APA Approval for Pet Owners
to APA Approval
A letter in 2008 from an angry pet owner made a big change for us here at the
APA. This woman had a serious problem with a pet care business she had recently
used. One paragraph stood out and called us to action.
with recent government regulations, you cannot tell if a business owner is kind
to the pets in their care, is a fair and honest business person or that their
facility is a safe and humane environment for
my pet. What are you doing about it?"
Since 1991 APA Members have turned to us to recommend products, services and
facilities. This is not something we have taken lightly. APA Members know
they can count on us for an unbiased position on all pet issues. We do not
accept corporate donations or sell advertising at our web sites or newsletters;
this allows us to remain unbiased in our decisions.
The Approval Department was made to meet this demand for all pet owners, not
just our members. The APA's ethics are the highest in the industry and this
department is a perfect example. Our approval fee is solely to cover the process
of approval, and approval is never guaranteed. We encourage feedback from all
consumers and every feedback form is personally addressed by an APA Employee.
