Certification Council Names New Board Member




(PRESS RELEASE) The Professional Animal Certification Care Council has announced that Gray Moore has joined the its board of directors. Moore was among the first to achieve the council’s level of Certified Professional Animal Care Manager.

As the president and founder of Dog Tired Services, her pet care facility in Charleston, SC, Moore fosters a culture of pet safety and certification. Currently, three additional members of her staff are certified. The council recently completed its sixth cycle of testing and will offer one more opportunity this fall for pet care professionals to become certified in 2018.

“PACCC’s ranks of independently certified pet care providers continue to grow thanks to professionals like Gray and her team at Dog Tired Services,” said board chair Anna Torres-Radle. “Gray brings to the PACCC board a lifetime dedicated to improving the lives of animals and we are thrilled to have her experience and enthusiasm on our pet safety mission.”

The council was founded by industry leaders to bring independent certification to the pet care services industry, an important step for a rapidly growing, easy to enter industry frequently damaged by news reports of serious pet accidents and deaths. It offered its first certification exams in late 2016 and has surpassed 100 certified professionals. Sitting for the  exams requires an application process establishing level of education, work experience in the pet care industry, and supporting letters of reference. The council offers three levels of certification, Certified Professional Animal Care Provider, Manager and Operator.
