Good Luck Candidates!

Next round of independent certification exams start this week

Are you ready? Good luck to all of our CPACP and CPACM candidates during the upcoming exam period, October 14-28th. We can’t wait to add you to the rolls of our Certified Directory which we’ll be upgrading shortly to a searchable format.

To All the Heroes

To all of the tireless shelter workers, volunteer workers and fosters, and pet boarding facilities who have stepped up to save dogs…and cats and pigs and horses and all manner of animals in the path of unprecedented natural disasters, thank you. It has been a herculean effort by many recently in the wake of historic hurricanes and wildfires. You are heroes!

New Sponsor Badges!

We recently revamped our PACCC Sponsor badges and added a new level. If you’re a current PACCC sponsor and have not received the new version yet, please be sure to let us know. Not a sponsor?

Congratulations, Gingr!

And thanks for the shout out…

Congratulations to PACCC sponsor, Gingr, maker of pet services software. Gingr was recently acquired by Togetherwork. Check out what they said in the press release announcing the acquisition:

“We are happy to be part of Togetherwork and align well with its focus on group management,” said Aaron Nichols, Co-founder. “Gingr is a business that supports the pet owner community and is committed to improving the quality and reliability of service providers in this industry. Being part of Togetherwork enables us to step up our partnership with the Professional Animal Care Certification Council (PACCC).”

Wow! We couldn’t do it without our amazing sponsors like Gingr. Thank you for the support and recognizing the importance of our pet safety mission.
