PPAW was created in 2003 by pet sitters, for pet sitters
throughout Wisconsin and neighboring areas.
Members determine our
activities, policies, and funding. Members are encouraged to find and
recommend marketing opportunities in their areas.
ALL money collected goes directly to sponsored
events and marketing. No
single business or business owner profits directly from
membership fees collected.
Private information provided to PPAW is PRIVATE and will not be
sold or distributed outside of this group.
All financial matters are openly reported to
the group, and financial decisions are made through polling.
PPAW has an average of around 30 member
businesses each year. Members are encouraged to act as
professionals in the industry. Members who commit illegal,
unethical, or questionable acts may have their membership
revoked at any time with no refund.
Members of PPAW are
friendly, and welcome new pet sitters who wish to have a
successful start. Members are generous with their time,
and helpful to other member sitters.
If this fits your style of doing business,
please consider joining!

The PPAW organization is an educational organization, and does not
inspect or police member businesses. Our directory of
sitters is provided as a courtesy to users and a service to
members. The Webmaster and the organization, as well as it's
individual members, assume NO liability in making this contact
information available to the general public. We encourage
pet owners to check references and complete extensive research on
any pet sitter prior to hiring.
