Thanks to Tasha's Fund, a fund held by E.G.A.H. that helps injured and orphaned strays, LaLa was nursed back to health and has become a full-fledged staff member.

Client ServiceChaplan Van Riper
Chappie came to VCA Elk Grove in 1996 as a weaning baby cockatiel. He had broken his leg by flying into a ceiling fan. Dr. Van Riper fixed his leg and he has been a member of our VCA family ever since. He is now our most senior mascot at 18 years old. Besides singing in the sun and occasionally being a grumpy old man, Chappie spends his days wanting to interact with his “flock”, which is all of the staff at VCA Elk Grove Animal Hospital (although his “mom” will forever be Dr. Van Riper).
