Pet Fostering and Adoption in Wake Forest, NC

Long before we (Mandy and Josh) created Audrey’s Barkyard, we accumulated years of rescue work experience through fostering dogs and cats and volunteering at adoption events. We’ve been lucky enough to be able to not only continue this passion at home but also help in bigger ways through our business. After animals are vaccinated accordingly, we house foster dogs (and sometimes cats) at Audrey’s Barkyard until they find a loving forever home. Our Barkyard team and Paws For Life volunteers spend time socializing these foster pets and if necessary, caring for any health concerns that need to be addressed. Rest assured, to maintain the health and wellness of our guests, we don’t take in any animals that have any contagious ailments. Please note: We only work with Paws For Life Animal Rescue and are unable to take in pets from the public that can no longer be cared for.

Best place to let your fur babies spend the day (or night) and be cared for by the amazing staff at Audrey's Barkyard! They truly treat your pet as if they were their own! Also, just completed a week of on-site training with Timothy Crane at Audrey's, and I am very pleased with Gracie's progress! She has done very well with her training and Tim gave me some great tips to continue our work at home. I would highly recommend his on-site training for any pup needing a little extra fun, fair and firm training! Thanks Tim!

The staff are friendly and interactive. The facility is clean and well equipped. We like the live camera feed for doggy daycare and boarding. They offer a large variety of affordable services and discounts for packages. Our pug puppy Annabelle always seems to be comfortable going here.

My mom takes me to Audrey’s Barkyard while she goes to work. I know I am going to have a great day when she tells me to get in the car to go see my friends. I LOVE to play with my dog friends and I really LOVE all of the incredibly sweet, fun and loving humans that take care of me like family. My mom is so happy to see me when she picks me up and I’m so tired from playing all day that I take great naps. My family is so thankful to have such a wonderful place for me to play!
