It is with great sadness that we announce Shannon (Houser) Almond passed away Oct. 13, 2014.
Born May 21, 1962, Shannon is survived by Garry Houser (father), Gwen Johnson (sister), Michael Houser (brother), Kelly Almond (spouse) and many friends and pets who cherished her.
Shannon graduated from The Dalles High School in 1980 and from Pacific University in 1992, where she completed (with honors) a Master’s degree in physical therapy.
Shannon worked in human acute care and in-patient rehabilitation for 15 years in Oregon before she became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner. In 2006, Shannon began working at the Las Vegas Veterinary Specialty Center as their Rehab Coordinator. Shannon was a devoted champion of animals for which she provided the utmost care and compassion.
We have a "multitude of memories," but most of all, we cherish her strong compassion and amazing sense of humor. Shannon's heart and wit were unmatched. A celebration of Shannon's life will be announced at a later date.
