Vanessa (the woman behind Sophie Says Pet Care) is a lifelong animal lover with over 8 years of experience as a pet sitter and dog walker.

After volunteering at the ASPCA and BARC Shelter for many years, tending to her own pets from kitten- and puppyhood through their golden years, and becoming well-acquainted with the distinct and diverse personalities of her furry clients, she's yet to meet a dog or cat who doesn’t charm her (and vice versa).

Fern is the newest addition to Sophie Says Pet Care. She's a happy-go-lucky, glass-half-full kind of girl with a passion for playing, treats and sleeping (not necessarily in that order).

Sophie (the inspiration behind Sophie Says Pet Care) was an elderly—and very opinionated—black lab mix. Vanessa met her at BARC Shelter when she was a jaunty 5-month-old with a sassy attitude and a bum leg. Her legacy of  galvanizing young dogs to reach their full potential lives on.
