I started Happy Hound August 9, 2009 when I was 15. It started out all fun and games, but people took me seriously... It's been one adventure after another, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I've always been an animal lover, but things really took off when I got my first job working at a local pet store in Daphne the I was a freshmen in high school. I loved the job and learned a ton over the year that I worked there, and decided to strike out on my own and provide a more individualized pet care service option.
Since starting this business, I've been blessed with unimagined success in the forms of friends, mentors, life lessons, and best of all a profession that makes me look forward to getting out of bed everyday.
Thank you all for making this dream a reality!
Ever since I was very young, I've had an incessant desire to love and care for animals of all kinds: big or small, black or white, covered in fur or dressed in feathers. Working with Happy Hound is a dream come true. I treat each and every pet that I look after as my own. I feel rewarded everyday I go to work. I can say without a doubt this is hands down my favorite job! :)
I have been caring for animals since I was young and always had a passion for it. Growing up with a variety of different critters from pigs, to chickens, to snakes, only increased the love. So why not work for an amazing team like Happy Hound that allows you to do what you love everyday! .
Hello, my name is Savana Trader, I’m currently pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Marine Biology. My love for all animals has been a part of me from a very young age. I’ve always had pets and love to surround myself with them, they bring me so much joy and laughter. I love that I have the opportunity to meet and care for all of these sweet babies, this is the most gratifying job. I will always provide the best care that I would want for my own fur babies.
