Studies show that owning a pet will not only put a smile on your face, but can have a positive effect on your health. The special bond with a cat, dog or other animal can even increase your fitness level and lower stress. UHA Health Insurance has partnered with the Hawaiian Humane Society to raise awareness about these benefits and is offering pet insurance to its members. For each application for pet insurance submitted through its website, UHA will donate $40 to the Hawaiian Humane Society. Also, you are invited to take part in the Hawaiian Humane Society’s Pet Walk on October 13 at Kolowalu Park.
