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. To see a list of adoptable dogs and cats in the Wake Forest and surrounding areas or to learn how to become more involved in the rewarding life of pet fostering, go to www.pawsforlifenc.org.
