Petsecure Gold Sponsor for Winnipeg Humane Society's 19th Annual Bow Wow Ball

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Nov. 5, 2012) - Petsecure is proud to join The Winnipeg Humane Society (WHS) as a sponsor for its 19th annual Bow Wow Ball - The Wizard of Paws! To be held Saturday, November 10 at The Fairmont Winnipeg, the event raises funds to support the thousands of animals that The Winnipeg Humane Society cares for each year.

"We're pleased to support The Winnipeg Humane Society in its tireless efforts to rescue and care for animals," said Bill Skubovius, Petsecure's Vice President of Business Development. "As strong ambassadors of responsible pet ownership, we are proud to contribute to and support such a worthy organization."

Petsecure's Gold Sponsorship helps The WHS - Manitoba's largest animal shelter-continue in its work to receive and care for nearly 9,000 animals each year. The Wizard of Paws Bow Wow Ball includes cocktails, dinner, dancing, a balloon draw and a live and silent auction. There will also be a special performance by Winnipeg's Colleen Furlan, who recently made it into the top four in the CBC reality TV series Over The Rainbow in its search for a Dorothy.

"We rely on companies like Petsecure to support the WHS and ensure we can keep up the good work of sheltering, adopting and caring for pets who deserve that second chance at a happy life," said Bill McDonald, Winnipeg Humane Society CEO.

The Winnipeg Humane Society is one of the many Canadian animal shelters that also benefits from Petsecure's Adoptsecure Program. Adoptsecure provides up to six weeks of accident and illness insurance coverage valued at up to $500 for all newly adopted dogs and cats.
