Pets of Goucher

Meet the hardworking pets and animals of Goucher College! Lucy, who works at the Academic Center for Excellence, is always looking for snuggles during the day. Cookie, our miniature horse, hangs out at the stables. We want you to do your best at Goucher, and that’s not possible without plenty of support and time to de-stress. Our furry friends are here for you.



Trained in unconditional love, Lucy is the greeter dog for ACE (Academic Center for Excellence) and is available for hugs and de-stressing.



Cookie is a miniature horse and has an official job helping to socialize the new horses at Goucher. She can be a little curmudgeonly, but loves her friends and loves to eat.


  • The doctor is in. Lucy is available by appointment at ACE, the Academic Center for Excellence.

  • Lucy and the ACE staff coordinate a group Halloween costume.
