Pets are family, but these dudes look like they’re related!
As pawrents, we all think of our pets as being part of our family. Some, like Milo and Michael, even look like they’re related! And for Michael, who had waited over four years to adopt a fur kid, finding Milo really did complete the family picture.
“After years of looking after other people’s dogs, our household decided it was time to find our own permanent addition to the family. We were fortunate to spot Milo's profile (a Portuguese water dog) on the PetRescue website almost immediately after he'd been listed."
“When we first met in person, he was such a happy little vegemite, and it wasn’t long before we brought him home and the fun really began!”
“Now we’ve finally got our fur baby, I didn’t want to take any chances. Especially after he took off 3km down the beach on our first outing!” says Michael. “We’re working on his recall, but there are some situations you just can’t control. And if things ever got a bit hairy, and Milo needed major vet work, I wanted us covered. I insure my health, my car, even my mobile! So, when I heard about the opportunity to protect Milo and make a difference by supporting PetRescue, I jumped online.”
“Woolworths will accept your insurance application even if there’s no vet history available for your newly adopted rescue pet**, and they were the cheapest quote we got too. For Milo, it works out at just $1.32+ per day. I spend more than that on his treats!”
