More than $64,000 will be given this year to help animals in need
Petsecure is helping the BC SPCA to fight animal cruelty by contributing $15,870 to the organization. The presentation was made to the BC SPCA at their annual Scotiabank Paws for a Cause walk in Vancouver, on Sunday, as a donation to the cause and as part of an ongoing partnership. The donation from Petsecure will help the BC SPCA assist more than 41,000 animals in distress and need through their 42 locations.
This year, Petsecure has contributed $64,427.50 to the organization, through the 2014 Scotiabank Paws for a Cause walk, National Cupcake Day, sponsorships and donations. Petsecure has been a supporter of the BC SPCA since 2010. Part of the money donated this year is from Petsecure’s Adoptsecure program where they work with the BC SPCA to offer a free six week trial of pet health insurance to clients for any newly adopted pets. Petsecure has similar partnerships with shelters and SPCAs across Canada.
As part of the Paws for a Cause event, participants walked with their pets in Stanley Park, in Vancouver as well as in 32 communities across B.C. to raise funds and awareness to fight animal cruelty and to help abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals. It is the largest event to help fight animal cruelty in B.C.
“Petsecure is a true ambassador for animals in need. Their care and compassion shows in so many ways,” said BC SPCA Chief Development Officer Rosemary Conder. “Petsecure’s continued generosity will help us care for tens of thousands of animals across B.C. this year.”
Over the past 25 years, Petsecure has grown to become Canada’s largest and most trusted pet health insurance provider. It’s a position the company could not have achieved without its longstanding partnerships with veterinarians, breeders and shelters.
“It is great that we partner with the BC SPCA to encourage pet owners towards the value in pet health insurance,” said Rod Cunniam, Petsecure’s interim President and COO. “Events like Paws for a Cause are a great opportunity to showcase the relationship we have with our shelters and SPCA’s across Canada. The health and well-being of Canadian pets is always a priority, so it’s our privilege to provide this donation to help the BC SPCA fight animal cruelty and to help animals in need across B.C.”
