BVSPCA seeks to “put the human back in ‘humane’ animal treatment” by engaging the community in educational and fundraising initiatives. And the results of their efforts show. BVSPCA rescues and places over 16,000 animals in forever homes each year. By partnering with Fetch, the animal shelter takes pet care to the next level, too. “Pets are essentially four-legged children, and the cost of medical care is not far from comparable to human medical care,” Walter Fenstermacher, director of operations at BVSPCA, said. “I think it's an important thing for folks to be protected against unexpected occurrences, just like you would protect yourself and your family with medical insurance.”
Haley, a Fetch policyholder, adopted Bleu from BVSPCA. After a challenging year, she was hoping to bring some happiness into her life. "As soon as I saw his sweet little face, I knew I had to go meet him," Haley said.
