Hello, it's nice to meet you.

White Noise


Lauren Tarvis

I started at HSBC as Shelter Manager June 1, 2022. I was in banking for 14 years prior to that. Coming here to the shelter was by far the best decision I have ever made!

I have had a life full of animals of many shapes and sizes! From dogs, cats, horses, bunnies, guinea pigs, fish, frogs, birds, and hermit crabs. 

I am trained in animal first aid, Fear Free, and currently looking to acquire a dog obedience license. I have volunteered at area shelters since I was 8 and believe that is were my need to help animals find their perfect homes started.

I  currently reside in Chetek, WI with my husband Cody of 14 years, our 2 children Londan (12) and Corbin (8), and all our fur babies! Currently, I have 6 dogs, 16yr old Pomeranian-Lily, 14yr old Brittany-Daisy, 8yr old Lab-Chevy, 5yr old Pomeranian/Papillon-Luna, and a 2yr old Border Collie-Kai. I also have 2 kittens,  one in which was adopted from HSBC in the time I have been here.
