AT FIRST LIGHT

WA L K O N BY Lisa Kang is up at 6 a.m. to walk her first dog of the day – her own English springer spaniel, Abigail – around the Franklin-Rosemary Historic District. The owner and founder of dog-walking company Walk & Wag, Lisa employs a network

of pet lovers to care for our community’s animals. Even Lisa’s daughter, Emma, an East Chapel Hill High School sophomore, helps in her free time. “One promising aspect of COVID-19 is the increase in pet adoptions,” Lisa says. “As people head back to work, we will be ready to help these new pets transition to their life without their parents at home.” – by Caroline Kloster
