The journey of PetCert was born from a frustrated non-profit rescue director, volunteers, shelter directors, caring animal control officers, a breeder dog show leader and foster parents. The frustration grew from increased news reports of animal cruelty, adoptable animals dying in shelters at alarming rates and the need for a safe secure way to place companion pets in their own forever homes. We started a focus group with professionals from all forms of animal welfare. We brought all of the concerns and needs of safer placement measures to the table. And the co-creative result was PetCert!
