Dr. Malkolm Graffe, DVM & CO-OWNER


Dr. Malkolm Graffe was born and raised on Vashon Island where his childhood yellow lab, Eddie, inspired him to become a veterinarian. He graduated from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine and is an emergency veterinarian in Spokane.

Jacquie was raised on a Thoroughbred farm in Gig Harbor, where she grew up with horses, cats, and dogs. After college she spent time working in the sport horse industry before taking an administrative role at a veterinary clinic.

They have collaborated together to form Rivers Release LLC as an alternative to traditional pet euthanasia done at a clinic. They have both loved and lost pets in their lives and feel strongly about providing a service that puts the pet first during their final moments.

In their spare time, Jacquie and Malkolm enjoy spending time with their two adopted pets, Shasta, a Malamute mix, and Carlos the cat. They enjoy spending time in the outdoors and working around their farm.
