For Immediate Release
BOISE, Idaho, (Sept. 22, 2010) — Time flies when you’re having fun…and helping pet owners care for their pets!
Pets Best Insurance this month celebrates its fifth year of providing quality pet insurance to thousands of dogs and cats across the country. Although the company is young, its founder has lived and breathed pet insurance for nearly 30 years.
Dr. Jack Stephens, who is widely regarded within the industry as the founder of U.S. pet insurance, set out to stop “economic euthanasia” of pets by founding the first pet insurance company in the United States in 1981. Twenty-five years later, Dr. Stephens took his experience and all the best attributes of pet insurance and teamed up with Greg McDonald to form Pets Best Insurance in 2005.
“When Greg and I started Pets Best Insurance, our common vision for the company was to simply provide people with the best pet insurance for their pets,” Dr. Stephens said. “We’ve made pet insurance extremely easy, convenient and affordable for people. While it’s been a great five years so far, our future is extremely bright as everyone at Pets Best looks forward to continuing to serve our customers and their pets.”
Today, the Pets Best team of professionals operates from its headquarters in Boise, Idaho.
