Alex
Handler
I’m a military brat who moved to Savannah from Germany and am currently studying at SCAD. I work behind the scenes a lot, making sure the dogs are comfortable and happy during their stay at The Hipster Hound. And nothing beats being able to spend time in the yards with all the dogs!

Before I came to The Hipster Hound, I worked at an animal shelter in El Paso, TX. A lot of my love for this job originated from working closely with animals in need and fostering dogs who were waiting for their forever homes. Equally so, I love giving extra time and affection to the Renegade Paws foster dogs who get to stay with us from time to time. I look forward to every day that I get to spend with the wonderful pups at The Hipster Hound!

Ashley
Shift Leader
Most of my Hipster Hound family knows me as Kida’s mom, my blue Doberman. Born and raised in Savannah, I’ve always had a pet, whether it be a snail, rabbit, hamster, dog, or even a goat! I love animals of all sorts, but my love for animals never had a place in my career until I found my spot at The Hipster Hound!

On my very first day at work here, I knew this was what I was meant to do. I started as a yard attendant, and as time passed, I took on other responsibilities behind the scenes. Now, I am up at the front where I can greet our guests with their fur babies as they arrive or send them home to their humans after a fun day at daycare! What makes it even better is that The Hipster Hound is locally owned and operated. I now have a career that I love and have made a small, extended family here! I can’t wait to see you and your fur babies soon at The Hipster Hound!

Ashton
Yard Attendant/Handler
I’m from Woodward, OK, but I moved to Savannah as soon as I graduated high school. I guess you could say it was a calling and the best decision I could have made. In 2020, my girlfriend and I became involved with Renegade Paws Rescue. It has been such a rewarding experience to save dogs’ lives every day by volunteering, fostering, and participating in community outreach.

I met Tonya, the owner of The Hipster Hound, when we were avidly planning Wag-O-Ween, and that’s how I became interested in working here. I enjoy my job so much! I spent quite a few years working in the service industry, and I have to say, working with dogs has been such a joy! Basically, my life revolves around dogs, but I couldn’t be happier!

Brittany
Yard Attendant/Bus Driver
I’m a yard attendant and a bus driver at The Hipster Hound, one of my favorite places! How many people are lucky to say that they see wagging tails when they go to work!? I have two dogs of my own, Apollo, the GSD, and Melody, the GSD mix. They are both the light of my life, and they love going to work just as much as I do.

I’m not really seen when I’m working in the yards, but you can find me downtown driving my favorite pups home on the “Waggin’ Wagon” after a whole day of play! Don’t be shy to say, “Hi!” if you ever spot us! I look forward to seeing you and your pups soon.

Jade
Handler
I was born in Norfolk, VA, but I have lived in multiple states due to being in a military family. I enjoy reading, being outdoors, watching True Crime, anything animal related (especially zoos), and hanging out with my family. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in animal studies from Eastern Kentucky University in 2016. My animal adventures began with shadowing at Advanced Animal Care Clinic in Richmond, KY and at Hampton Cove Animal Hospital in Owens Crossroads, AL.

After college, I worked with a wide variety of animals as a Temporary Animal Keeper and Sea Turtle Technician through GSU and as a Veterinary Technician at St. Catherine’s Island Foundation. I also currently work at Case Veterinary Hospital as an Animal Care Assistant. I have enjoyed being a handler at The Hipster Hound because I love working with dogs and getting experience at a doggie daycare and boarding facility. I am so thankful to continue my animal journey with The Hipster Hound and am very thankful for the opportunity to work here!

Kelly
Office Coordinator
I work in the office at The Hipster Hound. I’m from Spartanburg, SC, and I studied music at Anderson University. I am married, and I have two kids, Sarah and Sam.

Macayla
Retail Associate/Yard Attendant
I was born in Savannah but raised in Birmingham, AL. I found out about this job from friends who also work at The Hipster Hound, and I have made even more friends with the amazing staff here! My love of animals comes from my need to help and educate their humans so that everyone can have a better life, whether that is through pet nutrition or dog training.

I also love superheroes. Ask my dog, Kara, who is named after Supergirl! I split my time at The Hipster Hound as a yard attendant and a retail associate. I get the pleasure of getting to know our amazing Hipster Hounds and their two legged humans!

Parker
Yard Attendant
I was born and raised in Savannah and heard about The Hipster Hound from my aunt and uncle, who told me that they were hiring yard attendants. My focus is to make sure the dogs are happy and safe while they play. My job is fun and rewarding, and it’s a blast to meet new dogs every day! What more could I ask for?

I am also in the Army National Guard, repairing wheeled vehicles including Humvees and large trucks. I love to read to the dogs before putting them to bed when they are boarding. All of the dogs love “milk and cookies” and hearing “A Christmas Story” before bedtime on Christmas Eve. Parker is definitely an asset to The Hipster Hound!

Rachel
Yard Attendant
I heard from a family member that The Hipster Hound was the perfect place to work for dog lovers. I really love working here, and I love playing with and interacting with the dogs on a daily basis.

I have three cats at home named Mille, Mimzy, and Max. I also have a Labrador-American Bulldog mix named Samson. Thank you for letting me be a part of your dog’s day!

Stephen
Yard Attendant/Handler
I was born in Atlanta, but I was raised in Savannah. I attended Savannah Arts Academy for high school and then went to the Art Institute of Chicago. I joined The Hipster Hound because I felt it was a great opportunity to care for and look out for the family members we love so much.

As a yard attendant, I spend a lot of time with your little ones, but I will be training to become a handler soon, so I’ll be working more behind the scenes and taking on more responsibilities. I have one dog named Patch, and he’s a Schnoodle! Thanks for trusting me with your little ones! It makes my day to make theirs the best it can be!

Susie
Retail Associate/Yard Attendant
I’m originally from Columbus, OH, but I’ve been living in Savannah since 2011. I’ve been working at The Hipster Hound since October of 2018. I started as a pet sitter, and when we expanded and opened the Diamond Causeway location, I started working there.

I have one dog named Lucy, a Chiweenie. In my free time, I love to lift weights, travel, go for walks, and spend time at the beach. Thank you for letting me take care of your fur babies!
