Effective 3/7/2016 we became an authorized vendor for the Government. We have met all of their requirements and criteria and are now effectively in all of the various purchasing systems they use. We are an available vendor for all government entities including Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and any other entity that utilizes working canines and utilize the GSA / SAM.gov purchasing guidelines.
This is a big deal for us and we could not be more thrilled. There are strict training requirements and performance standards that need to be met prior to becoming a vendor. We are pleased and humbled that we met those requirements.
We believe that the impact on our day-to-day business will see minimal impact. Our goal is as it's always been and that is to continue going out on a daily basis to help restore relationships between dogs and their families. We believe that is our mission and what we are great at doing. It's what has allowed us to grow and continue growing and a high rate and we will never abandon this idea because at the core it's who we are as a company.
So what does all of this mean?
We believe it means that we will continue growing at even a higher rate. We will share some big announcements when we are able. We have a lot of exciting things happening coming up and we can not wait to share them with our amazing clients!
Thank you all for your continued support.
