Valerie Snyder
As owner of the Animal Inn I would like to invite you to visit us and tour the kennel.  My husband and I are life long animal lovers and share our lives with one doberman, two horses, one mule and two parrots.  I was an accountant for twenty years and decided I wanted to work with animals as my "second" career.  After much planning we opened the Animal Inn in March of 2000.  I am very lucky to have a job I love. 


Cindy has been a valued employee of the Animal Inn since 2004.  Cindy has three rescue dogs (Katie, Jackson & Cletus) and a rescue cat (Monty).  Cindy has trained and fostered many dogs in her life and has volunteered in animal shelters in St. Louis and Columbia City.  Cindy is a caring and dedicated employee.


Jamie has worked for the Animal Inn since June of 2009.  Jamie worked for four years at Line Street Vet in Columbia City before leaving to pursue a degree in nursing at IPFW. Jamie is an enthusiatic member of our staff who loves working with all of our animal guests.
