Dr. Kim PetersonDVM | Owner
Dr. Peterson has had a passion for animals all her life. She has owned a veterinary clinic in the area for 17 years but wanted to provide a stress-free boarding option in the area and hence Sweet Paws. She, like many people, want to take their pets with them when they travel but knows that it is not always an option. Growing up in Minnesota and with a love of nature, when the Sweet Paws property became available she could not resist wanting to put her thoughts to work. Being able to share the beautiful facility and acres of Sweet Paws Retreat with the happy dog & cat guests is very rewarding especially seeing their wagging tails and purring faces.
Allycen has always loved and respected animals. She grew up in northern California with multiple dogs, cats, and birds. After attending Sierra College and studying abroad in Italy she received Associated degrees in Kinesiology/ Sports Medicine, Small Business Management, Liberal Arts, and Fashion Design & Merchandising. She then transferred and graduated with a BA from University of Hawaii in 2013, majoring in Studio Arts, with a minor in Business. She was a junior personal trainer, and loves fitness and being active. Her goal is to create a comfortable and relaxing experience for the animals visiting Sweet Paws Retreat where every visitor feels like family.
