Trupanion’s partnership with We Rate Dogs highlights
Seattle, July 7, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Seattle – July 7, 2021 – Trupanion, the leader in pet medical insurance, and WeRateDogs have joined forces to raise awareness of the often unprecedented challenges facing veterinary professionals.
Working around the clock to keep animals healthy, veterinary professionals often face heartbreaking situations that lead to high levels of burnout, decreased job satisfaction, stress and, tragically, suicide. .
Trupanion has strengthened its commitment to supporting the veterinary community with its recently launched “TruCuddle” campaign. Through this global movement, Trupanion provides funds that are used directly to support grants, scholarships and educational programs to non-profit organizations for the benefit of veterinary professionals.
As part of its partnership with Trupanion, WeRateDogs engaged its community of over 15 million animal lovers around the world in #EarstoVets, a social media campaign to rally support and share photos and videos for show that they listen to their veterinary professionals, not just about medical care, but also to the challenges they face.
“We are delighted to partner with Trupanion,” said Matt Nelson, Founder of WeRateDogs. “It was important that our community was made aware of the challenges in the veterinary industry because they can be very helpful in solving them. They can be part of the solution, just like Trupanion.”
“As a company focused on veterinarians, Trupanion recognizes the challenges often faced by the veterinary profession,” said Travis Worra, Managing Director of Trupanion. “We are excited to work with WeRateDogs and other organizations that align with our core values, in our ongoing efforts to support a healthier veterinary ecosystem. “
In addition to raising awareness with its #EarstoVets social campaign, WeRateDogs also offers lengthy online video interviews with veterinarians in the field who speak honestly and poignantly about the mental health issues they have encountered in their profession.
“All of the vets we interviewed for #EarsToVets stressed the importance of having a financial plan for your pet’s medical care,” Nelson added. “This is the key to our collaboration with Trupanion and our support for the TruCuddle campaign, because medical insurance for your pet allows you and your vet to focus on the health and well- be your dog, rather than on costs. “
Thanks to TruCuddle, Trupanion is also partnering with Not One More Vet (NOMV) and the Multicultural Veterinary Medical Association (MCVMA) and will contribute $ 250, to be shared equally between organizations, whenever a new pet hospital in the United States or Canada downloads software from Trupanion, which acts as a payment solution – a solution that can directly reduce economic euthanasia. The campaign will run from June 18 to October 23.
Trupanion also recently announced its largest charitable donation – a pledge to issue more than 50,000 shares, which, as of July 6, was worth more than $ 5.5 million to MightyVet in favor of the career and well-being of veterinary professionals.
WeRateDogs also contributes 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of its “I love my vet”To NOMV and MCVMA to support their work and mental health resources that keep vets happy and healthy.
