Save your citrus peels (i.e. orange, lemon etc) and either grind them up in your blender/food processor or chop finely with a sharp knife and sprinkle liberally over your garden area. The pets despise this scent and will hunt other places. Just remember to respread when it rains (or you water your garden) to keep the scent fresh. It won't take but a few applications until the pets 'get the message' and will leave your garden alone without further treatments.
I have used this method for my neighbor pets for years, only having to repeat when the neighbors acquire a new pet.
We have feeders and bird baths out for birds, I don't want to deter or harm wild birds nor upset my cat who likes to sit and lay on the window sill when the window is open. So how do we deter those neighborhood "poopers"?

Try spreading lime along the perimeter of your yard, it deters snakes, it may work with neighbors pets, etc..
