Forum: State is right to regulate animal rescues, shelters

By Laura “Peach” Reid

For the last several years, Connecticut legislators have been working to protect pets and consumers from unethical actors in the companion animal industry trade. As chairwoman of the Board for PIJAC — the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council, which advocates for legislation to connect healthy pets with loving owners — and the CEO of Fish Mart, Inc., I couldn’t be more pleased with our state leaders for recognizing our collective responsibility to beloved household pets. read more

PIJAC board Chair honored as Woman of Influence by Pet Age
By PIJAC Staff

PIJAC is proud to announce that Laura “Peach” Reid, the first female Chair of our Board of Directors, has been honored as a “Woman of Influence” by Pet Age.

With over 40 years in the responsible pet industry, Peach is well-known for her business leadership and her community service. Currently the President and CEO of Fish Mart, Inc., Reid has served as PIJAC’s Board Chair since March 2016.

“I am grateful to Pet Age for honoring me as a Woman of Influence,” said Reid, who has served on multiple boards in her hometown of Orange, Connecticut, at her alma mater University of New Haven, and elsewhere. “It’s an honor to be in the company of so many women who have helped guide the pet industry to where it is today. I hope that Pet Age’s award will serve as an example of what is possible for women across our industry.”

The Pet Age honor is just the latest for Reid, who in 1998 was honored as a “Woman of Substance” in the Connecticut Post, and received the Connecticut Small Business Person of the Year award in 2001. In 2015, she received PIJAC’s “Chairman’s Award of Excellence” in recognition of her tireless work on issues affecting the entire pet industry at the state and local levels across Connecticut.

“Nobody deserves this honor more than Peach,” said PIJAC President and CEO Mike Bober. “We at PIJAC benefit from her experience and dedication on a daily basis, and her positive influence can be seen throughout the responsible pet industry.”

Dear Valued Clients and Suppliers,

One of my goals as PIJAC’s Chairman of the Board of Directors is to help unify the pet industry and broadly communicate the excellent work we all do.

It is our collective responsibility to continually educate ourselves and our customers on best practices.

To that end, please read the document linked below. I hope you find it not only informative, but in line with your own thinking and practices.

Please know that I, and the PIJAC Board and staff, welcome your thoughts, suggestions and concerns, so feel free to contact me/ us! If you are not a PIJAC member, I also encourage you to join. We need all of us working together, and that includes helping to fund our work (the Board of Directors is all volunteers). (membership tab).
