Giving Back to our Members and the Pet Community
As a not-for-profit organization, we continually reinvest in our members and the broader pet community. The WPA Good Works program was established to help fund organizations that are working for the good of pets and the pet industry as a whole, with over $4 million donated in the last decade.
Our legislative mission, working through PIJAC, our advocacy partner, is to:
- PROMOTE animal well-being and responsible pet ownership
- FOSTER environmental stewardship &
- ENSURE the availability of healthy pets
The mission of NAIA is to promote the welfare of animals, to strengthen the human-animal bond, and safeguard the rights of responsible animal owners, enthusiasts and professionals through research, public information and sound public policy.
The Pet Leadership Council is made up of pet industry leaders, veterinarians, university faculty, and advocates for pets and those who serve and support them by promoting responsible pet ownership and educating the public on efforts to improve the health and wellbeing of companion animals.
