Samantha Sanfilippo (Owner)

Samantha has been working with animals for over 8 years. She is a graduate of North Shore Community College’s Animal Care Specialist program and is a certified pet nutrition advocate and pet groomer with experience as a veterinary technician. Staycation Pet Sitting Service, LLC offers an alternative for pet owners whose pets would rather stay, while their owner is away. Samantha provides animals with outstanding care which gives owners peace of mind. There is comfort in knowing that Staycation Pet Sitting Service, LLC is insured and bonded through Pet Sitters Associates LLC. With years of knowledge and experience caring for animals, you will feel worry and stress free on vacation, while your pet is home having their staycation. 

The inspiration for Staycation Pet Sitting Service comes from Samantha’s beloved cat Monkey. Monkey has a history of urinary tract disease and needs at home care when Samantha goes on vacation. That is when Samantha realized that more animals with medical conditions like Monkey need to be cared for in the comfort of their own home while their owner is away.

Monkey now enjoys doing yoga, cuddling with Samantha, and sunbathing. Monkey does not offer pet sitting services as of now. Samantha hopes to train Monkey to be more productive and help with paperwork instead of laying on it, and sleeping on the job.
