on, from the countertop. She helped to re-arrange the supplies inside a cupboard so many times that we gave up and moved the supplies so she can have that shelf all to herself.


Hugs is the latest addition to our feline family, making Edenwood his home in early 2019. He never lets having only 3 legs slow him down one bit, he gets into everything! We are adjusting to having such a youngster running in the halls. You will see Hugs playing with his toys or trying to visit with any dog that is kind enough to let him say hello. We have decided that he thinks he is really a dog.
