Welcome to the Australian Pet Care Association

The Australian Pet Care Association INC is the peak representative body in Australia for the Pet Resort/Kennel’s, Cattery’s, Doggy Day Care and Dog Training industry. Established in 1992 as a non-profit organisation by a group of independent kennel owners, the Association has been successfully providing members with essential information, help and support to operate their businesses efficiently and effectively. With members throughout Australia, the Association represents business owners from an extensive area.

Aims of the Association

  • To promote a high
    standard of animal care
    within our profession
  • To promote a higher
    professional image
    for our members
  • To act as a lobby group on issues
    that concern or threaten our
    members and their livelihoods.

In consideration of our aim we strive to promote, protect and foster good relations between all levels of government, those working in the industry and the pet owning public. Our members abide by a code of practice that helps protect animals in our care.

Through this website pet owners can access information and details on pet boarding, doggy day care and dog training in order to choose a kennel, cattery, day care or trainer that are Association members and are bound to uphold the Associations “code of ethics”.
