Local Business Woman Ann Marie Hoff Is a Finalist for Pet Industry Woman of the Year Award.

The Women in the Pet Industry Network (WIPIN) recognizes extraordinary women in five pet business categories.

Tucson, Arizona (August 4, 2017) – Local business woman Ann Marie Hoff of AnnHoff.com has been named a finalist in the fifth annual Pet Industry Woman of the Year Award competition.

Hoff who has been in business for 18 years was nominated in the Advocate category. The other award categories are: Solopreneur, Entrepreneur, Corporate, and Rising Star.

The overall Pet Industry Woman of the Year will be chosen from the winners of these five categories. Winners will be announced Sept. 26th during an evening ceremony at the Women in the Pet Industry Conference and Awards Show in Portland, Oregon.  


A panel of four independent judges reviewed and scored nominations for applicants in the five categories. This year’s judges included a director of a non profit organization, a founder of a successful pet organization, a COO of a design firm, and a director of a top women’s scholarship organization.

Hoff will participate in a round table discussion during the WIPIN conference, which runs Sept. 24th through Sept. 26th at the Embassy Suites in Portland.

“The Pet Industry Women of the Year Awards were designed to recognize the amazing females who dedicate their time and talents to improving the lives of all pets – dogs, cats, birds, fish, horses and exotics – and their parents/guardians,” said Shawna Schuh, president of WIPIN.

These awards are a celebration of women who have made highly successful careers in the pet industry: “They shine in large part because they are so passionate about helping women as well as pets. Finalist, Ann Marie Hoff is perfect example! It is exciting to honor her and other women with a genuine calling to make the pet industry stronger.”
