ABOUT P.U.P.P.I.

People United to Protect Pet Integrity, Inc. (“PUPPI”) is a coalition of New York State pet store owners, and other members of the pet retail industry. The 501(c)(6) non-profit was created in 2017 to create a unified voice for not only the people in the pet retail industry, but also the pets themselves. PUPPI has the best interest of pets at heart, and strives to ensure that members of the industry act in conformity with these interests. PUPPI’s members must be in good-standing and compliant with federal, state, and local laws.

OUR MISSION
