Promoting reward-based, humane animal care and training in British Columbia.

PACTA BC Mission Statement

  • Promote humane, evidence-based methods of training, behaviour management, and care, and their beneficial long-term effects in animals, by embracing reward-based methods.
  • Increase public awareness and provide education and encouragement of reward-based humane treatment and training of companion animals in British Columbia.
  • Provide networking, mentoring, and continuing education in British Columbia.
  • Facilitate the enhancement of cooperation, trust and respect between people and animals.
  • Investigate whether regulation, or some form of licensing, would ensure humane treatment of animals and protect those who love and live with them.
