Mike & Christy

New Owners

Mike and Christy recently purchased SouthPaws. They have been forever dog lovers and currently have four dog kids of their own! You may just see Ozzie (Irish wolfhound mix rescue), Bailey (Airedale terrier), Leila (Basset hound) or Vladimir (Rat terrier rescue) hanging around the place.

Mike and Christy both come from the healthcare industry. They bring with them high standards for care, cleanliness, safety and service. 


General Manager

Melissa is the General Manager and has been here for 7 years. She has a new puppy named Major and a pit puppy, Rza. If you are ever worried about your dog’s behavior on a given day, just ask Melissa to rate how “naughty” your dog was (she has a sliding scale).


Morning Shift Leader

Zechariah runs the evening shift and has worked here for 4 years. He has two dogs of his own- a Jack russell mix named Dizzy and a beagle named Eli. Eli thinks he's front desk security, so you have probably heard him give out his loud beagle yell a time or two. 


Weekend Shift Leader

Grace runs our weekend shifts. She has worked with us for a few months and has loved dogs all her life. She does not have a dog of her own yet due to college, but that means she has an abundance of love for yours!



Animals are Ashley's passion and always have been since she was a child. Her grandmother says she was born with a “gift” because even the worst behaved dogs trust her usually. Even wild animals tend to come to her Lost dogs find her. Ashley's very knowledgeable about all types of breeds. She own 5 dogs, 2 cats, quail, chickens, rabbits, and a few reptiles. She was raised on a farm so Ashley’s very comfortable with handling animals.
