April 21, 2014 - Cleveland, Ohio - Helen Woodward Animal Center, one of America's top non-profit animal welfare organizations, is teaming up with Embrace Pet Insurance, one of America's top pet health insurance providers, to help save animals.
Helen Woodward Animal Center is known around the world as "The Animal Center of the Future" with good reason; the Center believes animals help people and people help animals through trust, unconditional love, and respect. This thoughtful idea is clearly promoted in everything the Center does.
A shared passion for helping pets is what brings Helen Woodward Animal Center and Embrace Pet Insurance together in this brilliant partnership.
Mike Arms, President and CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center, says, "After spending more than 40 years of my life saving orphan pets, I've realized that pet owners really need pet insurance to keep their pets healthy and safe. Having pet insurance will help keep pet owners from having exorbitant medical expenses, and from having to relinquish pets because of cost.
"After doing due diligence and researching various pet insurance companies, I felt that Embrace is the pet insurance that I would want for my own pets, and I will be suggesting that to my friends, and all Helen Woodward Animal Center adopters."
Arms is a pioneer in the animal welfare industry, known for his heartfelt speeches and revolutionary pet events and programs, such as the "Remember Me Thursday" global awareness campaign.
Laura Bennett, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Embrace Pet Insurance, says, "When I saw Mike Arms speak several years ago, I was bowled over by his approach to animal sheltering and his huge impact on the pet community across the US. My admiration for Mike and the Helen Woodward Animal Center has grown ever since. I know that together, Embrace Pet Insurance and Helen Woodward can save more pet lives, something we both care about deeply."
