Meet the owners, Lois and Harold!

At Four Paws Pet Sitting Services, we take pride in the high quality of our pet sitters. Each sitter is carefully screened during the hiring process, so you can be rest assured that your pet’s caretaker:

  • is very attentive to the needs of your pet;
  • is an animal lover and has pets of his/her own;
  • has had an extensive background check before hire (and then another a year after hire);
  • is mature and responsible.

Our team of more than 20 sitters allows full coverage throughout Wake County. This, in addition to our careful selection, allows us to provide you and your pet with the best service available!

 Lois Kelly, owner of Four Paws, has worked as a veterinary technician and is current on first aid and CPR training. Throughout her life, she’s had dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, fish, ferrets, turtles, iguanas, and even a goat have been her pets – so to say she’s an animal lover is an understatement!

Lois started Four Paws Pet Sitting Services back in 2004 because she saw a need for excellent pet care in the home. She knew it was best for a pet to stay in their own home, getting lots of love and being stress free vs. going to a kennel.

Give Lois a call, (919) 388-7297.


 Harold Kelly, co-owner, was born and raised right here in Raleigh! When he was 12, he got his first job working in an animal boarding and training facility… and loved it so much that he worked there until he was 21. He graduated from NCSU in civil engineering. Harold does a lot of the “behind the scenes” work at Four Paws to fully complement Lois’ day-to-day management and efforts.


Meet Robyn!


Robyn is the friendly voice answering the phones and booking your visits. She listens to your needs and picks the best sitter for you and your fur kids. Robyn grew up in the great state of New Jersey and spent most of her childhood there. She had pets all throughout her life, including an adorable American Bulldog named Azura. Robyn is now the proud mommy of three (human) children, along with 4 dogs, 2 cats, 2 bearded dragons, 1 water dragon, and 2 cockatiels. (There is plenty of interaction to keep everyone happy!) She enjoys being an important part of this business and helping pet owners find the perfect care for their furry family members.
