Hughes Faith, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, Auburn University


Dr. Sammie "Faith" Hughes was born and raised in Bainbridge, GA. At an early age, she developed a love of animals and biology, so it was only natural that she wanted to become a veterinarian. After graduating from Bainbridge High School, then attending Bainbridge College, she transferred to Auburn University. Dr. Hughes graduated from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine cum laude in 1990. After working 2 years at Haines Road Animal Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL, she moved back to Bainbridge and worked at Allied Veterinary Emergency Clinic in Tallahassee in 1992 and 1993. On her days off from Allied, Dr. Hughes did relief work at area veterinary hospitals. Relief work is what brought her to Crawfordville, in 1992, when Dr. Jolly Rogers of Forest Animal Hospital (now VCA Wakulla Animal Hospital) needed heart surgery. Dr. Hughes fell in love Wakulla County and never left Crawfordville!

Dr. Hughes is married to Bobby Inlow (also from Bainbridge) who is a police officer at FSU. They have a daughter, Libby. Their family also includes 2 cats (Chuck & Little Johnny), 2 cocker spaniels (Woo & Brodie), a Lhasa mix (Precious).

Faith is a small animal veterinarian who works on dogs and cats. Her fields of interest are preventative health care, internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, and dentistry.  She is also a board member for CHAT (Citizens for Humane Animal Treatment).

"growing up in Bainbridge, GA , my family always had pets, cats, dogs and even a pet goat. My first job was a groomer and kennel tech at Parway Animal Hospital. This is where I fell in love with cocker spaniels and labradors.  I am a strong supported of pet adotions, most of my pets are adoptions ( they are all Auburn fans!) GO WAR EAGLES "
