2020 was a difficult year for so many and it forced a lot of us to re-think how we live our lives and how we run our businesses. Ahead of the pandemic, we began a new chapter and so in addition to all the curveballs from 2020, we came together to bring you the evolution of Vancouver Island Animal Training Association...The Professional Animal Care and Training Association (PACTA BC).

We are still busy behind the scenes writing and gathering content but we're thrilled to have a bright, clean, modern online presence to go with our new vision and mission! As you look around be sure to jot down your notes and suggestions to share with the Marketing Committee

You'll find a wealth of resources for both professionals and individuals, a directory of animal care and training professionals who offer services, and a multitude of ways to get involved, from events, to sponsorship, or volunteering. 

Current members recently received an email that has more information about your membership and how to access and maintain your profile on our new site. 

Find us on Facebook and help us spread the word by sharing this with your networks!


We would like to give a special thanks to Victoria of Two West Digital. She helped make our vision a reality!
