Petsecure pays it forward in Calgary

Petsecure’s most recent Pay It Forward event occurred at Panorama Hills Animal Hospital in Calgary, AB.
Panorama Hills Animal Hospital believes that pet health insurance saves lives and they recommend that all of their clients look into insurance as a financial option for their pet.


Vanessa is a single mom of a beautiful 9-month-old baby girl and Millie, a pitbull/German Shepherd mix. She recently moved to Calgary, during which time Millie tore both of her ACL cruciates (a common knee injury in medium to large size, active dogs). Knee surgeries are expensive, but Vanessa knew that Millie’s life is worth it and will make it work no matter the cost.

When Petsecure decided to breathe new life into the Pay It Forward Program, Territory Manager Jennifer Dooley was excited to present the opportunity to one of her top clinics in the Calgary area. Once she spoke to Panorama Hills Animal Hospital and presented the opportunity for them, they knew exactly which client they wanted to put forward for the event.


Millie was scheduled for surgery on Feb. 24, and Vanessa made an appointment for the discharge instructions and to pick her up at 4 p.m. Jennifer arrived at the clinic approximately 15 minutes prior to Vanessa’s appointment and briefed the staff on how the event would occur.


Vanessa received all of Millie’s discharge instructions and proceeded to pay for Millie’s first knee surgery when Jennifer approached her and let her know that we were going to give her $500 towards Millie’s surgery bill! Jennifer also left a gift basket which included some pet supplies for Millie, a Safeway gift card and a Toys R Us gift card. Vanessa was so excited and grateful for such an amazing gift!
