Staley Stice 2017Staley Stice

My name is Staley Stice.  I graduated from Sabine High School in 2016. I plan to attend Kilgore College and then transfer to Texas Tech in Lubbock to become a Labor and Delivery Nurse.  I had been working on the kennel staff, but recently changed things up and have been moved to the reception staff. It’s great to get to meet all the clients and all the patients when they come in. I enjoy spending time with family and friends.  I love going to the lake.  We have 14 goats, 3 dogs, a cat and many chickens.
