We at the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) know that pets play an important role in our lives. The benefits of pets are endless...

...from companionship to reducing stress and blood pressure to increasing a child’s sense of responsibility, compassion and promoting an interest in conservation. That’s why the vast majority of American families have one or more pets.

The human-animal bond has been studied for years, and that bond is beneficial for pets and people alike. Owning a pet is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. Pets add to the quality of our lives. Pets make us happy. Pets make us healthy. It is PIJAC’s goal to make sure that pets are well-taken care of by pet owners and the industry, so we can all enjoy pet ownership well into the future.

PIJAC’s mission is to:

  • PROMOTE responsible pet ownership and animal welfare
  • FOSTER environmental stewardship &
  • ENSURE the availability of pets
