Animal Welfare Is Everyone’s Business

Welcome to the “Animal Welfare is Everyone’s Business page!”TM Every day, pet businesses throughout Canada help enhance the wellbeing of pets and pet families in a variety of ways. The purpose of this campaign is to highlight the great things Canadian pet businesses do to make a difference for animals in their communities. This page offers an opportunity for businesses to share their stories and inspire others.

We also works with partner organizations to promote their efforts in the name of pet health and the health of pet families.  Each year PIJAC Canada collects pet food and product donations at each of our four trade shows across Canada.  These donations are directed at local food banks and agencies that deal directly with pet families.  You can also read more about what the association does to impact the wellbeing of pets in Canada checking out our Helping Canada’s Pets page.

We have taken this idea and began to spread the word through the industry to retailers, manufacturers, distributors, vets, SPCA’s and municipal officials and the feedback has been terrific.

This year we will be presenting six Animal Welfare is Everyone’s Business awards at our annual trade shows. Nominees are selected by members of the pet industry and voted on by other businesses and the public. Our goal is to publicly highlight the fantastic work done by dedicated business owners in the name of improving pet welfare and supporting pet families.

We are also on the lookout for any stories about amazing businesses fostering responsible pet ownership and the ongoing advancement of pet care. By sharing these stories we want to inspire others to take up the cause and follow in their footsteps.
