TAMPA, Fla. (February 25, 2015) – Fetching Communications, the national PR and marketing agency for the pet and veterinary industries, is celebrating 12 years exclusively representing pet and veterinary businesses. In addition, the firm is pleased to welcome new and returning clients to its roster for 2015.
Founded in 2003 by Kristen Levine, a national pet living expert and media spokesperson, and the founder of Kristen Levine Pet Living, Fetching has designed and implemented multi-faceted communications campaigns for the industry’s top pet product and service companies and veterinary specialty practices since its inception.
“It is a privilege to work with leaders in our industry such as the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmology, Emergency Animal Clinic, Charleston Veterinary Referral Center, PetSafe, and Pet Sitters International,” says Levine. “The reason we’ve earned a spot in this exceptional ring is Fetching’s unique expertise and creativity in pet and veterinary media relations, social media and marketing.”
“Kristen is an innovator in the pet industry, and her absolute dedication to animal welfare drives the work we do for pet-focused companies, veterinary businesses and consumer brands that improve the lives of pets and pet parents,” says Liz Lindley, CEO. “Our passion for pets is matched with our team’s extensive industry knowledge, which has led to successful social media engagement campaigns, media attention for clients at trade shows, and top-tier media placements and product reviews for pet and veterinary businesses in major national and trade outlets.”
The agency’s growth is evident also in its PetPR.com news release writing and distribution service, which was acquired and re-launched less than two years ago. Now widely known as the pet industry’s news distribution service, PetPR.com is used by top pet and veterinary brands across the country including Precious Cat Litter, Dr. Kruger Pet Supplements, Pet Sitters International, Kohne Kollars, Women in the Pet Industry Network, Furlocity, Fetch…4 pets!, and Halo, Purely for Pets.
Kristen Levine is a speaker at many national conferences, including the What’s Next Boomer Business Summit, AARP Life@50 Expo, the Society of Animal Welfare Administrators National Conference, and the Petfood Forum Workshop. For five consecutive years, Fetching has been recognized by PRWeek’s Agency Business Report. Additionally, PRWeek spotlighted Fetching’s publicity campaign for the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) National Service Animal Eye Exam Event, which Fetching has promoted for six years.
The ACVO has engaged Fetching, for the sixth consecutive annual contract, for media outreach and social media for the 2015 Eye Exam Event, as well as PR support for its Diplomates. Also, Fetching has been retained by The Rein Coat to raise awareness of its therapeutic calming coat for pets, and by Daybreak/Lindy & Co. to raise visibility of its treats and mission “Saving kids one treat at a time.” In addition, Fetching has partnered with Jed Schaible, VMD, MBA, CVPM of The Vet Marketing Firm for veterinary websites, digital inbound marketing and associated public relations campaigns.
In 2015, the agency launched its Free Webinar Series for Veterinary Practices and Pet Businesses, with monthly sessions about Inbound Marketing, Launch Strategy, Public Relations, Social Media, Tradeshow Publicity, and Blogger Outreach. Additional free resources are shared on Fetching’s redesigned website, along with a complimentary Marketing Needs Analysis and the agency’s blog, Fetched! Similarly, the PetPR.com site posts industry blogger profiles as well as marketing tips in its blog, The Treat Jar.
