During these extraordinary times, PIDA is here to assist and support the pet care community.
We are committed to support the pet care community in the face of this crisis. Our focus will be on providing you with information you need to protect your business, your employees and your customers. We’ll do that through frequent email updates, web posts and webinars.
Please let us know what your challenges are so that we can gather resources to provide solutions.
The pet care community has a special role to play in helping the world get through this crisis. Pets are our comfort in good times and in bad and they will help us feel a little less isolated and fearful. Our responsibility is to support the pet products supply chain to help our pets stay healthy, safe and happy. We at PIDA pledge to do all we can to help you fulfill that responsibility.
