Governor Parsons Declares the 2nd Week in March "National Pet Breeders Week"

Earlier this year, Governer Mike Parsons passed a bill to recognize the 2nd full week in March as a statewide holiday. The full text of the bill reads:

"The second full week in March is hereby designated as "Pet Breeders Week" in Missouri. Citizens of this state are encouraged to participate in appropriate events and activities in recognition of ethical and responsible pet breeders throughout our state for the joy they bring to pet owners."

MPBA is thrilled to announce that their Annual Educational Conference is always held on the 2nd weekend of March and coincides with the new holiday. MPBA invites you to come and join them in their celebration of Missouri Pet Breeders Week at their conference on March 10-11, 2023.

Remember to get your membership for 2024 and get in our 2024 Breeders Directory. We have over 100,000 views on our website a year, you don't want to miss out on being seen by potential customers.
