Vital Essentials® and Atlanta GirlZ Club™ are thrilled to announce that Atlanta GirlZ Club™ is now a Brand Ambassador and Guest Content Contributor for Vital Essentials! By way of introduction, Atlanta GirlZ Club™ is an exclusive brand owned by Kathi Welch along with her two fashionista doggies, Lucy and Holly. As brand ambassadors and guest contributors, Kathi, Lucy and Holly will be submitting articles/blog posts that will be posted on Vital Essentials’ website and social media. You might even get to meet Kathi, Lucy and Holly in person at public appearances representing Vital Essentials.
Kathi, Lucy and Holly are high profile pet influencers, popular public figures, pet fashion couture brand reps and fashion models. Lucy, the natural born starlet of the bunch, is an adorable, spunky and spirited Jack Russell Terrier. Holly is a slightly more reserved, playful and easy going Rat Terrier. Mom Kathi is also a contributing writer with Atlanta Pet Life magazine and guest contributor with Lick magazine. They enjoy attending pet events, fashion and industry shows and fundraisers across Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina and beyond. They will be in New York City later this year. These GirlZ, wearing only the finest of doggie dresses, outfits, jewelry and accessories, use their celebrity status to shine a light on and raise money for pet rescues and charities in Atlanta and around the country. They’re Atlanta’s premiere pet fashionista philanthropists. Kathi and the GirlZ have been prominently featured fashion models in previous issues of Atlanta Pet Life, as well as Lick magazine, The Atlantan Modern Luxury magazine and Simply Buckhead magazine.
Lucy and Holly are the current front cover models for Atlanta Pet Life. Outside of magazines, Lucy and Holly are prominently included in two books, and Lucy, through her canine agent, has appeared in a television series. Both Lucy and Holly are print models for pet industry catalogs, events, calendars and advertisements. Atlanta GirlZ Club™ appeared in a recent episode of Animal Planet “Cute as Fluff” along with their famous furfriends Kanga & Roo (two-legged Chihuahuas). They’ve even shown up on CNN’s National Dog Day special and appeared on The Weather Channel with Jim Cantore. Lucy and Holly are featured on YouTube in Lola and Pooch’s “Dogs4Kindness” campaign. The GirlZ enjoy giving back to the pet community at large and host extravagant, fun-themed doggie parties where their guests receive the gifts and pet food donations are given to rescue groups and shelters.
An important and “Essential” element of Lucy and Holly’s care is the food they consume. For several years now, both GirlZ have enjoyed eating a raw diet consisting primarily of Vital Essentials Freeze-Dried Turkey Entrees, supplemented with a variety of Vital Essentials Freeze-Dried Treats. They will write more about Lucy and Holly’s Vital Essentials diet and pet nutrition in an upcoming article. If they had to choose one lesson that Atlanta GirlZ Club™ is trying to instill in people, it’s one near and dear to many: The value of animals in all our lives and the importance of proper nutrition for our pets. Kathi says it best, “The rewards our pet companions and animals bring into our lives are light-years away from anything money can buy.”
Whether it’s looking great in doggie ball gowns, raising money for animal charities or guest contributing to Vital Essentials, Atlanta GirlZ Club™ is out spreading that message. You can enjoy the fun adventures of Atlanta GirlZ Club™ by following them via Vital Essentials’ website and also by following them on Instagram at @lucyandholly_atlgirlzclub .
