The agency will be tasked with all external PR initiatives to support the 10th Annual ACVO®/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam Event. Free screening eye exams are set to take place in veterinary clinics from May 1-31. The goal is to exceed the 7,400 conducted in 2016.

“Healthy eyesight is extremely important to Service Animals and their owners,” said Stacee Daniel, executive director of the ACVO®. “These animals selflessly serve the public. In 2017, we are happy to engage again with Fetching to promote the 10th anniversary of this event, and to spread the message that so many Service Animals can be seen and helped by our board-certified veterinary ophthalmologists.”

FWV, one of the nation’s largest independently-owned PR firms, acquired Fetching Communications in January of this year.

Fetching is the nation’s first marketing and PR firm focused exclusively on the pet and veterinary industries. The acquisition also included PetPR.com, Fetching’s dedicated news release distribution service for the pet industry.
