My name is Barbara Black. I own and operate For Your Pet’s Sake. I have loved animals all my life. The joy pets have brought to me is a constant source of inspiration. I believe our pets show us the true spirit of unconditional love. In 2004 I decided to retire as a budget analyst and pursue my dream of caring for animals on a full-time basis. I, myself, have worked long hours relying on a pet sitters and dog walkers to be there for my pets when I couldn’t. I’ve felt the guilt over not spending quality time with my pet.

So, I started For Your pet’s Sake to help others in the same position. I am an avid reader of information pertaining to the care of pets and dogs in particular. Our service caters to the well-being and happiness of both you and your pets. In our care, your pet gets dependable, loving care to your specifications. The care your pet needs and deserves. We have accumulated happy clients by showing their pets a great time while keeping them safe and protected. The team offers plenty of exercise, play, love and individual attention. We use only positive reinforcement methods. I have hand picked our staff to insure they are trustworthy and true animal lovers. Our services are insured and bonded and we customize your sit to accommodate your pets specific needs. In short, we give you peace of mind. Don’t Wait! Contact us today for a FREE consult. Your pet will thank you.

Barbara enjoys spending her free time with loves of her life, Allie and Andre. (Her dog Bella is in memoriam) As a trained handler, Barbara volunteers her time weekly with a therapy dogs, Pierre and Cosette. Visiting Virginia Oncology they spread hope and smiles to those in care. True to her personal mission of securing a no-kill animal sanctuary for Hampton Roads, Barbara was a volunteer with Web of life Animal Outreach, Inc. since 2005 at its inception! Barbara was instrumental in the start up of Web of Life (which was modeled after Best Friends Inc. – the organization that started the no-kill movement and has proven it can work.) until its closing in November of 2016.
