Washington, D.C. – The Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) is pleased to announce that distinguished scientist Scott Hardin will be joining PIJAC as a consultant effective July 1, 2012. “Scott Hardin’s extensive experience with exotic and invasive species is a tremendous asset to PIJAC,” stated President and CEO of PIJAC, Mike Canning. “Mr. Hardin will work closely with the PIJAC legislative department in our continuous mission to ensure the rights of exotic and aquatic pet owners. Hailing from Florida, Mr. Hardin has instant credibility with other state regulators that could seek to limit the rights of people to responsibly own reptiles and other exotic pets,” added Canning.
