Maine Pet Care Professionals That We Recommend

< Updated 19NOV19 >

< A Short Link for this page –  http://bit.ly/MEPetPros >

Before recommending another pet care professional or pet-related business or non-profit organization, I need to know that when I do so that they will NEVER intentionally use or recommend anything designed to cause a pet pain or fear. Preferably I will know this based on personal experience with someone, but I may also rely on their being a member of The Pet Professional Guild (PPG) as their membership requires them to abide by the  PPG’s Guiding Principles.

The pet care professionals listed below are all individuals in Maine that are either members of the PPG or that I know are committed to the philosophy of No Pain, No Force, and No Fear.

When looking for a pet care professional, I recommend that you use the Find A Professional feature at the PPG website.

If you are a pet care professional or pet-related business or organization in Maine and want to be included in this, please contact me.

Membership in the PPG and the corresponding compliance with The Guiding Principles are a critical factor in determining who I recommend.  – Don Hanson, The Woof Meow Show, & Green Acres Kennel Shop.
