We Love Pets!

Backyards to Barns is a premier pet sitting service in southern Wake county servicing Fuquay-Varina, Willow Spring and parts of Angier in North Carolina. We provide customized pet care in our home or yours when you have to be away from your fur babies. Because we aren't a large facility, your pet will receive individualized care and personal attention. They will be cared for in an environment designed to be as stress free as possible. Whether they need walks during the day to run off some energy, the mental stimulation of playtime or reinforcement of basic training, we will be able to give them the specific care they need.

Our Services

Drop-In Visits

Drop-in visits are 30 or 60 minute visits that include potty breaks, feeding meals and playtime. Your pet sitter may also bring in your mail, water your houseplants, refresh your pet's water bowl and cycle your house lights while you are away.

Dog Walks

Dog walks are 30 or 60 minute visits where exercise and physical activity are the main target. Walks can include playtime in a fenced area, a leashed walk in your neighborhood or a puppy adventure to the local dog park. 

Farm Care

Do you have more than just cats and dogs at your home? We offer horse and livestock care for small hobby farms. Barn duties can include early morning feed times, stall care, grooming, long line and ground work for horses and medication administration (oral, injectable, topical, wound care, hoof soaking, etc).

What makes us stand out?

Animals are our family.

We truly love animals of all shapes and sizes. From the wiggly puppies and cuddly cats to the shy timid dogs and older seniors, they all have something to give. There is nothing more special and rewarding than the love a pet gives to its people. We show all our animals the same kindness and compassion. 

We believe in building relationships.

We believe that good business starts with building relationships and understand that trusting someone new with your loved one can be difficult. Therefore, we strive to get to know you and your pets individually, to learn what your needs are for your pet and how we can best meet them. Your pet will be spoiled just as if they were with you.

Customized care for your pet's needs.

Not all pets are equal and there will be times that they require special treatment while in our care. We pride ourselves in offering the kind of flexibility our clients need. Whether it is early morning or late night visits, a ride to appointments or simply some extra cuddles to get through a scary thunderstorm, we promise to be there for our clients and their owners every step of the way.
