PIJAC and a coalition of small business owners stopped a bill that would have devastated pet retailers and breeders in Virginia, and successfully lobbied state Senators to amend another bill so that it protected ethical breeders and held lawbreaking breeders accountable.
As 2017 rolls on, PIJAC has launched two new tools to keep the industry informed as to what’s happening in the exciting world of legislative and regulatory debate.
PIJAC President and CEO Mike Bober appeared on a prominent New Jersey radio show to discuss how the responsible pet industry is being targeted by a Democratic state Senator running for governor.
The U.S. pet industry is paws down--and fins, claws, scales, and wings down--an important and significant contributor to the U.S economy as evidenced by the findings of a recently announced study at the Pet Industry Leadership Conference on the economic impact of the U.S. pet industry.
From January 30 to February 2, PIJAC and hundreds of other leading groups and individuals will gather at the second annual Pet Industry Leadership Conference (PILC) in Laguna Beach, California, to arm the pet industry for a successful 2017.
In fact, according to First Pet by the Associated Press, the “number 400 is close to the many animals and other creatures that crept, crawled, plodded, padded, or hoofed their way into the history of the White House and the presidency.”
