NEWINGTON, Conn. (OCT 1, 2013) — Pet
insurance is critical for pet owners so they are not left in the cold when
facing high vet bills. The Connecticut Humane Society encourages all pet owners
to consider purchasing pet insurance for their companion animals. CT Humane includes a complimentary,
30-day 24PetWatch health insurance policy as part of the adoption benefits
package for cat and dog adopters. This service is made possible through a
partnership with PetHealth Inc., North America's leading provider of animal management
software, microchip identification, data related services for companion
animals, and pet health insurance.
PetHealth’s 24PetWatch Pet Insurance Program has become the largest and most widely used pet insurance program offered in the animal welfare community.
Phil Tremblay, adopter of two cats named Hamlet and Othello from the Connecticut Humane Society, was the 5 millionth recipient of the complimentary 30-day insurance from PetHealth.
As part of the celebration of this event, PetHealth awarded Phil Tremblay two 1-year policies of health insurance for his cats. “One of the benefits of adopting from the Connecticut Humane Society is a 30-day health insurance policy from 24PetWatch for your new companion,” said Tremblay. “Shortly after I had adopted Hamlet and Othello, I was informed that I was the 5 millionth person to receive the gift insurance. I shocked but very happy to find that the folks at 24PetWatch were going to cover my new friends for a year at no cost to me.”
"We were pleased to learn one of our adopters received the 5-millionth shelter provided complimentary Gift of Pet Insurance administered by our friends at 24PetWatch Pet Insurance," said Gordon Willard, Executive Director of the Connecticut Humane Society. "Pet insurance is a great product to help owners when their pet experiences a serious health condition or accident. We see unprepared owners in our clinic every day who struggle to provide care for their sick pets, and would have benefited from pet health insurance. We encourage all pet owners to consider 24PetWatch's products to help care for their pet."
