About Us My Furry Godmother Pet Sitting and Dog Walking


We have been loving pets and their people since 2007. All of our sitters believe in this mission and will treat you and your pet like family.

Whether you are out of town or just at the office you need to be able to trust the people coming in to your home. 

All of our sitters have been thoroughly vetted, have extensive experience with all kinds of pets and have passed rigorous background checks.  

My Furry Godmother is bonded and insured for your protection and to give you the absolute peace of mind needed while you work or travel.

We offer pet sitting and dog walking in Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina and Apex. 

We don't just do cat sitting and dog sitting!  We have also cared for bunnies, hamsters, guinea pigs lizards and even pigs! 

So if you need anything from a Holly Springs dog walker for mid-day walks or a Fuquay Varina cat sitter for an extended vacation or anything in between My Furry Godmother has got you covered! 

Hi!  We are the Blanton Family and we are so excited you are learning more about My Furry Godmother!  

We have a passion for pets and a focus on our customers' experience.

My Furry Godmother was founded in 2007 and has been steadily growing
