National Partnership Brings Quality & Affordable Vet Care to Adopters of Newly-Rehomed Pets
Philadelphia, PA. (February 1, 2019) – getyourpet.com, the national pet adoption site, partners with THRIVE Affordable Vet Care to bring veterinary care at unprecedented value to newly-rehomed dogs and cats. To begin accessing this valuable pet care from THRIVE, pet adopters from Get Your Pet will receive a complimentary first exam in their adoption package.
“We are excited to partner with THRIVE to help bring affordable veterinary care to our adoption community,” said Get Your Pet Founder and life-long animal welfare advocate, Angela Marcus. “We hope this joint effort allows more pets to get the preventative care they need to ensure they stay healthy for years to come.”
Get Your Pet is the online pet adoption community where people who have to rehome a pet directly connect with people who want to adopt a dog or cat, thereby keeping them out of the shelter. In addition to offering veterinary care at unprecedented value, THRIVE will increase the visibility for dogs and cats in need of rehoming on Get Your Pet with a geo-targeted listing of available pets on their website at each of their locations.
THRIVE complements Get Your Pet’s simpler, smarter, more humane approach to pet adoption by offering their clients medicines, diagnostic tests, and equipment for their beloved pets at a substantial discount. THRIVE’s newly launched THRIVE PLUS™ Membership features unlimited pet exams, 10% off services, 10% off dog grooming and training at local Petcos and more.
“Our partnership with Get Your Pet is another example of how our unique business model allows us to invest in the communities we serve so we can help more pets receive the care they need,” said Benjamin Trotter, VP of Marketing at THRIVE Affordable Vet Care. “By offering our services to new pet owners in the Get Your Pet community we are helping them and their pet get off on the right paw.”
The total cost of a legally-documented pet adoption through Get Your Pet is $99 for a dog and $49 for a cat, which is not paid until the Adopter actually succeeds in adopting a dog or cat. In addition to legal documentation and a voucher for a pet exam from a participating veterinarian, the adoption fee includes eligibility for 30 days’ free pet insurance from Trupanion (some restrictions in CA) and a $40 credit towards services on Rover.com (first time customers, only). Additionally, Adopters who live near Pet Valu Pet stores receive money-saving coupons valuable in-store at Pet Valu. A portion of the profits from Get Your Pet adoptions will go to benefiting local animal shelters.
