Now open for business, Pets Plus Us embarks on its crusade with a new pet owner community and insurance coverage
OAKVILLE, ON, April 22, 2013 /CNW/ - RSA Canada has launched Pets Plus Us™, a pet owner community and insurance product line focused on delivering pet owner happiness. Pets Plus Us will provide pet owners with the resources, conversations and tools they need to enable them to make the right choices for their pet's well-being.
"In our research, we heard loud and clear that Canadian pet owners want access to tools and information that empowers them to make the best decisions for their pets. That's why we're building a community for pet owners to come together and share experiences, knowledge and tips, and seek out advice from experts," says Randy Valpy, Top Dog at Pets Plus Us.
Pets Plus Us has four coverage options ranging from traditional Accident and Accident & Illness to the pet insurance industry's first stand-alone Wellness Care package - a preventative "prescription" for regular vet care. All coverage includes:
- 4Life Guarantee, which means that once your pet is enrolled with Pets Plus Us™, your policy won't be cancelled, except for non-payment
- Blue-Ribbon Benefits, which includes access to the 24/7 Pet-Poison Helpline®, PetHelpFone™ and more
- AIR MILES® reward miles: Pets Plus Us™ is the only pet insurer to offer AIR MILES.
"We believe that providing Canadian pet owners with the tools and information they need to make the best choices for their pet, and backing that up with innovative products and outrageous customer service is a winning combination," says Valpy. "Our ambition is to champion pet owner happiness, and we're ready with a team of people and pet lovers ready to learn more about you and your pet."
The Pets Plus Us community will grow to include resources that will help pet owners with everything from recovering a lost pet to finding a local dog park to learning more about a specific breed of dog or cat. Pets Plus Us will be a place where pet owners can come to ask a vet a question, learn about how to be a responsible pet owner and even post pictures and videos of their four-legged friends. The community is available to pet owners at petsplusus.com, facebook.com/PetsPlusUsCA and twitter.com/PetsPlusUsCA.
Pets Plus Us is underwritten by Royal & Sun Insurance Company of Canada (RSA), and is part of the RSA Canada Group of companies. RSA is one of Canada's leading home, auto, travel and commercial insurance providers.
