2017: A Year in the Life of Embrace Pet Insurance

Kara Bednarik

2017 was a busy year for Embrace. Follow along with our year in review to see how you have played a part in our growing family!

100,000 Pets

April 2017: Our Embrace Wall of Fame was brought in. This is made up of more than 2,500 Embraced pets and takes up an entire wall in the café at our headquarters in Warrensville Heights, Ohio. The wall was designed and installed by My Heart Wall.

June 2, 2017: Embrace reached the major milestone of insuring more than 100,000 pets. To celebrate, a donation of $1,000 was made to Bullies 2 The Rescue, a randomly-selected nonprofit nominated by a pet parent on our Facebook page.

Also in June, Embrace Pet Insurance was named one of Northeast Ohio’s Top Workplaces by The Plain Dealer for the third time.

July 17, 2017: Embrace launched our redesigned website. The redesign is mobile friendly and better organized allowing our pet parents to navigate the site quicker and more efficiently. Pictures of Embraced pets are sprinkled throughout to emphasize the bond we strive for.

August 31, 2017: Pet Parent, Rick D., biked over 1,200 miles to Embrace Pet Insurance headquarters from Amelia Island, Florida. The tour, called Hope’s Ride, was in honor of his Labrador Retriever, Hope, who lost her battle to cancer last spring. Embrace paid several thousand dollars of claims, giving Rick more time with her. He was greeted by lots of cheering Embracers and presented with a $3,000 check to The Hope Chest Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit at Southeast Veterinary Oncology and Internal Medicine (where Hope was treated) that provides financial support to help cover the medical care of pets battling cancer or any other debilitating illnesses.

Also in August, Embrace won the Northcoast 99 Award as one of Northeast Ohio’s best places to work for top talent for the seventh time. Embrace was presented with 1 of 6 special awards that night for Organizational Support and Work Life Balance

September 14, 2017: Embrace Pet Insurance was the exclusive sponsor for the 2017 Dick Goddard’s Cleveland Animal Protective League Telethon. Donations exceeding $175,000 poured in, $5,000 of which came from Embrace.

October 10, 2017: Embracers Danniele Z. and Kendra W. left Cleveland to spend three weeks in Sri Lanka volunteering with WECare Worldwide, an organization that focuses on spaying/neutering, vaccinating, and treating wild and stray animals in Sri Lanka.
