Kevin & Ann Stickford, Owners
Animals have always been their passion. In 2003, Kevin and Ann decided to share their love of animals with others by opening the doors of Five Points Kennels, Inc. Extensive research went into opening a facility that would be the best possible "home away from home" for their guests. They hope their extensive backgrounds in the pet industry provide clients a sense of security when leaving their four legged family members in their care.
Lauren Demaree, Manager
After graduating from Purdue University in August 2009 with a major in Animal Agribusiness, Lauren D. was hired as the first full-time Manager at our facility. Lauren began working here in June 2008 and continuously demonstrates her quality animal handling skills and knowledge as well as her intelligence and reliability to make good business decisions. Since she returned from an Australian study abroad program in July '09, she has been learning all aspects of managing the kennels as well as running a small business. In her "spare" time, she is pursuing her MBA at IUPUI's Kelley School of Business.
Dawn Hough, Groomer
Known to the staff as our very own "dog whisperer," Dawn Hough definitely has a gift for handling even the most sensitive of our guests. She is regularly seen petting, bathing and cuddling the guests who would rather not be handled by any of our other staff members. Her calm personality is appreciated by the staff and human clients as well as our four-legged friends. After graduating from the Grooming School of Indiana in 2010, Dawn spends a majority of her time bathing and grooming our in-house guests and those visiting for a bath or hair cut. She is working to expand her grooming business and would love for you to try out her wonderful grooming skills.
