The Professional Animal Certification Care Council (PACCC) says it is pleased to announce that Anna Torres-Radle has assumed the chair position for the association’s board of directors. Founded to improve pet safety through independent certification of pet care professionals, PACCC’s ranks continue to grow as it enters its third cycle of certification testing this month.
As PACCC’s new chair, Torres-Radle, owner of Fieldstone Animal Inn in Millersville, Maryland, brings a wealth of industry experience to the organization, according to PACCC. While living in Germany, she entered the world of dog training with Schutzhund clubs. That love for animals and hobby turned into a career in the pet care industry when she purchased Fieldstone Animal Inn in 2004. Using her 20 years of business experience, in combination with her love of pets, Torres-Radle reinvented a 40-year-old “mom and pop” business into an outstanding professional pet care facility. PACCC’s new chair is active in the pet care industry and dedicated to continuing education in the industry for both herself and her employees. She has created a business that cares not only for pets, but owners and the demands of their busy lives, as well.
“Thanks to industry leaders like Anna who have both outstanding pet care expertise and a tireless dedication to helping make all pets safe, PACCC’s pet safety mission is becoming a reality,” said PACCC co-founder Susan Briggs. “We are thrilled to have her at the helm as the number of PACCC certified professionals grows and we approach key milestones for the organization.”
