Raava (rhymes with "lava") is our furry companion. She is a Miniature Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle mix rescued from Louisville Metro Animal Services after being relinquished by her previous owner. She doesn't shed, but she has been known to leave her toys scattered around on occasion.
If you aren't comfortable with pets or dogs please let the office staff know so we can make sure Raava is on break when you come to visit.
