A former Midwesterner, Dee Thornell moved to Alaska more than 25 years ago to pursue her life's mission: to care for wild and domestic animals of America's largest state. After starting her veterinary business out of a pickup truck, she now owns and operates Animal House, the most sophisticated veterinary hospital in Fairbanks, Alaska. Animal Planet documents her single-minded dedication to care for creatures like bald eagles, owls, chinchillas, beavers, iguanas, ox, moose and bears. It often requires her to leave the high-tech luxuries of her clinic and travel to remote villages by plane, four-wheelers, and even a horse and carriage. Once there, she relies on bare necessities to get the job done, while also dealing with subzero temperatures and days without daylight.
