Crum & Forster Pet Insurance Group has partnered with Ohio-based company Jolly Pets to donate 900 enrichment toys to a few ASPCA rehabilitation, recovery, and enrichment facilities where they supply take care of animals rescued from situations of cruelty and neglect. 

“We’re elated to support the ASPCA and the ASPCA Pet Health Insurance program of their efforts to vary the mindset that animals with behavioral issues are ‘unadoptable’,” said Louisa Casto, marketing director, Jolly Pets. “As a big shelter supporter, we now have seen firsthand what a difference Jolly Pets toys make for these dogs. Enrichment activities are so vital to their mental health and rehabilitation, and Jolly Pets values the role we will play in helping prepare shelter dogs for adoptions into recent, loving homes.”

Jolly Pets provides products for dogs and cats, continually searching for recent and modern ways to develop superior products for pets. The corporate’s vision is just not simply to make a toy, it’s to make a top quality toy that can enrich the pet’s life. Their Jolly Rescues Donation Program supports causes within the areas of rescues, shelters, police K-9 and military organizations, natural disasters, and other related groups.

Along with this donation, and to assist support pet parents who could also be coping with behavioral issues with their very own dog or cat, the ASPCA Pet Health Insurance program has created a multifaceted behavioral awareness campaign via their website and social media channels to offer relevant, real-world instruction and suggestions. Resources include an academic video series with behavioral expert and trainer Tabitha Kucera of Chirrups and Chatter. 

“As people begin going out more with the easing of COVID-19, some pets are beginning to experience separation anxiety. This is commonly misunderstood and might leave pet parents confused and unable to resolve the issue,” said Bob Capobianco, senior vice chairman, Crum & Forster Pet Insurance Group. “We would like pet parents to grasp what their dog or cat could also be experiencing, and we’re hoping this campaign will raise awareness regarding that topic and assist them with informative resources. As well as, pet parents may not know that pet insurance may also help cover eligible behavioral issues as well.” 

The 900 Jolly Pets toys, which were delivered in mid-August, will provide support to the animals on the ASPCA Behavioral Rehab Center in Weaverville, N.C., the ASPCA Cruelty Recovery Center in Columbus, Ohio, and CARE (the Canine Annex for Recovery and Enrichment) facility unit in Latest York City. 

“We’re thankful to Crum & Forster Pet Insurance Group and Jolly Pets for his or her generous donation of toys to dogs within the care of our ASPCA rehabilitation and recovery facilities,” said Kristen Collins, vice chairman of ASPCA Rehabilitation Services. “The ASPCA works to take care of dogs who’ve faced cruelty, neglect, and behavioral challenges, and these recent toys will provide essential enrichment to dogs in need.”
