    Gypsy Main Street

    I came to be a part of the VCA Main Street Family in December of 2011.

    When I first came to the hospital I had a broken leg and my owner relinquished me. Our doctors and staff took great care of me and repaired my leg and since that moment I became part of the family.

    I earn my keep by working as a greeter in the morning and at lunch time. If you’re ever in neighborhood please stop by I’d LOVE to meet you and have you give me more cookies!
