“Soon after rescuing our puppy we had to unexpectedly leave town and we turned to Thorn Creek to watch our little Linus. While we were inevitably stressed having to leave him, TCK went above and beyond to make sure our newest family member was taken care of. In the end Linus didn't want to leave! We will never use anyone else.”
