About Us



I grew up in Powder Springs on a small farm and have been passionate about my love for animals all of my life! I always dreamed of becoming a Vet and began working at an animal hospital at 16 and later as a Vet Tech. I discovered that to be a Vet was much too sad of a profession, surrounded by tragedy and death every day. I decided to follow my other passion, technical drawing and art as an Architect. But I did not find what I wanted at Southern Tech. I finally found my perfect fit when I met my mentor, Donna Haas, of Puppy Toes Grooming. I left college and began my apprenticeship with her in 1985. I have never looked back! This is truly my calling and I am so blessed to have a profession that I truly still enjoy and love, even after almost 35 years!

Nicole, lovely assistant


Nicole is my wonderful assistant! She does the morning management and bathes and dries everyone for me. She is an almost empty nester, happily married mother of two beautiful daughters. She has a background in message therapy, nursing and the senior care industry. She has always been an animal lover and enjoys the rewards this job offers more than her previous careers. I am so blessed to have such a talented, capable and awesome woman to be my teammate! She is kind, patient and thorough. Her work product is flawless and most importantly, the dogs love her.....and so do their parents!
