In response to the lack of regulation and with input from animal welfare experts and pet services business operators, the BC SPCA created draft AnimalKind pet services standards that were open for public comment in May 2022.

Thanks to the thousands of pet guardians and pet services operators and staff who shared their experiences and provided feedback on the draft standards!
