This coming Sunday the 9th, we are so excited to be taking part in Seattle’s 14th Annual Furry 5K. Trupanion will not only have a team of participants in the 5K run/walk (Go Trupanionites!) but will also be sponsoring the event!

Starting at 10am, Seward Park truly goes to the dogs, hosting around 1,000 pups and their pet loving owners, all in order to raise money for the Seattle Animal Shelter through the Help the Animals Fund.

Last year, our temporary doggy tattoos were a huge success and we are so excited to bring them back this year. Hopefully we’ll again manage to get our tattoos onto some of the pooches competing in the various contests and showcases throughout the day!

If you manage to make it to this year’s event keep an eye out for us in the bright red shirts. Our booth will be on the west side of the park, right next to ACCESS Veterinary ER and Stella & Chewy’s pet foods. In addition to tattooing participants and providing information on our services, we will also be holding a raffle for a fabulous gift basket including a $50 gift card to Mud Bay pet supplies.

With all proceeds from the event going straight to support the Seattle Animal Shelter, we can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday giving back to the animals that brighten our every day. Here at Trupanion we have always had a passion for adoption with everyone from executives to new hires having their own success stories. The Seattle Animal Shelter takes in around 6,000 pets each year and finds them loving homes. In response to an increasing need for veterinary care, volunteers started the Furry 5K in 1999 and have been going ever since!
