Embrace Pet Insurance donating $20,000 to Rescue Village

Dec. 24—Cleveland-based Embrace Pet Insurance recently announced it is pledging $30,000 to local animal non-profits this holiday season to improve their welfare during what should be one of the merriest times of the year.

One of those benefitting is Rescue Village, which will receive $20,000, according to a news release.

Rescue Village, located in Geauga County, gives shelter, provides medical care and finds homes for abused and homeless domestic animals.

Embrace's gift will fund all adoption fees for cats and dogs at the shelter until the full donation is utilized, which makes taking a pet home easier for potential pet parents and allows Rescue Village to save the lives of even more animals in the community, the release stated.

The donation also includes covering a portion of essential medical care for animals at Rescue Village before they are adopted, ensuring they are healthy and ready for their new homes.

"We don't want cost to prohibit any family from adopting a new furry friend during the holidays, or for pet parents to hold off on necessary procedures for their dog or cat because there are too many other items on their budget list," Embrace Pet Insurance President Brian Macias stated in the release.

"Through this local campaign, we are partnering with two charities that can ease these burdens for families, creating a happier holiday season for pets and their loved ones," he added.

"Every year, Rescue Village takes in more than 2,000 animals and provides complete veterinary care to each animal, including spay and neuter surgeries," Executive Director Kenneth Clarke stated in the release. "With so many homeless animals in need, this partnership with Embrace Pet Insurance encourages people to adopt, and it helps cover some of the humane society's veterinary costs, preparing these pets for success in their new adoptive home."
