About Us

Vanessa & Eli

Zoo Sitters was established in 2006 by Pet Sitter of the Year, Vanessa Sorace.  In 2007, she hired her first pet sitter and Zoo Sitters began to grow into the highly respected company it is today.

Serving Atlantic and Cape May County, NJ, we offer vacation pet care, dog walks, potty breaks for pets who are home alone for long hours, companionship, play time, and even hotel/B&B pet sitting. Clients select 15, 30, 45 or 60 minute visits along with the time blocks in which they'd like for us to arrive. Hotel/B&B clients may be able to book custom visits longer than 1 hour when availability allows.

Our services cover every aspect of professional pet care from feeding, walking, litter box maintenance, administering oral medications, bringing in the mail and newspaper, adjusting lights and blinds, watering plants and even taking out the trash. Every client is unique.

With Zoo Sitters, you can be sure your pets are being cared for by professionals and that your house is being looked after by responsible members of our community. We are a crew of experienced, responsive, animal enthusiasts who pride ourselves on getting to know your pet,  ensuring them the best care possible. Our sitters are valued employees (no subcontractors) that take to heart the high standards of working for a professional pet sitting company and strive to exceed your expectations. Since we are not a one man operation, you will have a primary sitter and at least one back up sitter, ensuring emergencies never create a negative impact on you or your pets. As a convenience, we also offer online scheduling and accept credit and debit card payments.

We welcome the opportunity for you to get to know us so you feel confident when we look after your loved ones and we look forward to having you as part of the Zoo Sitters family! 

About the Founder

Vanessa Sorace has extensive pet care experience with a wide range of domestic and exotic animals. After graduating from West Chester University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a concentration in Animal Behavior, she went to work as a zoo keeper. As the years went by, she shifted gears and "went Corporate" but something was still missing. In 2006, she decided to embark on a career that she knew she would be truly passionate about. It was then that she returned to her hometown of Cape May, NJ and opened up a professional pet sitting and dog walking business. Zoo Sitters was born.

Vanessa is a Certified Professional Pet Sitter through Pet Sitters International and was named Pet Sitters International's Pet Sitter of the Year.  She is the Founder and Network Leader of The Cape May County Network of Professional Pet Sitters and was a certified pet first aid and CPR instructor through Pet Tech from 2013-2017.  Additionally, she was a pet-care columnist for Court House Life magazine and is a professional speaker in the pet sitting industry. She still conducts pet sits in Cape May County, NJ.
