The Selling Point

Leading pet industry organizations pledge to overturn pet sale ban

In a recent press release sent to us from the Impetus Agency, we learned that four leading pet industry organizations have joined forces and pledged $125,000 to overturn pet sale ban in Phoenix, AZ.

The American Pet Products Association(APPA), the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council(PIJAC), the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA), and the World Pet Association(WPA) have collectively donated $125,000 to support a lawsuit challenging the sale of dogs and cats in retail pet stores in Phoenix.

According to APPA President and CEO, Bob Vetere, these lawsuits are a threat to our industry and “by working together to help overturn these types of bans, we can use this opportunity to establish better standards for both breeders and stores.”
