Trupanion Supports Pet Charities
Trupanion's Pet Charity program allows pet owners the opportunity
to give back to their communities and help other pets in need.
Trupanion policyholders have donated over $100,000 to charities since 2005 via our pet charity program. This program allows pet owners the opportunity to give back to their communities and help animals in need by adding an additional dollar amount to their monthly premium. 100% of this donation goes to the selected charity.
The Second Chance Fund is one way American Humane Association
works to support animal welfare organizations in their vital work. By providing
financial assistance to animal welfare organizations responsible for the temporary
care of animals as they are prepared for adoption into permanent, loving homes,
the program provides animal victims of abuse or neglect with a second chance at
Trupanion Proud Partner of Second Chance Fund
May 2011 — In an effort to support its commitment to companion animals, Trupanion has announced a partnership with American Humane Association and its Second Chance Fund. Both organizations share the common goal of helping companion animals receive optimum veterinary care.
New Trupanion policyholders will soon have the opportunity to donate five dollars per month to the Second Chance Fund, which will automatically be deducted from their checking account at the same time as their pet insurance premium. Policyholders will also be able to donate to the cause at other times during the year.

The Seeing Eye
The Seeing Eye, Inc. is the oldest existing dog guide school in the world.
Twelve times a year, as many as 24 students at a time visit the Morristown, N.J.
campus to discover the exhilarating experience of traveling with a Seeing Eye dog.
Our students – people who are blind or visually impaired – come from all over the United States and Canada to spend up to a month training with a new Seeing Eye® dog. They range in age from 16 to senior citizens, their home environments may be rural or urban, and they may be homemakers, volunteers, or judges. But they all have this in common: They are motivated by a sense of independence and armed with the knowledge that Seeing Eye® dogs will provide an extra edge to attain success, however they may choose to define it.

National Canine Cancer Foundation
Canine Cancer affects one out of every three dogs. Of those, over half of them will die of cancer. The National Canine Cancer Foundation is asking for your help to fund important research grants that are working towards improving those statistics. Through a major project funded by the National Institute of Health, the mapping of the genome sequence of the dog has been complete. Knowing the mapping of every gene in the dog, gives researchers an advantage not yet achieved in humans. For more information about the National Canine Cancer Foundation, visit www.wearethecure.org
