WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2012) - Petsecure is a Pet Pals sponsor of Paws in Motion with the Winnipeg Humane Society. Held Sunday, June 24 at the Assiniboine Park, Lyric Theatre, the pledged walk raises funds to support the thousands of animals that the Winnipeg Humane Society cares for each year.

"We look forward to being a part of Paws in Motion," said Petsecure's Vice President of Business Development Bill Skubovius. "The Winnipeg Humane Society looks after thousands of animals a year, and as strong believers in responsible pet ownership, we're happy to contribute to and support such a worthy organization".
