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.

She also makes house calls, sometimes driving for long stretches through desolate wilderness to check on a patient.
