Alix Marcoux DiLorenzoHOMEWARD BOUND, GILFORD, NH

HER WORKPLACE spans four towns and 167 square miles, but pet care provider Alix Marcoux DiLorenzo never complains. After all, the New Hampshire Lakes Region boasts mountains, lakes and an abundance of scenic trails on which to walk canine clients. She and two employees also provide vacation care for cats. Three years ago, DiLorenzo and her now-husband Dan survived back-to-back cancer diagnoses and treatments, which she says forced a refocusing that made the business significantly better.

Cheering her on are husband B.C., step-daughters Brentney and Bryanna, seven grandkids, and a house full of pets, including Standard Poodle Sara (posing here).

B&B PET CARE, TROY, NH

Lily Marie Plasse loves all animals, furry and scaly alike. When not pet- and farm-sitting, dog-walking and poop-scooping, she fits into her schedule educational shows that feature reptiles, spiders and insects.
