There’s nothing like the love and companionship of a pet. Providing the right mix of commercial insurance to Aspen’s client Four Paws Pet Center, is as close as I can get to the saying “it doesn’t feel like work”. I’m a dog lover and an insurance broker. The opportunity to provide business insurance services to a non-profit that supports homeless and needy animals is a joy for me.
Helping Homeless and Shelter Animals
I’d like to tell you a little more about Four Paws Pet Center. They’re a non-profit with three distinct missions. One of the most important and often overlooked is providing low cost spay and neutering services to help prevent unwanted litters. They also help collect pet food and find homes to adopt homeless or shelter animals. Here’s more about each:
Four Paws Pet Center of Colorado is the umbrella organization that holds the (501)c and focuses on low-cost spay and neuter outreach providing a preventative approach to unwanted litters. On average they do 100 spay and neuters per month which helps to reduce unwanted pet populations and unnecessary euthanizations.
Furry Friends Food Drive, a division, collects and distributes pet food through the Food Bank of the Rockies. Every day, families make heartbreaking economic decisions that impact their pets, and the food drive helps keep pets in their homes during difficult times.
Paws & Co. Adoptions, a division, is a foster-based animal rescue that places homeless or shelter animals in foster homes and works to find a quality and loving adoptive homes.
In addition to working with Four Paws as a client, I’m also a volunteer. If you’d like to learn more or volunteer, give me a call at 303-777-2991. Or you can visit their website: PawsCoAdoptions.org
