The Adoptsecure program delivers a six-week complimentary trial insurance policy that provides pet owners with initial pet health insurance coverage valued at up to $500 after they adopt a dog or cat from participating shelters. Shelters receive onsite support from a designated Petsecure Territory Manager, along with support for additional wellness programs.

"Each year we take in thousands of animals, and a large portion of them are brought in by owners who can’t afford medical care for their pet,” said Carrie Fritz, Executive Director of Calgary Humane Society. “Pet insurance can protect owners against unexpected veterinary costs while providing the necessary treatment and care for their pet. We’re excited to partner with Petsecure to ensure the health and wellbeing of adopted pets."

"We have had a longstanding relationship with the Calgary Humane Society, and are proud to be selected, yet again, as their exclusive partner," said Rod Cunniam, Divisional Vice-President of Petsecure. “Calgary Humane Society touches over 7,000 animals a year and provides over 12,000 health exams and procedures.Together, we can provide humane care and protection."

With over 1.2 million pets protected, Petsecure offers different solutions to suit the unique needs of individual pets. The pet health insurance plans include coverage for veterinary visits, dental coverage as well as alternative and preventative care. Petsecure works to provide a variety of plans that help to protect pets and to give owners peace of mind.
