Trupanion Holidays with Stories and Charity


Happy Pawlidays
Celebrate the Pawlidays with holiday-inspired promotions.

Trupanion announces two holiday-inspired promotions that give pet owners the opportunity to tell their pet story while also allowing them to give back to the pet community.


( December 6, 2010 — Trupanion, North America’s fastest growing pet health insurance company, has announced two holiday promotions that aim to spread some holiday cheer. The December promotions encourage pet owners to write inspirational stories about their pet for the chance to win money to give to charity and other prizes.

Trupanion’s first promotion encourages pet owners to write a story about being a ‘Tru Hero’ in which the pet owner incorporates their own interpretation of a ‘Tru Hero’ into a story about their pet. Twenty-five second-place winners will be chosen to receive a copy of pet photography book, Dogphoria by Jim Dratfield. One grand prize winner will also receive a copy of Dogphoria, as well as an iPod Nano. The grand prize winner also gets their own chance to spread holiday cheer with $500 to give to a charity of their choice.

The second promotion is for pet lovers who own or manage a blog. Bloggers are invited to write a blog post on the topic “How My Pet’s Love is My Holiday Gift” for a chance to win cash prizes.

“With the busyness of the holidays, sometimes we can forget to slow down and appreciate what we have,” said Darren DeFeo, Senior Vice President of E-Commerce at Trupanion. “We want to remind pet owners of the greatest gift of all – the love of their pet.”

Trupanion continues the holiday fun with short contests every week in December, with fun themes such as holiday-inspired pet photos and creative photo captions.
