Opportunities Knock risten


Levine, a noted pet lifestyle expert, founded her com- pany, Fetching Communications, in 2003. It was the first PR and marketing agency exclusively dedicated to the pet and veterinary businesses.


Since then, Kristen has positioned Fetching as a leading public relations, media outreach and marketing agency in the pet industry. Now international in scope, Fetching represents more than 20 companies and organizations, stretching from the United States to Australia.


A Decade of Pets and Vets


“We just celebrated 10 successful years in business serving pet and veterinary businesses,” says Kristen with pride. During those years, says Kristen, one of her greatest joys has been the learning. “I love listening to clients and col- leagues and learning from their perspective.”


The other thing that brings her great satisfaction, says Kris- ten, is “Hearing compliments about our fabulous Fetching team. They are dedicated, talented professionals.”


In fact, “PRWeek” named Fetching Communications as one of the nation’s top PR agencies in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Kristen was awarded three Certificates of Excellence from the Cat Writer’s Association (CWA) in the 2012 CWA Communications Contest.


Opportunities arise nearly every day, which is exciting, explains Kristen. “It's important for me to consider each one alongside our business objectives, so that we focus on opportunities that inch us closer to our goals.”


Kristen was working for the SPCA Tampa Bay in Florida in the late 1980s when she saw the chance to establish a marketing/ PR business devoted to benefiting companion animals.


“During my tenure at the SPCA, I had the opportunity to ele- vate the pet adoption and spay-neuter platforms and learn what motivates and influences pet parents,” explains Kristen. “As I worked alongside pet businesses and veterinary practices dur- ing that time, I saw a need for specialized marketing and public relations services for this niche industry. I was inspired by my love for pets.”


Value Added


Staying true to her roots with the SPCA, Kristen’s philosophy is that Fetching work only with companies whose products or services add value to the lives of pets and their human counter- parts.


Fetching’s clients include pet product manufacturers and ser- vice providers, veterinary practice groups, specialty/referral practices, veterinary diagnostic companies, and veterinary col- leges.
