1 millionth pet is Zoe, a Corgi and autistic service dog from Chilliwack, B.C.
WINNIPEG, Jan. 6, 2015 /CNW/ - Petsecure has now insured one million pets across Canada in its 25-year history. The 1 millionth pet insured is Zoe, a Corgi and autistic service dog from Chilliwack, B.C.
Zoe's owner James Pernitsky recently adopted her and through Petsecure's Adoptsecure program received a six-week trial of Petsecure's pet health insurance. As the 1 millionth pet insured by Petsecure, Zoe and her owner will receive one year of free Petsecure pet health insurance.
"It is exciting to be the 1 millionth customer," says Pernitsky. "We decided to adopt Zoe and were pleased to know that her health would be protected for the first six weeks. We are grateful to Petsecure for providing pet health insurance to have her health protected for a full year."
Pernitsky says that the nine-month old Corgi will be training as an autistic service dog to provide companionship and support for those with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
