Additionally, they are good will ambassadors and support numerous pet rescue groups and shelters. The GirlZ are brand ambassadors for a top-tier national pet food company and also write a monthly blog on the company's website. Kathi and Lucy are both experienced actors with extensive backgrounds working in theatre and television. Lucy and Holly  are trendy influencers in the pet community and have been featured on CNN, appeared on The Weather Channel with Jim Cantore, in YouTube videos and two books. Atlanta GirlZ Club burst onto the Atlanta Pet Lifestyle Scene over a decade ago and use their celebrity to shine a light on animal welfare, animal rescues and fundraising efforts. Their brand motto is “We’re all about Fashion, Fun & Fundraising.”  Their commitment and core mission is fundraising to help animals in need.  

Lucy is a spunky, spirited senior Jack Russell Terrier. Lucy and her fur-sister Holly, a slightly more reserved, playful senior Rat Terrier, and their Mom, Kathi (chauffer and operations manager) comprise the well-known Atlanta GirlZ Club. Represented by a canine talent agency, Lucy has been a “working actor” and professional fashion model since the age of two. Lucy has appeared in print fashion, advertisements, on stage and runway, in fashion pageants, as well as calendar features. Lucy and Holly are professionally trained and certified in advanced obedience and also have AKC Good Canine Citizenship Certifications. Both GirlZ have served as pet therapy dogs in Columbia, SC and Asheville, NC. Lucy television credits include a TV series and she is also a former cover model for the pet fashion industry. Proving they've still "got it," both Lucy and Holly continue to win high honor trophies and recognition at pet fashion galas, modeling glamorous haute couture by prominent pet fashion designers from across the U.S. and internationally. Lucy and Holly have been photographed in newspapers and magazines, and other media outlets, including The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Atlantan Modern Luxury Magazine, Simply Buckhead magazine, Dogster, Hottest Hounds of Atlanta, The Beverly Hills PupScouts Guide to Everything, as well as cover models for Atlanta Pet Life magazine, with a feature article about them. Atlanta GirlZ Club also writes "PaWty Animals," a popular column for APL. 

These fashionista philanthropists believe the rewards pet companions and animals bring into our lives are light-years away from anything money can buy.  Whether it’s looking great in doggy ball gowns or raising money for animal and people charities, the Atlanta GirlZ Club enjoys spreading that message.  You can follow their adventures and fashion on Facebook and Instagram @lucyandholly_atlgirlzclub.
