How It All Began

Dreaming Big in a Small Town Salon

Founded in 2014, Fabulous Fur began as a small, 3 groomer operation. Sara Elam joined the salon in 2016 as a groomer. After 3 years, she was given the opportunity to acquire the budding business, leading to her becoming the salon's owner in September of 2019.

Fast forward to now and the salon has flourished under Sara's leadership, expanding the salon and growing the team to 7 groomers, 5 bathers, and a receptionist! Sara strives to exceed industry standards by providing a fun work environment, benefits to the team, and maintaining a high standard of quality, safety, and cleanliness.
