- to educate owners on the responsibilities of pet ownership

- to undertake original research on the relationship between man and companion animals

- to ensure accurate and reliable information is available to all interested parties on pet-related issues

- to encourage pet ownership in balance with society’s needs, and help owners enjoy their pets

- to provide information on and encourage the correct care of pets.
