My Pet Alpaca Comes To Vienna

A Virginia-based company is bringing visits from baby alpacas to your door. Andrea Diaz, of Vienna, launched My Pet Alpaca this summer. Those who want a visit from Diaz and her two pet alpacas Pisco and Chewpacca must fill out an online form to sign hoping to bring joy to local children during the pandemic. According to, "Visits start at $40 for a half an hour and $60 for an hour, depending on location. “You don’t need to leave the house; you don’t need to go to the zoo; you don’t need to plan a whole day. It can just be a casual visit,” Diaz said. Once the business started, Diaz said that she purchased a bigger vehicle to transport her alpacas." As per, "Diaz is from Peru, where she says it’s normal to have alpacas as pets. She moved to Virginia about six years ago. She said that she wants to continue the business beyond the pandemic. “Who wouldn’t want to meet two baby alpacas? They’re super fluffy; they’re super friendly,” Diaz said. “Most of the kids are really excited, and they want to pet them immediately."
