The Pet Industry Association Australia
The Pet Industry Association is the only industry association created to represent all businesses in the pet industry in Australia. Since 1979 when we formed as the PIJAC, we have become a peak organisation which aims to create an environment of best practice principles and ongoing learning for improved technology and systems in the pet industry. The Pet Industry Association is run by members, for its members and offers a voice for all who join by liaising with governments, animal welfare agencies, as well as pet and animal groups both nationally and internationally. We are represented on government steering committees, consultation and advisory groups on pet ownership, and industry issues around Australia.
The Pet Industry Association believes that pets are essential for a healthy society, and that those who can responsibly own and care for a pet should have the chance to do so. We believe that the welfare of animals is paramount, and demand exacting standards from our members relating to the care, management and trade in companion animals.
PIAA is a member of the Australian Companion Animal Council and is represented on and works with Aquatic committees nationally, including OFMJG and the NSW Ornamental Fish Reference Group, Animal Welfare Advisory Committees in QLD, NSW, NT and the ACT, the Domestic Animal Management Implementation Committee in Victoria and the Dog & Cat Management Board in South Australia. We've also worked closely with the governments in QLD, NSW and SA on pet shop codes of practice. PIAA also holds a seat on the NSW Government's Companion Animals Taskforce.
