Every breeder on Mawoo Pets is vetted for breeding frequency, health and safety standards, and socialization practices. Our vetting process follows guidelines outlined by the Humane Society of the United States, and we actively screen against breeders that have been reported for poor breeding practices by auditing bodies, including the Horrible Hundred list prepared annually by the Humane Society.
As Mawoo Pets grows, we are continuously expanding our breeder review and auditing processes. By the first quarter of 2023, we plan to conduct an in-person site visit of every breeder in our network, to verify information collected in their interview and onboarding process. Additionally, we are instituting an audit process that will spot-check breeders in our network though randomized site visits.
We believe that breeder education is one of the key enablers of responsible breeding. To this end, our team is developing a Breeder Education Program that will be made freely available to our network of breeders. This program will cover critical topics including health testing of breeding parents and puppies, common illnesses in specific breeds, and how to prepare a safe and comfortable space for your pets.
