This month, we feature “George,” an American fox hound and “Phoebe,” an Italian cat. George and Phoebe belong to Rachelle “Shelly” Mozena and her partner, Vicki Onus. Both Rachelle and Vicki work for Replacements, Ltd. and both started in 2001. Rachelle is a part of our customer service team and Vicki is a hollowware specialist.
George was abandoned outside a post office near Replacements, Ltd. A Replacements staff member rescued George and brought him to work, in hopes of finding him a good home. Vicki met the fox hound and fell in love with him. As soon as she saw him, Vicki declared that his name should be George! Both Rachelle and Vicki say that George is the biggest lap dog that you will ever meet. He is well behaved and loves playing.
The most recent addition to Rachelle and Vicki’s family is Phoebe. This adorable cat was also rescued by a Replacements worker. Rachelle was never a “cat person.” With a little nudging from Vicki and the pleading look on Phoebe’s face, Rachelle decided to adopt the cat. Rachelle says that she is still not a “cat person” but is definitely now a “Phoebe person.” Phoebe is an Italian cat and, quite naturally, loves eating pasta! She also loves playing.
When asked what they liked most about Replacements pet-friendly policy, Vicki and Rachelle had this to say, “We love being able to bring our pets to work. They put smiles on so many faces, and we love the reaction of our customers when they first see the well behaved pets throughout the building.”
