OUR
AWESOME TEAM

Meet our team, the very best pet sitters to care for your pets.

Lucie and Monterey

Lucie

Pet Sitter International CPR Certified

Lucie is the owner of Charlotte Metro Pet Group.  She has lived in many locations throughout the U.S. due to her husband’s career and has happily and permanently settled in the Charlotte area. She and her husband have been married for over 40 years, have two adult daughters and have raised many, many canines and a cockatiel named, "Dave" over those years.

After starting successful pet sitting businesses in Dublin and Irvine, California with many happy clients, Lucie decided the growing South Charlotte area could benefit from professional, reliable pet sitting services.

 

She takes care of all the business matters so her pet sitters can strictly focus on pet care and servicing the client’s needs with excellence. However, she does love going out to pet sit too!

Her philosophy is to treat client’s pets as if they were her own, and Charlotte Metro Pet Group's pet sitters follow the same philosophy. “We consistently want to make pet sitting stress free for the clients when they work or travel by giving the best of care while their pets have fun!”

Kelly.jpg

Kelly

Kelly is so happy to be back with Charlotte Metro Pet Group. Kelly was pet sitting with Charlotte Metro Pet Group a few years ago, then circumstances changed, and she had to sadly leave and go out into the "human working" world.


Kelly is a transplant from NH, where she and her husband were born and raised. They moved to Charlotte in 2016 with 5 kitties.  August 2023, Kelly went to one of our local shelters to meet a pair of kittens. As she was walking from kitty to kitty, her and her husband fell in love, and they came home with 4 kittens.  Kelly’s husband calls her, “the crazy cat lady.” She grew up with dogs, rabbits, fish, and cats and had her own horse.


Kelly has a great compassion for every living being, especially animals. She knows how she feels when she travels and leaves her babies, and that is always in the back of her mind when she is taking care of our clients. Kelly always goes above and beyond to keep our pet parents at ease when they are away from home and their fur kids.
