PetFirst Gives to Local Pet Organization

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (December 18, 2008) – Nationwide pet insurance provider, PetFirst Healthcare, based in Jeffersonville, marked the holiday season by contributing to an organization that keeps four-legged friends close to its heart all year long, and that is one of the many organizations affected by recent city budget cuts.

PetFirst donated $500 to Louisville Metro Animal Services’ Animal Care Fund, providing medical care to animals in their custody, including spaying/neutering, vaccinations, deworming and microchipping, among others. PetFirst polled its employees to choose the organization to receive the funding and Metro Animal Services was a clear winner.

“We wanted to try to help out in a difficult time,” said Brent Hinton, PetFirst Healthcare CEO and former president of Kentucky Humane Society. “It’s important to our company and employees to help animal organizations that make a real difference close to home.”

Many PetFirst employees have adopted pets from Louisville Metro Animal Services or have benefited from the services the department provides. “We had such a great experience adopting our cat through Metro Animal Services that when it was time to get a dog we went back,” said Cherie Hora, Inside Sales Representative for PetFirst. “I couldn’t believe how low the adoption fee was because I know how costly vet bills can be. This can really help get more animals out of shelters and into caring homes.”

Hora has adopted two cats, Pixie and Foxy, and one dog, Caesar, from Metro Animal Services.
