April’s Pet of the Month goes to Frank (Sinatra)! Frank is known to VSS staff as the ‘Fun Coordinator’. When staff worked in office (pre-Covid), Frank would come in and greet everyone, sleep under desks, and show his sweet face if someone was eating hoping to get some yummy scraps. Most importantly, he has always provided “therapy” and support to staff with the difficult work that we do. There’s nothing like a good cuddle session with Frank to put a smile on your face. 

Frank came from the streets of Bakersfield, CA to The NOAH Center by van with a bunch of chihuahuas before he found his forever home, where he is treated like the king that he is. We’re not 100% sure, but we’re told Frank is Schnauzer and Jack Russell. One thing we are certain of, Frank is 100% handsome and PAWsome. 

Frank loves to sit on feet, go for car rides, and take his daily walks. He loves a good grilled steak (or chicken), and to be pet and loved. If you stop petting him he will give you a good nudge with his nose or gently paw you. If he thinks you’re leaving the house without him, he will stop what he’s doing (even eating) to make sure you don’t leave him. This is what we like to call FOMO, fear of missing out. 

Everyone loves Frank. He’s pretty infamous around here and is always asked about. He is one of a kind, loyal, easy going, and rocks a rad mohawk. We’re not quite sure what we would do without Frank as he is simply THE best.
