Door Greeter - Samantha
Samantha came to Olivia's House when her owner, Bonnie Lloyd, worked as our Administrative Assistant. When Bonnie decided to take a trip around the world, she asked us if we would be interested in adopting Sam. Sam has made herself right at home with the children and she enjoyed The Healing Garden of Hope more than anyone. Her ego was huge and she believed everyone was here to visit with her! Samantha crossed over the rainbow bridge after a very short battle with cancer on May 4, 2017. To say our office was sad, would be the understatement of a lifetime. We will always consider Sam as our “first Olivia’s House therapy dog” and as such, we will ‘Sammabrate' her memory always. She will stay on our website as a reminder of what every “Olivia’s House dog” should aspire to be!




Door Greeter - Hazel
Hazel has joined our staff as the newest member. She will be a trauma therapy certified dog when all is said and done. She is a yellow lab and is full of kisses. Just like Samantha, Hazel believes that everyone is at Olivia’s House to see her! One look into her big brown eyes and she has you hooked….she may just be right!
