Julia "Jules" Fletcher

I have been in the veterinary industry since 1997. My passion to connect with animals started at a young age. You have likely met me before if you have been a client at, St. Margaret's Bay Animal Hospital, Wyse Road Animal Hospital, Woodbury Animal Hospital, or one of the Ainslie Clinics- Fairview Animal Hospital, Halifax Veterinary Hospital, & Spryfield Animal Hospital.

I was honoured to be a college instructor of the Veterinary Hospital Assistant and Veterinary Assistant programs for the past six years.


Now I am ready to bring the love and knowledge I have gained over the past twenty years to the community, you, & your pup(s).

Jorja Ruby Foxx

Meet Miss Jorja! She was adopted from the Animal Rescue Coalition in July of 2012. She is an original "Elsie" DeBay (Truro, NS) rescue pup, for those who were lucky enough to know Elsie, she was one of a kind.


Jorja was loved & fostered by Grace Smith-Weatherbee (Debert, NS). This is where her middle name Ruby came from. 

Jorja spent her pup years at the front desk of Fairview Animal Hospital, enjoying lots of attention from many special clients. She then moved into the role of mascot for the Veterinary Hospital Assistant & Veterinary Assistant programs here in Nova Scotia. Jorja has taught lots of students important aspects of veterinary medicine and how necessary treats are. 

Jorja is now adding being the face of The Paw Pad Retreat to her resume. She started from the she's here!
