Power Financial Credit Union Goes to the Dogs in October

Credit Union Offers New Member Incentives During Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – Pets are family…and, at Power Financial Credit Union, family comes first.

In recognition of October as Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month, Power Financial Credit Union is doing its part to reduce the number of dogs being held in shelters. Throughout October, the Credit Union is offering special treats to new members who open an account, along with their newly adopted furry family members.

Anyone who adopts a shelter dog during the month and opens a new Power Financial Credit Union account will be given a $50 credit* toward the adoption and their new pets will receive complimentary doggie treats.

To receive their gifts, new members must post a photo of the adopted dog, along with its name, to the Pet Corner on the Credit Union’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PowerFiCU?fref=ts) and bring the pet adoption papers to the branch nearest them when opening a new account. The $50 credit will be made to the new member’s share account and a doggie bag of treats will be given to them to take home for their pet.

During their follow-up telephone call, new members who opened a share account online should tell the Power Financial Credit Union representative they adopted a shelter dog in October and posted a photo to the Facebook page. Then, they may Fax or send a copy of their adoption papers to the representative and receive the $50 credit to their share account.

“Imagine a world where every dog counts…and every dog has a family and a home,” says Power Financial Credit Union President & CEO Allan Prindle, who adopted a Greyhound from a shelter three years ago. “We’d like to see that happen for dogs without a home…starting with area residents who are ready to become new credit union members.”
