Nikki shares her home with Cob, a 5 year old Golden Retriever rescued at EVS after he ate corn on the cob. He required emergency surgery which took over 5 feet of intestines from him. Threads is her 8 year old cat who she rescued from PetVet where she worked. He required emergency surgery to remove 9 feet of thread from his intestines. She rescued 2-week old kitten, Lefty, from her job in New Jersey. He was in a shoe box with most of his left front leg missing and she convinced the vet to do surgery. Lefty is now 8 years old!
