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.
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 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.
