The California-based virtual pet health company will donate the money to a variety of veterinary care charities in the US, Canada, and the UK.
GoodPetsPlan—a global provider of veterinary telehealth care and pet health coverage—is pledging 100% of all net profits from December 21, 2021, through the end of 2022 to grant life-saving, emergency and other veterinary services in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
According to a company release, in response to the overwhelming need for urgent and immediate veterinary care for many animals—both domestic and wild—the proceeds will go to charities including the ASPCA, VCA Charities and GoodPetsPlan's personal favorite in the US, For the Love Of Alex, Inc. In addition to this, the RSPCA, PDSA and Blue Cross (British emergency vet clinics) and other UK charities will benefit from all UK sales.
"The total well-being of your and our pet partners was a goal when envisioning GoodPetsPlan," says AJ Rey, founder of the company. "This business was not only created to modernize how we use telehealth for our pets but for us to utilize this opportunity to provide urgent, critical emergency and other much-needed vet care to the pets of low-income families."
Virtual healthcare services—such as the 24-7 online veterinary visits that GoodPetsPlan offers— have become a cornerstone for pet parents worldwide amid the COVID-19 pandemic. With its network of over 3,000 licensed veterinarians across the US, UK and Canada, pet owners can also seamlessly plan for their pet's future healthcare coverage needs.
Additionally, the company incorporates both a modern and traditional approach to pet insurance and veterinary medicine by providing community-funded, health coverage with a low monthly maximum payment.
"These have been trying times. I am hoping 2022 will be a healthy, safe year for all of us—pet buddies included. If we can help pet families this coming year and improve the quality of the lives of hopefully millions of animals, then this would be my wish answered for Christmas and New Year,” concluded Rey.
