All pet professionals who care for and about the welfare of these companion animals work hard so responsible pet owners have access to healthy companion animals. The Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) has recently released comprehensive care, transport, and biosecurity standards for small animal breeders and distributors who will make this important goal more attainable.

Oftentimes when delivering testimony, PIJAC staff point out that those of us in the pet field don’t just care ABOUT animals, we care FOR animals. That firsthand knowledge makes our members some of the best sources available for information on best practices and standard operating procedures as well as the likely impact of proposed legislation and regulations on our trade.

Scott Hardin—a biologist, expert on exotic and invasive species and proud owner of a ball python named Ricky (as in Lucy’s husband)—has the kind of insight that comes only with years of experience working at the intersection of science, environmental stewardship and public policy, balancing conservation of fish and wildlife with responsible pet ownership.

In getting up to speed on all of the issues around responsible reptile ownership, I am lucky to have as my teachers leading reptile specialists right here in the PIJAC family. When it comes to reptiles, one such authority is John Mack, founder and CEO of Reptiles by Mack and one of the world’s leading experts on breeding and keeping reptiles.

I would like to personally share my stance on reptile ownership and ensure both owners of reptiles and the organizations that support them that as President and CEO of PIJAC I will work to protect reptiles as fiercely as any other pet type.
