Murray

Position: Head of Distribution

Murray excels in fast and speedy service, and could possibly be the world’s fastest red ear slider turtle. If she’s not in her tank relaxing and sunbathing, you can probably find her zooming around the office. She enjoys the occasional break and can often be found soaking up the sun wherever she can.

Miranda

Position: C.O.O. (Cat Operating Officer)

Miranda came from the streets and earned her way to the top. She now enjoys her lavish lifestyle. She is certainly the boss and loves getting all of the attention on her. She is also our therapy cat and does an amazing job as she has such a gentle nature. Her son, Harry, is another board member.

Dodi (Left)

Position: Quality Control

Dodi takes his job very seriously and does not skip a beat to check on the quality of the snacks. He is often found either sleeping or begging for more snacks (and is quite the treat seeker). Dodi was brought to us as part of our Take Your Pet to Work Day and he loved it so much, he never left.

Harry (Right)

Positions: Waste Management

You won’t find anyone who takes waste management more seriously than Harry. He is constantly making sure everything is operating in outstanding condition. When he is not working, he is usually cuddled up with his mom, Miranda, or his BFF, Dodi. As the baby, he knows his place very well.

Mario

Positions: Mascot

Mario is a very sweet Australian Parakeet and, understandably, our mascot. He spends his days relaxing in his cage and his weekends flying around the front room and looking for any seeds that have been leftover. In his spare time, he also enjoys chirping some tunes and loves interacting with our couriers.

Koko

Positions: Security and Official Client Greeter

Koko has no problem with confrontation and is a master of stealth. He can either be found greeting clients when they walk in the door or snoozing in his bed. Originally from Alberta, Koko decided he needed a change of pace and has been with us even since he made the move to Vancouver.
