About Us

Headshot 2 small_edited.jpg

Jeannine Tilford founded Toad Busters in 2015 (Pet Protect Fencing's parent company) to South Florida protect pets from poisonous cane toads. In 2022, Jeannine founded Pet Protect Fencing as a separate division with a dedicated team focusing solely on barriers that block out poisonous toads... and other unwanted wildlife including snakes, coyotes, and racoons. Plus, it prevents small pets from escaping through fences! Simply put, it keeps pets inside an area and keeps pesky or dangerous wildlife out. 


Jeannine is a former vet tech, animal science educator and Florida Fish & Wildlife-approved trapper who too often saw, firsthand, the deadly result of a cat or dog's encounter with cane toads and other wildlife. 

Meet Maui

Maui is Pet Protect Fencing’s official mascot and owner/operator Jeannine’s beloved mini Bernadoodle. As a former vet tech and current Dog Mom, Jeannine was inspired to offer a unique barrier product to help to SAVE pets’ lives—like Maui’s—and offer owners peace of mind.
