Outstanding Pet Care Learning Center (OPCLC)

Because Northwind Pet Care Center is dedicated to the health to the health and safety of the animals in our care, we are pleased to announce the installation of PetAirapy at our facility. PetAirapy is an air purification system that cleans and sanitizes the air to help eliminate airborne pathogens that cause diseases. It also helps eliminate irritating allergens. Pets in our care breathe clean, purified air to keep them healthier and happier.
PetAirapy also helps naturally eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and odors without the need for harsh chemicals made with synthetic fragrance that may make the air quality worse by simply masking odors.
PetAirapy works with the power of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI aka UV-C). This type of UV is completely safe and has been used in hospital environments for over 100 years.
We invested in PetAirapy specifically because our company specializes exclusively in animal care, its proprietary sizing method kills 99.9% of airborne and surface pathogens, controls odors, and because nothing matters more to us than happy, healthy, and safe pets.
