WINNIPEG, April 23 /CNW/ - Petsecure pet health insurance is happy to
celebrate Pet Parent's Day(SM) on April 26, 2009 in partnership with VPI Pet
Insurance. Pet Parent's Day recognizes those who love their pets and consider
them our companions, our best friends and part of the family.
To celebrate devoted pet parents, Petsecure has created free electronic
greeting cards to share with other pet parents. Senders have the ability to
choose a design, a greeting and include a personal message. These free
greeting cards can be sent through Petsecure's website at: www.petsecure.com.
"According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), 90% of pet
owners consider their pets as part of the family and 83% consider themselves
as their mom or dad," states Randy Valpy, President and Chief Operating
Officer of Petsecure pet health insurance. "The trend of 'pet humanization' is
driving pet insurance, as 76% of pet owners would spend any amount to keep
their pet alive. Our members have a strong bond with their pets which they
demonstrate by investing in the protection and peace of mind of pet health
insurance. We are very pleased to partner with VPI and celebrate Pet Parent's
Day with Canadian pet parents across the country."
According to AAHA, 87% of committed pet parents include their pet in
holiday celebrations, 67% travel with their pet and 62% celebrate their pet's
birthday. In a recent VPI poll 56% of the pet owners visiting their website
indicated they also sleep with their pets on a regular basis.
Free Pet Parent's Day e-cards are now available at: www.petsecure.com and
will be available until the end of April. Send your greetings to as many pet
parents as you'd like including your own personal message.
