Using social media as a way to drive the campaign, Petsecure pet insurance’s ‘FURther the Fight’ campaign is encouraging people to ‘like’ them on Facebook and ‘follow’ them on Twitter. With every new friend on both sites, Petsecure pet insurance will donate one dollar to the Ontario Vet College – Pet Trust Fund, in support of pet cancer research.
“As Canada’s leading pet health insurance company, it is our role to bring awareness to such diseases that affect our pets and our families.” says, Randy Valpy, President & CEO of Petsecure pet insurance. “We are strong supporters of the Ontario Vet College and of all the hard work they do for our pet community. Through our website and social media, we’re able to educate thousands of Canadian pet parents about this deadly disease and we’re able to inform them as to how they can make a difference. By joining us, they are collectively contributing towards the success of our ‘FURther the Fight ‘campaign while making a difference in the pet community.”
Last year’s campaign helped to raise over $1,100 for the OVC - Pet Trust Fund. One in three pets will develop cancer in their lifetime. The OVC Pet Trust Fund is dedicated to providing comprehensive cancer research and development for companion pets, while improving the quality of care for sick animals.
