Petsecure Helps Calgary Humane Society Celebrate 90 Years by Supporting Cocktails for Critters

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Oct. 22, 2012) - Petsecure is proud to help the Calgary Humane Society celebrate its 90th anniversary by supporting its Cocktails for Critters event. Held Friday, October 26 at the Hyatt Regency Calgary in the Imperial Ballroom, the event will raise funds toward the Calgary Humane Society's efforts to rescue and care for the animals in its community.

"We're proud to work with agencies like the Calgary Humane Society that see the value in encouraging pet parents to purchase pet health insurance to the benefit of their animals. In its 90 years serving the Calgary community, the Calgary Humane Society has cared for countless animals and taught countless pet parents what it means to be a responsible pet owner," said Bill Skubovius, Vice President of Business Development at Petsecure. "It's our privilege to help them celebrate their legacy by sponsoring Cocktails for Critters."

Attendees at Cocktails for Critters will enjoy hors d'oeuvres, a celebrity and pooch fashion show, silent and live auction and a wine raffle. Tickets are available through the Humane Society's website.

"Cocktails for Critters is our largest fundraising event of the year. This event helps us offer hope to thousands of animals in need every year, but without dedicated support from organizations like Western Financial Insurance, this could not be possible," said Mark Takhar, Executive Director.

The Calgary 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.
