Annie Hudson grew up in the rural town of Bastrop, Texas. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Dance and Theater from Texas State University. After college, she successfully pursued her love of dance and choreography alongside making a career as a Licensed Massage Therapist after attending the Texas Healing Arts Institute in Austin, TX.
Annie always considered herself an animal lover. After she rescued her family dog, Aeva, she grew an interest in working with, and providing care for, these fun-loving beings. Aeva was unlike any other dog Annie had met. Due to her tragic past, Aeva presented with behavioral issues that the two had to work through together. It took figuring out how to effectively communicate with Aeva to lead the path of a peaceful and balanced life for everyone involved. On that journey, Annie was also awakened to the dire situation of the overpopulation of dogs and cats. She became a volunteer for the Austin Humane Society where she helped care for dogs awaiting their forever home. As her passion for dance and massage faded, and her desire to work with animals grew, she decided to pack up two suitcases and follow her heart to NYC in 2009. Annie has since worked for, and managed, doggy daycares and dog walking companies around Manhattan before establishing Hudson's Hounds NYC in 2013.
These days, she enjoys spending time with her rescued kitty, Mo, and volunteering as a vegan educator, mentor, and animal rights advocate.
