Petsecure Supports 1st Annual Turf and Surf Event for the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2012) - Petsecure is proud to join the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society as a sponsor for its first Annual Turf and Surf event. Held Sunday, September 9, the 5 km walkathon is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Humane Society.

"Sponsoring the Turf and Surf event allows Petsecure to contribute to the needs of this community," said Bill Skubovius, Vice President of Business Development at Petsecure. "Through the programs and services offered by the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society, thousands of animals are saved every year. Petsecure is proud to support those initiatives."

The event begins at the Economical Insurance Group and ends in Bingemans Park where pet parents and pets alike can enjoy the wave pool in a leash-free environment. The event also consists of a silent auction, a vendor village for shopping, and a dog trick contest.

The KWHS is one of the many Canadian animal organizations 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.
