The American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA)
is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2008. APPMA has been
promoting, developing and advancing pet ownership, the pet
products industry and its members since 1958. Today, APPMA
is made up of over 1,000 pet product manufacturers, their
representatives, importers and livestock suppliers.
"I am truly proud to be part of this success," said APPMA
president Bob Vetere. "Celebrating 50 years is a major
accomplishment and I thank our outstanding staff, partners and
member companies for their support over the years."
Over the years APPMA has also established a Government and
Regulatory Affairs Department. This committee helps
monitor and respond to legislation and regulations. Most
notably, APPMA's Government Affairs team played a key role in
the passing of the Minor Use and Minor Species Animal Health
Act (MUMS). In 2005, APPMA introduced the PAL (Pets Add Life)
PSA Campaign designed to encourage people to appreciate the

APPMA will commemorate their 50th anniversary at Global Pet
