Meet the Pets of Sova
Bailey is a 2-year-old Berniedoodle. His favorite things in the world are being with his family and riding in the truck. He also likes to chew up anything that will fit in his mouth, steal food from the family’s youngest daughter, and sneak into his parents’ bed to sleep. Along with his little brother, Colby, he is in charge of home security – even when it’s not necessary.
Chief of Staff
She is a rescue pup from Ginger’s Pet Rescue. Brooklyn loves to eat, is open to receiving treats of all kinds, enjoys playing with her toys and despises all vegetables. Her all-time favorite activities are chasing squirrels and watching birds. Brooklyn is small but mighty, and she brings a CAN DO attitude to the Sova team.
Favorite Toys: Monkey and Moosey
Chief Security Officer
Grizzly weighs about 95 pounds and is a very kind soul with a good heart. Normally very relaxed but can be counted on as a loyal Sova team member to be fiercely protective. Thinks that deer, crows and coyotes are existential threats, at least judging by the loud and threatening barking when they show up. But marauding squirrels take him over the edge. Loves peanut butter.
Favorite Toy: a beloved small stuffed brown bear
Lincoln & Mike
Lincoln and Mike are adopted brothers who love being a part of their mom’s professional life. Whether it be Lincoln attempting to run through the window to chase a squirrel or Mike not-so-politely bringing attention to the incoming mail, the boys make their presence known in ways that hopefully bring levity and joy to Sova colleagues and partners. Their rescue family includes: Humane Rescue Alliance and Rural Dog Rescue.
Favorite Toys: Anything that squeaks! Shout out to Glad Dogs Nation for repurposing used and no longer wanted/needed kids toys and donating profits in service of animal welfare initiatives.
Chief Financial Officer
Rusty is a micro-panther who lives most of her life outdoors, and periodically demands love from her humans. As a scrawny stray, she made clear that she intended to be adopted and six years later she remains the most skillful communicator in the Kadlec-Hassing family. In addition to raining down terror on the surrounding rodent communities, Rusty’s “likes” include semi-secretly joining long family walks and sleeping on the softest available blanket. Rusty’s humans both love and fear her.
Favorite Toy: Too many rodents, too little time. No toys for this gal.
Chief Executive Officer
Tyrion is a maximum mutt adopted from a member of the Austin Community College Riverbat family. A true runt, and an unlikely survivor from an accidental litter, Tyrion now spends his days in Northwest Michigan. Despite being a very small beast from the hot state of Texas, his spirit is mighty and he loves the snow. His humans suspect that when he sleeps Tyrion dreams of running The Iditarod.
Favorite Toy: “Chewy-bacca” Wookie-shaped squeaky
VP of Communications
Bingo is a loving member of our family, offering a unique combination of playfulness and Zen-like chill that is impossible to resist. He enjoys napping in beanbags in the sun, playing with his pompoms, and attempting to eat human-food. He was rescued from the Denver Cat Cafe and draws his name from the Australian hit show Bluey. Like all Sova team members, Bingo is always present, attentive, and non-judgemental.
Favorite Toy: Pom poms
Human Resources Director
Colby is a 1-year-old Havapoo. His favorite things are tormenting the family’s two youngest children, eating the head off Barbie, and hunting deer in the backyard. He also enjoys getting very dirty immediately after having a bath. He serves as Junior Security Officer alongside his big brother Bailey.
