Kennel AssistantTrish Grimm
Trish began her career at VCA Old Marple twenty years ago. She has been the Kennel Manager for the last ten years. Trish is the friendly face your pets is greeted by when they are dropped off for a stay with us.
In her spare time Trish enjoys spending time with her family and her two dogs.
Why I do what I do: From the time I was little, everyone knew I would work with animals. I have been at VCA Old Marple for 23years now and can not imagine doing anything else. I have rescued everything from pigeons to dogs. I even had a potbelly pig named Spam. I enjoy training my dog Orlaith and taking her for walks at the park.
Special Note: Trish's passion is making sure our boarders have a home away from home and she always makes sure that they receive topnotch care and attention. We feel good knowing Trish is on the scene.
School: Grooming Academy
Amin was born and raised in South Philadelphia and now resides there with his wife Natasha and their children along with them are his two dogs Caine and Lola. Amin graduated from South Philadelphia High School and proceeded on to college majoring in Ultrasound Diagnostics and received his certification as a medical assistant. He then decided to take a different avenue with his love for animals and started as a bather at a local grooming salon and then attended the grooming academy to become a groomer.
Why I do what I do: I just enjoy matching every pets haircut with their personality and enjoy making a pet look and feel beautiful. If they look good they feel good. Your pet is also my pet when in my care and I will treat each one like my own.
Special Note: Our clients asked for a groomer for many years and we finally decided that it was finally time with the new changes that we're making at VCA Old Marple Animal Hospital. What we didn't expect is to come across someone that was so caring and compassionate about what they do and how every pet is a reflection on him and how he looks at it.
