Lauren Mosher, CEO   Hi there! I’m Lauren. A Richmond native, I now reside in Midlothian. I’m a lover of all things 4-legged, and grew up working in vet clinics. I am an active volunteer and Crew Leader at the Richmond Animal League, and have served on their Board of Directors.

Meghin   I graduated from Ferrum College with a degree in Exercise Science. When I’m not coaching soccer I enjoy taking my dogs on hikes, trying out every Richmond dog park, and exploring the city with my pups by my side. I love learning the individual personality of each animal I work with, ensuring we both enjoy our time together!

Sara   Hi! I’m Sara. I moved down to Richmond in 2016 after graduating from UVA, where I spent time volunteering at the local animal shelter. Now I work part-time at VMFA running their Fellowship program. I’m far too obsessed with my cat, Apollo, who showed up at my back door as a stray in 2017 and never left. In my free time, I’m snuggling with my kitty (& hoping to soon add a dog to my fur family), constantly baking, and working on my Etsy store.

Alex F   Hi, I’m Alex! I grew up in Northern VA, but recently moved to Richmond to follow my dreams as an artist and become more inspired by the art and culture this city has to offer! I have worked for pet hotels/doggy day cares in the past, but love the one on one time I get to spend through dog sitting and walking. If you would like a drawing of your furry friend, let me know!

Sydney   Hi there! My name is Sydney. I am a fun, energetic, and diligent woman, currently attending the University of Virginia. Anybody who knows me, knows that I am a true animal lover at heart and will always go the extra mile to make sure your pet is safe and happy. As well as raising two rescue dogs (Lizzy and Roxy) at home from abused backgrounds, I have “dog-sat” and taken more neighborhood dogs on runs/walks than I can remember. Additionally, I have volunteered my entire life for local animal shelters, such as the Humane Society, BARK, and the SPCA. I have experience with deaf, blind, disabled, and aggressive puppies and dogs. I am willing and able to serve you as best I can, because I truly believe that dogs are not simply our pets but our family.
