Our Team

Meet the Pets of Sova


General Counsel

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 


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.
