Quality pet care in your home since 2002
Meet Sue Villella, owner of Zookeepers Pet Sitting
My name is Sue Villella and I am a Licensed Veterinary Technician, Pet Sitter, Dog walker and all around animal lover.
My husband and I moved to Las Vegas, from Northern California, in 1999. Like so many other “transplants” we were seeking new careers and more affordable living conditions. We really found ourselves here and are proud to call Las Vegas our home. We currently share our home with 1 dog: “Vita” (an 11 year old shepherd mix), and 2 kitties: “Georgie” (15 years old) and “Mouse” (18 months old).
As with most animal lovers, my experience with animals dates back to my childhood. Growing up, we had various species of pets, from rats and fish to cats and dogs. Our parents instilled in us a love and respect for all animals, wildlife, and people alike. I love them for these beautiful life lessons.
I incorporated my love of animals into a profession in 2004 when I started working at a reputable Veterinary Hospital here in Las Vegas. In 2006 I graduated from the College of Southern Nevada with a degree in Veterinary Technology, and acquired my Veterinary Technician License. I was employed as the head technician for several years. I spent all my extra time Pet Sitting and Dog Walking for Lorrie DeNiro (previous owner of Zookeepers Pet Sitting).
In April of 2012 I took over ownership of Zookeepers Pet Sitting, Las Vegas. My business has grown steadily over the last 6 years, primarily by word-of-mouth. I really love what I do and I believe it comes through in my work. I enjoy all the various personalities of each individual pet I watch and feel part of the family, treating each pet as if it were my own. I have celebrated the acquisition of a new puppy or kitten and mourned the loss of the elderly ones who pass on.
My main objective as a pet sitter is to keep the pets happy and healthy while the pet parents are away and to allow the owner to relax during their vacation, not having to worry about their pets at home.
I am an active member of Pet Sitters International (PSI), and Southern Nevada Association of Professional Pet sitters (SNAPPS). I am licensed with the State of Nevada, Clark County, and the City of Las Vegas. I am Insured and bonded with Century Surety Company through Pet Sitters International. I am also background checked annually. Any assistance I may employ is thoroughly background checked as well.
I keep my hands in Veterinary Medicine by continuing to work (on-call) with 3 top-notch Veterinarians. I attend the Veterinary conference every year to fulfill my continuing Ed requirements and maintain my Technician license in good standing.
I believe I can offer services a cut above because of my education and experience as a Licensed Veterinary Technician and because of the working relationship I have with my Veterinarians. This is an added benefit that I can pass onto you.
If you are in need of an honest, mature, knowledgeable, and reliable Pet Sitter give me a call.
I look forward to meeting with you and providing the best quality care for your pets.
