ANTHONY HACKETT - OWNER
In March 2018 I became the proud new owner of Paws and People Too. I've been a certified professional Pet Groomer for 14 years (and counting!). I have worked at many pet oriented places, working with a range of animals from pocket pets on up. I am a proud Poodle Dad to an Apricot Miniature named Teddy who is with me every day. I'm living my best life, and I greet every day with a smile. I'm truly blessed. I've always dreamed of having my own salon, and now that I've made it, I have a new dream: to be owner of the best grooming salon!

My name is Brittany Jane and I have been working here since 2016 with the previous Owner. I am a certified professional Pet Groomer graduate from Animal Behavior College. I'm married to a Vet Technician, so I'm surrounded by animals all day! We have three cats (Special Sauce, Argentum, and Germanium), a rabbit (Asiago), and a Standard Poodle (Ursa)! Soon Ursa will be travelling to the shop with me most days! You can follow my grooming adventure on my Instagram or Facebook page!
My name is Mike and I've been working here since November 2020. I have been a professional pet Groomer since 2008 and I have genuinely loved every minute of it. Building a relationship with pets and their people is the best part of my career. I love all dogs, but I'm particularly fond of large breeds; two of my favorites are Bernese Mountain Dogs and Rhodesian Ridgebacks. My wife Jenn and I are the very proud parents of two little boys named Jakob and Logan. We also have three dogs named Erin, Java, and Rogue and one ferret named Severus. I'm so excited to join this team and can't wait to get to know you and your wonderful pups!
My name is Heather Moore and I've been working here since September 2020. I have been grooming for about three years now and absolutely loving it! Ever since I was a little girl dogs have always been my passion and I knew I wanted to work with animals. So I thought why not grooming? I have fallen in love with the profession. My favorite breed to groom is a Golden retriever, and Pugs. I hope to own them one day! I also hope to keep expanding my knowledge on grooming styles and techniques, and creating bonds with dogs and people that will last a lifetime! I am a mom of a senior corgi named Foxy, and three ferrets: Ferrah, Torr, and Gandolf!
My name is Brianna Richter and I've been working here since November 2020. I stumbled into the world of grooming back in 2015 and have never looked back. It's not work when you love what you do, and grooming is my absolute passion. Clients welcome me onto their lives and allow me to love their pets just as much as they do when they entrust them into my care and allow me to make them both feel and look great! My craft is ever changing and evolving and I love the challenge and creativity of it all. Some of my favorite breeds to groom are Poodles, Bichons, and Schnauzers. I am the very proud mother of one little human, two lazy cats, one chunky mutt, one shy gecko, and four chickens! I am so excited to be part of the amazing team here and I can not wait to meet and pamper your furry friends!
My name is Angela and I've been working here since November 2020! I started working at Paws and People Too as a Bather just to experience the cage free atmosphere. I loved it so much I decided to start grooming here Full time! I have been a corporate Groomer for two years, exactly, in December 2020. Animals have always been a huge part of my life and I've always had a furry family member growing up! I love all bully breeds! I have two Pitbull mixes, a Jack Russell/Poodle mix, two cats, and a Rosy Boa snake.
Head of House
My name is Kyle and I have been working here since May 2020. I already love everyone and the dogs are beautiful! I actually have never worked with dogs before, but have been in 4H and other farming community groups growing up. I raised/showed chickens, rabbits, mini horses, and other critters. However, cooking was my passion so I've been working in restaurants my whole adult life. I just moved back up to the area after working in Disney World for nearly five years, and my friend Brittany talked me into trying something new for work. Who knew I would love it so quickly! I hope to get to know everyone very well, the people and their paws, too!!
