If only pets could talk. The big changes happening at Canada’s animal shelters would make the rounds from dog park to groomer’s chair. What’s all the bark about? Pet insurance. When Petplan pet insurance set paw in Canada last year, the shelter pet experience in Winnipeg got a big boost – the kind that not only finds cats and dogs new homes, but helps keep them there for life. Thanks to Petplan, every cat and dog adopted at the Winnipeg Humane Society not only got a new family, but 30 days of free pet insurance from Petplan, as well.

“There are so many exciting things to consider on the day you adopt a pet,” says Petplan Vice President of Canadian Markets, William Skubovius. “How you’ll pay unexpected vet bills shouldn’t be one of them. That’s why Petplan’s 30-day trial coverage starts the morning after adoption at 12:01 a.m., for shelters like Winnipeg Humane Society. To spread the good pet fortune to other provinces, Petplan is proud to announce our latest shelter partnership with the Edmonton Humane Society.”

EHS and Petplan share more than a love of shelter pets. “Edmonton Humane Society holds the same core values that Petplan does, in that pets come first,” Skubovius continues. “You can see it by simply walking through the shelter on any given day. The team’s passion for pets echoes from executive leadership to the hundreds of volunteers who selflessly commit their time. That’s why we’re so pleased to have Edmonton Humane Society choose Petplan as their exclusive pet insurance partner.”

EHS acting CEO Miranda Jordan-Smith explains, “We carefully compared a number of pet insurance providers and selected Petplan because the company offers the best pet insurance available, offering great value and flexibility to our animal adopters. We know our clients will receive the best coverage available for their beloved pets so they can afford to give them the exceptional veterinary care they deserve.”

In addition to providing adopters with 30 days complimentary insurance coverage, Petplan will also serve as Edmonton's Top Dog Sponsor at the pet-packed "Pets in the Park” fun run this June 22.

For Edmonton Humane Society, the partnership helps ensure that fewer pets return to the shelter. By helping families afford to keep their pets when unexpected illnesses and injuries happen, Petplan frees up the shelter for more pets in need.

Through partnership and innovation, The Edmonton Humane Society (a registered charity) is committed to helping homeless and abused companion animals, enlightening people, and enriching lives.
