About the Selection Process
Ibby finalists and winners were decided by the Ibbys Selection Committee based on nominations received earlier this year. To meet the initial threshold for a nomination, pet care providers must have been in business for at least three years and a current member of IBPSA for at least six months. Next, nominees were required to submit information reflecting:
- Financial growth in the past year.
- Company description and the vision.
- Company culture.
- How the business excels in animal welfare.
- Education and certifications completed by pet care services business owners and employees.
Based on the categories, smaller pet care business finalists have just as much of an opportunity to take home an award as larger companies. Pet care providers could also nominate up to three industry vendors who they believe are among the best allies for the pet care industry. Ibbys for these premier vendors will also be presented at the event on October 1st.
