Local Celebrities Decorate for Pet Charities

by Petsecure Pet Health Insurance | Dec 18, 2012

Organized by Petsecure, local celebrities will battle to win $1,000 for a Manitoba pet welfare organization.  


WINNIPEG, December 18, 2012 –On Thursday, December 20, 2012, Petsecure pet health insurance invites the community to help celebrate the holidays by cheering on local celebrities in a gingerbread doghouse decorating contest. The contest takes place at The Forks in the Tower Atrium over the lunch hour. Petsecure will donate $1,000 to the organization chosen by the winner, who will also receive bragging rights for the year.


“It’s sad to think of any pet without a home during the holiday season, and the only thing that makes it better is knowing what an excellent job the animal welfare organizations in our province do,” said Bill Skubovius, Vice President, Business Development at Petsecure. “We’re happy to use our doghouse decorating contest as a way to give a boost to one lucky organization that’s providing a loving, temporary home for someone’s future pet.”  


In addition to providing Canadian pet owners with pet health insurance, Petsecure proudly participates in many charitable events, fundraising programs, and educational initiatives. Since it was founded more than 20 years ago, Petsecure has given millions of dollars to the pet community. It also provides financial and other support to many animal shelters across Canada and runs programs such as Adoptsecure: a six-week pet insurance trial given at no cost to many pets adopted from animal shelters across the country.
