Winners Revealed for the 2022 Pet Community Awards – Western Edition

Phil Klaassen – Pan Pacific Pet, Christine Carrière – PIJAC CEO, Ken Kasdorf – Pan Pacific Pet, Craig Brummell -PIJAC Board Chair

Congratulations to the 2022 western region Pet Community Awards Winners.  We had an amazing group of candidates this spring, inspiring over 2000 people to vote. What has made these awards even more special this year is that we could announce them live at our first in-person show in 2 years!  The pandemic may have changed many things, but what has not changed is the determination of pet professionals to help ensure the wellbeing of our pets and also that others have what they need to support pet families.  This year’s Pet Community Awards sponsor is none other than Pan Pacific Pet . This forward-thinking, fun-loving company with a community-minded staff makes them the perfect sponsor for the awards. Thank you Pan for helping us recognize the best and brightest in the Canadian pet sector.
