Kim Retchloff, DVM
I started Tender Heart Animal Clinic in January of 2006 in Springfield, Missouri. After outgrowing our original location, we made a move to Rogersville in the summer of 2008. We have continued to grow and improve.
I received my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. I graduated with my undergraduate degrees in Biological Sciences and Zoology from Colorado State University.
My family has always been my biggest supporters and a huge part of Tender Heart Animal Clinic. My favorite thing to do when not at the clinic is to spend time with my husband, Barry, and my kids, Dexten and Tiya. They are my pride and joy. As a family, we enjoy spending time with our array of animals, from the cattle to the exotics. We spend most of our time outdoors, working cattle, hiking, working on our endless projects, playing a friendly game of basketball. There is never a dull moment!

She met her husband Ben, an Ozark area native, while at Murray State. Jessica rescued her fur baby, Barrett, at a clinic she worked at while living in Alabama.

Receptionist Morgan joined the Tender Heart team in November 2017. Her smile is one of the first things you will see when you walk through the door. On her days off, she enjoys hiking, camping, fishing or just playing outside with her husband Mike and their two children, Xander and Eden. Morgan shares her home with six dogs (Sam, Lady, Nova, Mako, Rosie, and Cora) and three cats (Moo Moo, Hattie and Tribble).
I began my veterinary career in 2003 as a part-time receptionist for Rogersville Animal Hospital. I remained with the practice in 2008 when it was purchased by Dr. Retchloff and became Tender Heart Animal Clinic. I enjoy working at the front desk and taking an active role in client relations. When away from the clinic, I love spending time with my husband of nearly 30 years and our beautiful daughter. Our home is filled with all sorts of furry companions and my greatest joy is spending time with my exotics. Each and every day is an adventure!
I joined THAC in spring of 2021. I have years of experience in animal husbandry and care, and was a former veterinary technician before returning to the field at Tender Heart as a receptionist. My husband and I have a cat-loving daughter, and we share our home with a few furry friends. We have three dogs: Garrus, Hamish & Ranga, and one feisty feline Pixel. In my free time I enjoy playing video games, listening to music and taking photos.
Becky began working as a kennel technician at Tender Heart in March 2016. Since that time, she has taken the helm as Kennel Manager and keeps our boarding pets happy and healthy! Becky shares her home with two very spoiled dachshunds and four precocious cats.
I joined the Tender Heart team as their newest Kennel tech in August of 2021. I currently attend Fordland High School and am on the school’s long distance running team (we went to State this year)! My favorite hobbies include riding horses, running, and reading. I have 2 horses, 1 stubborn donkey, and one mischievous dog!
