WPA Good Works: How America’s Family Pet Expo Gives Back
Did you know? By participating in America’s Family Pet Expo, you’re securing the pet industry’s future and the well-being of the animals it serves. America’s Family Pet Expo is a non-profit event produced by the World Pet Association (WPA). Each year, WPA donates as much as 70% of event space. Over 8,000 pets have been adopted over the years as a result of America’s Family Pet Expo. WPA also reinvests proceeds from the show right back into the pet industry through the WPA Good Works program. Proceeds support:
Purdue University Standards for Breeding Dog Welfare
As part of its commitment to Good Works, WPA is a founding sponsor of the Purdue University Voluntary Standards for Breeding Dog Care and Welfare. Designed to promote and continuously improve canine well-being, this program develops and tests rigorous, science-based, voluntary standards for the care and welfare of breeding dogs and creates a third-party auditing and certification process for dog breeders.
