In Loving Memory:

Janet Gillespie

Janet Gillespie, was our office manager for over 23 years and passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer in August, 2016. It is truly an understatement to say that Janet was an incredible person; loyal, compassionate, caring and deeply committed to animal care. I first met Janet when I was a student of the age of 17 working at another animal hospital. We became life-long friends and ultimately she came to work with me when I opened the BloorMill Veterinary Hospital. There from the beginning, Janet arrived with paint brushes in hand before the doors even opened. She was the type of person who always wanted to lend a helping hand and support her friends.  I can honestly say that after 38 years of working in this profession I have never met another person who was as dedicated to providing loving care to pets in the Veterinary environment. She was a quiet person happy to remain in the background but was never afraid to stand up for the rights and protection of animals. Her unconditional love for animals and her desire to keep her patients comfortable was an inspiration to everyone around her and made them better people and better at their jobs. In a conversation, Janet told me she felt strongly that our furry friends have souls and she was looking forward to being reunited with her many pets and family/friends who had gone before her. I like to think there are thousands of animals waiting on the other side to greet her and thank her for her love and healing over the many years. Among them will be her many cherished cats and horses.

Rest in peace our dear Janet….
