Who Is Lucy?


Lucy is our 11-year-old beagle.  She loves everyone—especially when you have food in hand—and although she may never meet all the animals we care for, she still considers them her friends.  She also likes having a business named after her!

Meet The Sitters . . .

April and Alan met in 2003, shortly after April started pet sitting.  They decided to join forces and officially formed “Lucy’s Friends Pet Sitting”, named after April’s fun-loving beagle.  They were married in 2004, and have a full house with 3 dogs and 3 cats.  April attended Guilford College and received her Bachelor’s in Psychology; Alan attended Radford University and received his Bachelors in Administrative Systems.  They are active in the local Quaker community, and volunteer with various organizations that promote animal and environmental welfare.

Alan says: My favorite thing about pet sitting is walking dogs—it’s so relaxing.  And I like the cats, too!

April’s says: My favorite part about being a pet sitter is getting to take care of the animals—I really enjoy making their day with full bowls, a good walk, clean pet areas, and of course the loving and treats!
