Podcast Episode 185: Wedding Day Pet Care with the Founder of FairyTail Pet Care

Get to know Ilana Karcinski, the co-founder of FairyTail Pet Care. About 8 years ago, Ilana and her best friend Kelly Maronpot worked at a hotel in Florida. While planning events and weddings at the hotel, they realized there were a lot of improvements that could be made to the wedding day pet care experience.

It’s more and more popular to include dogs in weddings, but with all your loved ones attending as guests or in the bridal party, who’s going to look after the dog?

Ilana and Kelly started FairyTail Pet Care to be your dog’s plus one! In the last few years, they’ve refined their services to give the best possible experience to pets and their people. Plus, they’ve gone viral on TikTok with tons of videos getting over 1 million views and flooding their inbox with inquiries to provide pet care at weddings around the world.
