One of Embrace’s core values is to give back to our community and we like to partner with others who align with us on that. RescueBox is perfect because they donate five pounds of food and two vaccinations to shelter pets with each subscription.

To celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year, Embrace Pet Insurance and RescueBox® are giving away several subscriptions for the curated goodie pet box. A survey conducted in 2015 by The Harris Poll found that 95% of Americans consider their pet to be a member of the family. While Chinese New Year is traditionally about celebrating with human family, 2018 is going to the dogs.

The Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year throughout Asia, begins on February 16, 2018. This year is the Year of the Dog based on the Chinese astrological signs of 12 animals. A Dog year brings good things for those lucky enough to be born in it. All animals in the Chinese zodiac are special, but many believe that people born in Dog years are especially so. There are five types of dog: Wood, Fire, Earth, Gold, and Water, and birth year determines the type of dog a person is. This year is Earth Dog which hasn’t happened since 1958. The Earth Dog is known to be a good communicator, a serious soul, and very responsible in their work life.

If you’re a Dog, then you have something in common with Embrace: your lucky color is purple. Red and green are also lucky colors for Dogs this year. Be mindful of blue, white, and gold though since these are deemed unlucky colors for Dogs in 2018.

To celebrate the Year of the Dog, Embrace is hosting a giveaway with RescueBox® for a one-year subscription, a six-month subscription, and a three-month subscription. Box options range from small to large dogs and they even offer a box for cats. The lucky winners of the random giveaway will receive a box of premium products for their pet. Embrace Pet Insurance Marketing Manager Dawn Pyne, says, “One of Embrace’s core values is to give back to our community and we like to partner with others who align with us on that. RescueBox® is perfect because they donate five pounds of food and two vaccinations to shelter pets with each subscription.”
