PTA reserves the right to decline any application at its own discretion and to decline applications from those involved in the use of animals for profit. PTA also reserves the right to remove any "approved" individual or company if PTA discovers the listee is not anti-aversives in accordance with our Ethics Statement on our About page. If you'd like more information, please send your questions when inquiring or applying.
A note to the public: You should always perform your own due diligence before electing to work with a person or a company. The sources below have been approved by PTA based on their responses to an interview-style application and on PTA's seeking of publicly accessible evidence that their responses were factual. In some cases PTA may also have direct experience or knowledge of their qualifications or reliability. However since humans may make new decisions at any time, it is up to you to ensure that those to whom you entrust your animals are in fact trustworthy. For this reason, we suggest being present with your pet during services so that you can confirm acceptability and be a great advocate for your pet.
