Dr. Melissa Pounders
Dr. Melissa Pounders is a 2006 graduate of the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Over the past 12 years of her veterinary career she has worked in small animal general practices and emergency hospitals in Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee.

Dr. Pounders is a Mississippi native and she resides on her family's farm in Tishomingo County. She has room for a lot of animal friends including 8 dogs, 3 cats, 16 bantam chickens (rumor has it she is about to add some more chicks soon), a herd of beef cattle and 4 donkeys. In her spare time she feeds cows...and when she's not feeding cows she enjoys riding her motorcycle, gardening, and cooking. She also enjoys spending time with her fiancé Andrew!
And speaking of her fiance'-Dr. Pounders will soon be Dr. Hale! She is engaged to be married to Andrew Hale of Oakland. They are planning a June wedding!
