Petsecure to Support Pride Winnipeg

by Petsecure Pet Health Insurance | Jun 03, 2013

WINNIPEG MB – May 30, 2013 – Petsecure is sponsoring Pride Winnipeg to support the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community on June 2. As a LAMBDA member (Manitoba’s LGBT Business Chamber), and a LGBT friendly company, Petsecure will bring awareness of responsible pet ownership to benefit pets and pet parents across the board.

 

As a sponsor of Pride Winnipeg, Petsecure will have a booth at the Pride Winnipeg events, where it will provide helpful information on pet health insurance and responsible pet ownership.  

 

“There are 14.5 million dogs and cats in Canada, and as an industry we have less than 1 per cent of those insured with pet insurance,” said Glenn Williams, President and CEO of Petsecure. “Reaching diverse communities can ensure that more pet owners are informed on the benefits of pet health insurance.”

 

Petsecure supports a multicultural and socially inclusive workforce through strong employee engagement programs and sponsorship of animal charities and community events. These opportunities allow it to reach different audiences and gain a better understanding about what’s important to Canadian pet families.

About Pride Winnipeg:

Today, over 30,000 attend the Pride Winnipeg Festival to celebrate its many victories and diverse community, and to remember that there is so much to be proud of and thankful for. Pride Winnipeg has been celebrated annually since 1987, and has evolved from a one-day event into a 10-day festival filled with pride, confidence, fun, colour, music, laughter, optimism, and activism.

Winnipeg Pride is the Pride of the Prairies – one of the largest celebrations of LGBTTQ culture between Toronto and Vancouver. It invites everyone from far and wide to join its welcoming community and celebrate Pride in Winnipeg – the heart of the continent!
