1st for Women Insurance, who recently launched a pet insurance product, has partnered with leading, non-profit, pro-life, rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing shelter, Woodrock Animal Rescue, to help find forever homes for dogs and cats in need.

The shelter, which has over 350 animals in its care at any given time, says that when it comes to rehoming rescue animals, awareness is key.

“It’s all about reach,” says Stella Meldau, co-founder of Woodrock Animal Rescue. “We rely heavily on our network of supporters to share pictures of our animals in need of homes and increase public support.”

Understanding that shares save, 1st for Women is assisting Woodrock spread the word with the objective of increasing animal adoptions and increasing adoptions of harder-to-place animals, like golden-oldies.

“Every month, 1st for Women will share images of dogs and cats that are available for adoption to its newsletter database and social media network, alongside a short description on the fur-baby in need of a home. In addition to assisting with awareness, 1st for Women is making a monthly donation to the shelter,” says Seugnette van Wyngaard, Head of 1st for Women.

To date, three-year-olds Dusty and Annabella, five-year-olds Bean, Apollo and Gibbs, eight-years-young Angel and Marco and Dexter who is seven, has been profiled. Fingers and toes are crossed that a 1st for Women customer will “swipe right” for a match made in heaven.
