The pet industry is one of the largest, fastest-growing sectors of the American economy. But it lacks the kind of regulatory safeguards found in goods and services for people. And it has not yet been faced with the kind of accountability that strong, independent journalism brings. TCR’s mission is to be that accountability and change. Emily launched TCR in late 2019, financing all start-up costs. Today, TCR’s sole revenue source continues to be its growing list of paying subscribers.
