Our pet care philosophy is all about adventure!

What makes your business unique?

We are a family owned and operated pet care business! We are a married LGBTQ couple with a passion for pets. Co-owners Heather Mangione and Kasia Piasecka moved to Martha’s Vineyard together in 2018 for other jobs and quickly realized that there was a high demand for professional, quality pet care. We decided to go full-time together in business and never looked back! Al Fresco Tails now has over 300 active clients and we love making all of the pets on the Vineyard very happy. We love what we do and it shows in our work!

What does your business look like?

We have an online presence with an e-commerce shop, and we visit client homes year-round on Martha’s Vineyard to provide pet care.

Why is it important to support businesses like yours?

We are an LGBTQ- and women-owned and operated small business! We are living our dream and absolutely love working with our amazing client families. We have worked extensively with our local SCORE Cape Cod & Islands chapter and love spreading the word about what an incredible program SCORE is for small businesses. We are leaders in our community and active in our local boards of trade. We are an excellent example of two people who took a chance on their passion and made a career out of it!

Do you want to say anything to your customers or guests?

Al Fresco Tails Pet Sitting loves our clients and their adorable furbabies! We are forever thankful to the families that trusted us with their pets from the start and have stuck with us through the growth of our business.
