Humane pet care services

In an unregulated industry, how do you know who to trust?

Pet services like grooming, dog daycare and walking, and pet boarding are unregulated in B.C.

In consultation with animal welfare and industry experts, the BC SPCA developed draft AnimalKind standards for pet services that were open for public comment in May 2022.

Thank you to pet guardians and pet services staff and operators who provided their feedback. You are helping shape a safe future for the industry!

The public comment period is now closed, and an updated version of the draft standards will be available in the coming months.
