    I’m Lily, and my passion is to work with animals. I grew up surrounded by dogs and cats my entire life. My love of animals started at a very young age, and I knew I wanted to work with all types of animals when I got older. Currently I have two dogs, but I would have a lot more pets if I could. Before working with Mary Puppins, I worked at an animaI shelter and also groomed dogs. I still groom in my free time. I love being a pet sitter because it gives me the opportunity to meet and bond with so many new pets! It’s rewarding when an animal loves seeing you when you walk in the door. I love what I do!

    Hello, my name is Zack Dobson, I am married to my beautiful wife, Elizabeth and we have a fantastic 5-month-old daughter, Taya Meadow. I have two dogs, Gemma, a Maltese/Shiatzu mix and Raylan, a Jack Russell Terrier. Animals have always been an enormous part of my life as well as my passion; they hold a special place in my heart. I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to work with such a professional company where I walk dogs and meet new people on a daily basis. Honestly, I feel that having a daily routine is so important in the lives of our pets. I look forward to building a trusted relationship with you as well as your animals.

    Hey! I’m Savanna Greene. I’m twenty years old and a junior at Appalachian State University. I’m a server and I have been pet sitting for a little over a year now for Mary Puppins. I love animals, I’ve had dogs and other animals my whole life, pretty much from the time I can remember. In my free time I like to go eno-ing, hiking and swimming so summer is my favorite season. I would love to help take care of your furry friends whenever you need!
  6. Alice Whyte
    Alice Whyte
    My name is Alice Whyte and I am currently a senior double majoring in Finance and Risk Management at Appalachian State University here in my beautiful hometown of Boone. I grew up on a small farm right outside of town, so animals have been a central part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have a chunky two-year-old bunny, Walter, and two loving older dogs, Elena and Bella (pictured). I wait tables at The Peddler Steakhouse and work in a pottery studio on the weekends, aside from my work at Mary Puppins Pet Sitting. After my graduation, I plan on continuing my education at Appalachian State by working towards my Master's degree in Sustainable Business.

    Hi! My name is McKenzie but mostly I go by Kenzie. I am a 21-year-old college student who loves animals. I am a server at the Peddler Steakhouse of Boone, and I have been a pet sitter for Mary Puppins for two years now! I attend Caldwell Community college and will be transferring to Appalachian State University next year. I have a cat named Honey (who’s my best friend), but I definitely don’t have a preference ;) I enjoy working for this company because of course I love to hang out with pets, and I love that there is a pet service that provides so much care.
