Our Advocacy Panel was established to further PPG’s mission by supporting the education of pet guardians and professionals.  We believe it is critical that pet guardians are equipped with the tools they need to ask informed questions of professionals prior to hiring them.  It is also important that PPG members understand the best way and means to advocate for our Guiding  Principles

To effectively reach the largest audience of pet guardians the Advocacy Panel is launching a series of Facebook Live - Expert Panel Discussions. These Facebook Live Discussions will include experts from our panel discussing topical issues important to our audience and mission. 

These sessions will also be podcast to reach an even wider audience.  

How Will This Work?

Hopefully, we will not only advocate and inform but also have some fun along the way and build some great relationships.  We will announce discussion topics at least four weeks before the scheduled air date. Sessions will be moderated by Don Hanson and Niki Tudge and we intend to keep them free flowing giving each panel participant the opportunity to answer key questions and supplement other panelists‘ responses.
