Sabrina Hoadley - Owner

Paul and Sabrina

Are Engaged!!!

Sabrina was born in Lynchburg Virginia and moved to Raleigh, NC area with her family at the age of 12. After graduating Cary Highschool, Sabrina took the opportunity to follow her dream of being in the animal care industry and has never looked back. She started as a receptionist at a high volume and high-quality Animal Hospital in Raleigh, NC. This is where she worked through the ranks learning all aspects of the business. Sabrina moved to Calabash, NC in 2013 to manage VCA Seaside Animal Hospital. Sabrina has extensive pet medical and care knowledge as she has worked alongside the area’s most well respected Veterinarians.

While managing the animal hospital, Sabrina realized the need for growth in the daily dog play and socialization aspect of the local pet care industry in a safer and more stable environment. With all other area daycare facilities only offering outdoor play areas, Sabrina felt compassion for the dogs being outside in extreme heat and being caught in severe sporadic storms. This compassion drove her to opening the area’s only indoor, climate controlled, premier facility. She wanted to provide the safest and most comfortable environment for her community’s furry family members. With Sabrina’s 22 plus years’ experience/expertise and highly qualified staff, Ruffin It Doggy Daycare is the number one choice of pet care in the area.

When Sabrina is not at Ruffin It Doggy Daycare you can find her relaxing on her boat with her dog Wesley, and boyfriend Paul.

Carson Almond - Facility Manager

Carson is a North Carolina native born in a very rural city located in Stanly County. He came from a large family, where he and his siblings always had animals growing up; therefore, developing a compassion for his four-legged friends at a very early age. Carson grew up spending most of his days enjoying the outdoors, and adventuring. He was brought up with many farm animals and pets. Basically, he was quick to befriend anything with four legs. His passion for the outdoors and animals naturally guided him into the field of pet care. Prior to working at Ruffin It Doggy Daycare, Carson was a veterinarian technician for 13 years where he lovingly cared for other’s pets. Carson not only has a vast knowledge of animal care and behavior, but also shares a love for business. Ruffin It Doggy Daycare is a “best of both worlds scenario” for Carson. It opened the avenue for him to move into a managerial position, thus utilizing his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration & Marketing while continuing to remain in the pet care field that he loves. On his days off you can find him with a fishing pole in hand or enjoying a nice day in the sun. But, while within the doors of Ruffin It Doggy Daycare, you will find him providing the best quality care to your furry family members.
