Meet Our Team

Marcy Santos founder of The Right Fluff Pet Sitting

MARCY SANTOS

Founder

Hello, I'm Marcy, owner of The Right Fluff Pet Sitting!  I started this company in 2017 to bring together all the best aspects of pet care: innovative technology, reliable and loving staff, and professional training.

 

Before becoming a pet care pro, I did fundraising for a variety of causes, including animal advocacy!  I left the nonprofit sphere in 2016 to focus on pet care full time.  I've been a proud Rockville resident for 20 years and graduated from Richard Montgomery High School.  I went on to complete at B.A. in English at McDaniel College.

Hi! My name is Lauren and I am a student at the University of Maryland. Until I moved away for college, I had lived with pets my entire life. I love animals and I frequently stop by my parents house in Frederick to see my two dogs, Benny and Frankie. While college makes it difficult to have my own pets right now, walking, snuggling and playing with the pets I sit makes up for it. I look forward to meeting and taking great care of yours!

Hi I'm Sam! I grew up in Montgomery County and after a brief time in Pittsburgh I decided to come back to the motherland. Alongside my passion for animals, I am a musician, music teacher, and ski instructor. Growing up I was allowed to have small pets but not dogs or cats. So, I sought out as many small animals as I could adopt. I got to care for fish that kept having babies, escape-artist hamsters, loud birds, silly smelly ferrets in my bedroom, and even an adorable sugar glider. I have always been drawn to the healing power and delight that pets bring. I got my first dog as an adult and I am obsessed with her. I named her after the song "The Mighty Quinn" because she is my bringer of peace and joy. She has changed my life. I know how important pets are and I am looking forward to helping you love and care for yours!

Hi there! My name is Christy. 
Born and raised in Montgomery County. 
I have always been a dog person and have had dogs all my life. I currently have a yellow lab and a black lab, their names are Leo and Tank. They mean so much to me so I understand how important it is to have someone take care of your fur baby while you are away.  
One of my favorite parts of walking dogs is seeing how tired they are once we return home because they had so much fun on our walk exploring and using their senses. 
I look forward to seeing your furry loved one each visit :)

Hi there! I’m Erin and I live in the Bethesda/Rockville area with my two cats, Felicity and Marjorie. I grew up with Basset Hounds, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, and a cockatiel. Shortly after moving to Maryland, I started volunteering for a regional cat rescue where I learned many “Cat Care 101” technical skills. It was especially rewarding to help coordinate adoptions with loving families.  

Being a sitter is my way of giving to the pet and the pet-parent communities. It’s a pleasure to provide you with peace of mind when you can’t be with your fur baby.

Hi everyone! My name is Lauren!

I am a transplant to Maryland, who has had the opportunity to live in a variety of places! 
Throughout my professional career, I have always had a connection with animals between working at zoos and aquariums, performing marine science research, working as a veterinary assistant in a clinic setting, a positive reinforcement dog trainer for five plus years and most recently as a scientist in a laboratory setting. 

At home, I have a great dane, lab mix named Leif. He is almost five years old and is the sweetest, lap sitting big dog. He can be my adventure buddy and then the next minute my snuggle bug. I also have a cat named Bruce. He is nine years old and the friendliest kitty, who has never met a stranger he didn’t demand pets from. 

Since moving into the laboratory setting for work, I have been missing working with my favorite furry companions, dogs and cats!! I am looking forward to meeting and spending time with your favorite furry companions!
