Austin – Boarding Manager

Austin was born and raised on Aquidneck Island and graduated from Middletown High School. Austin has loved animals, especially dogs, since he was a child. Family can recall Austin carrying around a dog breed encyclopedia during most of his childhood. Austin has been working with animals for almost ten years, starting out by volunteering at the local animal shelter. Austin enjoys the beach, spending time in downtown Newport, and collecting antiques. Austin resides in Tiverton with his partner and their German shepherd, as well as their two house rabbits.


Lauren, an Aquidneck Island native, began her career at NAH in July of 2017 as a boarding assistant. Lauren truly loves working with all animals but has a special place in her heart for small dogs. Lauren hopes to one day be able to adopt senior dogs to offer them a loving home in their final years. She is currently the proud mom of a feisty Dachshund/Chihuahua named, Charlie. In her free time, Lauren enjoys traveling, exploring the outdoors and painting/drawing.
