We Take the Safety, Care and Wellbeing of your Pet Seriously
We understand that you have many choices when it comes to pet care providers. When considering K9 Club for the care of your pet, we recognize that identifying the most qualified, knowledgeable, and committed professionals to care for your furry family members is very important to you. To provide you and your pet an unparalleled experience, the leadership at K9 Club are certified with the Professional Animal Care Certification Council (PACCC).
PACCC’s mission is to help pet parents everywhere find the safest facilities for their pets by certifying those that meet the highest standards. The leadership team at K9 Club are certified and abide by the PACCC code of ethics, placing the welfare of animals above all other business considerations.
The reality is that the pet care industry has a low threshold for entry. There is virtually no standard regulation or education required to open a pet care services business. PACCC says it’s time to turn the tide and provide a trusted source of validation to ensure that the level of care, knowledge and skillset your pet receives is paramount. K9 Club’s General Manager, Mary Hansen and Manager, Lindsay Strait have engaged with PACCC and both possess the PACCC Professional Animal Care Provider (CPACP) certification. Their knowledge is used to pioneer, facilitate and foster a path to teach all K9 Club staff members the highest standard of care principals adopted by the PACCC.
