Little Man


Hi! My name is Little Man and I started working here 6 years ago. When I came to Penn Animal, it was apparent that my services were needed……desperately… and I was hired on the spot. I’ve been completely and utterly a work-aholic ever since without a moments rest. Needless to say, the ladies couldn’t do it without me and I am here for good and never going anywhere.
If you know of anyone that needs some support staff, don’t ask for me, I’m already booked with these crazy ladies.



Hi, my name is Ceecee, short for Cecilia; meaning “the blind one”. I’m so happy to be apart of Penn Animal Hospital and boy do I love it here! I may not be the eyes of Penn Animal Hospital, but I am definitely the ears of it!! I hear everything! I guess the staff just needed another emotional supporter, since I’m a great listener! I really like my co-workers, they are very sweet & give me lots of toys. Little Man just loves me, we’re best buds. Little Man really needed me, so I was hired right away. I look forward to hearing everyone’s stories.



Hi! My name is Bunni & I am very shy but I am slowly coming out of my shell. I really like it here at Penn Animal Hosp., they feed me & talk really nice to me! It’s way better than being out in the wilderness! DQ is my cool uncle and he is my favorite( shhh!!! Don’t tell Little Man or CeeCee that, it might hurt their feelings!) I may stay at a distance but I love attention! I even started letting the staff pet me, it’s not as bad as I thought!
