Farm, Pet & House Sitters
Serving Waynesboro, Fishersville & Stuarts Draft
My name is Tonya and I am the owner & operator of The Farm Girl. I am The “Original” Farm Girl! After spending 20 years in the US Army, I spent a few months working with horses in Montana and discovered my purpose in life, caring for animals. Horses, in particular, have been a source of healing for me, but I truly love all animals. I have 4 dogs and 2 horses and I know how difficult it can be to trust someone to care for your animals the way you do.
My name is Paula Barlog and I am The Farm Girl’s big sister. I currently work at a local pet store and care for animals every day. I have a soft spot for animals in need and rescue anything I can! I have a Jack Russell terrier, 2 kittens and a bearded dragon. I will go out of my way to treat your animals as my own because I know how important they are, they’re family. Also, unlike my sister, I’m not afraid of birds! I look forward to adding your pet to our family.
My name is Hailey Stiltner and animals are a huge part of my life and they always have been. I am currently a college student and work at a local pet store. Even as a young girl, I wanted to grow up and work with animals. I have many animals of my own, so I know just how special each and every one of them is! I know how hard it is to trust someone with your animals as I’ve always had those same feelings, but I know I can care for them the way you do!
Go ahead and take that vacation you’ve always wanted, go visit family for the holidays, feel free to go out with friends after work, or just take a weekend off… we’ll take care of your fur~babies while you are away! Now even farmers, horse owners and multi-pet owners can enjoy more freedom. We’ve got you covered!

At this free “Meet & Greet” visit we complete necessary paperwork, answer questions, transfer keys, and tour your home/farm while discussing detailed instructions on how to care for your pets. This required meeting will be scheduled at least 48 hours prior to service. We use Time To Pet, a pet sitting software, to keep your information secure and updated. Once you become a client, please download the app from the app store to help us ease your mind.
Doggo Visit or Kitty Duty
(Rates start at $15 per visit)
Visits include feeding, medications, walking, litter scooping and plenty of attention. Rate is for up to 2 dogs or 4 cats. Each additional pet is $5 each. (Visits usually average 15-45 minutes. No extra charge for administering medications.)
(Rates start at $60 per overnight)
We will stay overnight at your home. The overnight sit will include any feedings and outside time in the morning and/or evening, as well as collecting newspapers & mail, watering plants, trash to curb, etc. It also includes at least 2 visits during the day. The overnight gives you the added security of having someone in your home all night to keep your pet company and also to keep an eye on your home.
Farm Visits are determined by workload.
We do not offer long term daily dog walking or boarding. We specialize in short term care. Please contact us to discuss pricing or to see if we offer something not listed.
We limit the number of clients we have per day to ensure we can spend ample time with each animal we are caring for. Our policy is that cats and other small animals are visited at least once every 24 hours, farm animals are visited at least twice every 24 hours & dogs are visited at least three times every 24 hours.
