Note About DPP Membership Types
DPP recognizes two types of members – visiting members and supporting members.
- Visiting Members: These members have a Pet Partners Badge with ID, and perform AAI services at one or more facilities. These members are currently registered with the National Pet Partners Organization. Visiting members must provide their PP ID when submitting the registration form.
- Supporting Members: These members do not visit, but are interested in supporting the mission of DPP and receiving communications from us. These members are not required to join the National Pet Partners organization.
The DPP membership fee is $45 for new members (regardless of type) and $25 for renewing members.
