Lexi was born and raised in a very small town in southern Illinois. It was there that she discovered her passion for animals at a very young age. When she turned 15, she started working at an animal hospital and has been employed in the veterinary field ever since. Her household consists of 3 dogs- Ella, Bandit and Bullet, a rescue kitten named Zombie, 2 axolots- Oliver and Shadow, a rabbit named Moose, 2 guinea pigs, and a hamster named Chip. In her rare moments of free time, she enjoys reading and spending time outside playing with her dogs. Lexi and her husband Collin enjoy spending as much time together with their numerous 4- legged family. She is a little out- numbered, but wouldn't change it for anything. Lexi also takes in the occasional wild baby animal to feed until it can go back into the wild, or to one of our local re-habbers. (No one else ever volunteers for that job.)
Shelly has been working at Prairie Oak since April of 2000. During that time, she and her husband Jonathan have had a multitude of pets. They currently have 2 dogs: Nitro, a Weimaraner/Boxer mix and Jada, a black Lab pup, and 4 cats: Morton, Phoenix, Olivia, and Boomer. One of Shelly's favorite past times is travelling- she loves going down to the Ozarks with her husband and dogs to spend as much time on their boat as possible.
