All of our four legged clients receive individualized attention and care while in our hands. We strive for a quality versus quantity approach for your pet.

MEET Joanne

As far back as I can remember, we had big, fluffy four legged friends in the house. My Dad was especially fond of rottweilers and huskies, so as you can imagine, they were bigger than me! Though, I was never intimidated; growing up with both dogs and cats of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments taught me great patience, compassion, and love for animals. It wasn't until the past year that I truly realized how much I wanted to spend my time devoted to their care, rescue, and overall well being. In short, that's the story of how Canines + Felines North Carolina came to be. 

But, the journey doesn't stop there. I'm an active volunteer of the Wake County Animal Center, a Board Member with the Friends Of Wake County Animal Center, the non profit that aligns with the Center to fund many life saving, helpful programs, and also run my passion project, Convos For Canines, aimed at giving a voice to canines in need around the world. The end goal is to save as many canines as possible.

In regard to my education in all things dog, I have taken professional seminars in dog body language, reactive dog behavior, and most recently, begun a course in dog training to further my education in dog psychology and behavior. It is one of my personal passions to continue to self study to learn as much about dogs and cats as possible.

All in all, when working with Canines + Felines North Carolina, your pet will be in the most trusting, loving hands possible.



30 Minutes

We love to meet each and every pet we work with to ensure we are the best fit! This appointment lasts about half an hour. The meet and greet fee is applied to your first booking, if booked within one week of initial meeting. At this meeting, meet your fur baby, pick up two copies of your keys, clarify any questions over the Client Service Agreement well as answer any of your questions or concerns.


Whether your pet needs companionship or a lot of activity, our sessions provide more enrichment and stimulation than a standard half hour appointment. For a full hour, your dog will be enjoying the beauty nature has to offer with plenty of exercise, mental stimulation, and one-on-one wholehearted attention. We can cater walks and activity to your pet based on age, energy level, and interests. Flat fee for up to two dogs; additional pets may incur added hour of time.



30 Minutes

Let us check in with your sweet kitten or cat! During our half-hour check in, we will scoop their litter, provide fresh food and water, if needed, play with them, and be sure to give them lots of attention and affection. Our cat check in is ideal for up to two cats. Each additional cat will incur a $10 fee.

"Animals have always been drawn to Joanne. She has watched our two dogs (and one of them is very large dog!) many times. She cares for them as if they were her own furbabies. She is trustworthy, dependable, very loving, and caring. She loves to play with them and spoil our dogs, Otis and Aggie. I would highly recommend her if your in the market for someone to watch your animals."

Karen, Louisburg, NC

"Joanne loves animals as much as I do (which is saying a lot!). I wouldn't trust my two pups with many people, but she's definitely on the short list. It can be so stressful worrying about your fur babies when you have to travel, but they're in great hands with Joanne!"

Bethany, Raleigh, NC

Joanne has a deep love and drive when caring for animals, she treats them all like they are her best friends. When our fur baby or any others are in her care you can bet they are being treated like they are a part of our family!

Michael, Wendell, NC

Joanne is a total natural when it comes to animals, and she understands what it is like for your pet to be your fur baby! I trust her immensely - she is communicative, caring, and always goes the extra mile in her services!
