OUR NON-DISCRIMINATION STATEMENT
The statement below is all inclusive and extends to the association and its operations
The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) was founded in 1989 by a small group of pet sitters. Four years later, NAPPS incorporated as a nonprofit membership organization in order to provide support and serve as a voice
for the expanding industry.
Recognizing the tremendous need for service dogs among veterans of the United States military, the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) has selected K9s For Warriors as its official charity.
