JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WAVE) - Jeffersonville has been proclaimed the most pet-friendly city in Indiana.

Mayor Mike Moore broke the news Tuesday when he visited the PetFirst Pet Insurance headquarters.

The company celebrated its 15th anniversary, that’s 105 in dog years, so it is packaging 15,000 treats to be shared with shelter dogs in 15 cities.

“It’s important for us to lend a hand to those partners who help support our business,” PetFirst CEO Katie Blakeley said. “Plus, we do have a heart for the animal welfare industry. They do so much for our homeless pets. And it’s starting to be a strong source of new acquisition for new pet parents.”

PetFirst has been in business since 2004 and employs more than 60 people.
