Fetch Pet Insurance raises over $300,000 for Project Street Vet
This inaugural campaign will ensure Project Street Vet funds to operate in 2023
Fetch Pet Insurance announced its 101 Donations campaign raised $316,000 as a title sponsor for Project Street Vet (PSV). This campaign generated over 1,500 gifts across the United States and Canada, raising a little over $215,000 with an additional $101,000 from Fetch.
"We're thrilled with the success of the 101 Donations campaign; these funds will support the ongoing efforts of the Southern California and Atlanta chapters and enable expansion to another two communities in 2023," said Hilary Palotay, director, communications and corporate responsibility at Fetch, in an organizational release.1
"We're announcing the newest team in Orlando this week at the Veterinary Meeting & Expo (VMX). The work of Project Street Vet is made possible not only with financial support but with dedicated veterinary volunteers who give their time and expertise. We're committed to continuing to raise awareness of Project Street Vet's life-saving mission and build a robust team of Street Vets nationwide," she continued.
After launching their partnership in 2022, Fetch helped PSV expand its presence in Southern California, where the organization was founded by Kwane Stewart, DVM, and expanded into the eastern United States by establishing a chapter in Atlanta, Georgia. According to the release,1 this growth helped PSV to treat almost 600 pets of the unhoused last year, giving them everything from routine care to live safe surgeries for free.
"We are incredibly thankful for our partnership with Fetch and overwhelmed by the success of the 101 Donations campaign," expressed Stewart.1 "Our ability to expand operations, like the newest chapter in Orlando, demonstrates how contributions made to Project Street Vet are making an impact for pets in need every day. I look forward to achieving even more in 2023."
PSV will also launch a new chapter in Orlando Florida which will be led by Mary Anne Bowen, DVM.
