Ameera, is the hospital manager for Bijou animal Hospital. She has worked(or lack of) for Bijou since 2005. She came to us from the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region from a very abusive home. Bijou repaired a broken jaw, broken leg and head injury. After recovering in a foster home, Bijou staff and clients knew that Ameera would make a great addition to our family and made Bijou her forever home. She was originally named Princess from the Humane Society but changed her name to Ameera (which means Princess in Arabic) when she came to Bijou.
She is most playful in the mornings and then usually lays around and gives orders the rest of the day. She has all of us trained and working efficiently. We can all agree that she is the best boss ever.

Outside of work Missy loves spending time with her family, friends, and her array of fur babies. She enjoys gathering with her friends and family, and loves planning the party.
