Meet the Owner
Backyard Pet Services was born out of a traveler’s dream. As a pet lover with a demanding job, I traveled for years but yearned to be home with my plants, animals, fish, and flowers. I was lucky to have loving care for my birds, cats, dogs, and fish while I was on the road but many of my colleagues forewent the love of a pet (or even plants!) for lack of someone to take care of the house three days a week. Now, in retirement, I am living out my dream here in McKinney. I live at home with my pets and help you take care of yours as well.
