Apple is paying $20M for ‘Pge Care’ program
Apple is spending a record $20 million on a new program that aims to provide high-quality, low-cost care for dogs and cats that are at risk of being left behind by their owners.
Apple’s Pge Care program is a new breed of online care, where pets and their owners can chat with veterinarians, who can answer questions and help get the care they need.
Pesky dogs and kittens may require a vet visit, and some owners may also need to pay for additional tests, treatments, or other procedures.
Apple has been a big supporter of pet-related charities like Pets in Need and Pembroke Pines Animal Hospital.
Apple CEO Tim Cook recently launched the new AppleCare program, which launched on Monday.
Apple paid $20m for the company’s program in October, and AppleCare currently operates in more than 20 countries.
AppleCare for Pets will be offered in several countries in the U.S. and Canada, and it is available to both pet owners and pets that live in pet-friendly facilities.
AppleCare for Dogs will be available in the UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, New Zealand, Finland, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Belgium, France, Italy and Japan.
The program’s website includes information on what the program covers, as well as a list of available pet-focused vets.
Apple says it hopes to have more vets working with the program by next year.
In September, Apple announced it was creating a special team to help manage the program.
That team includes CEO Tim Apple, vice president of worldwide marketing John Gruber, and a senior vice president for technology and products Craig Federighi.
The new team is currently led by Gruber and Federighis new boss of Apple, Peter Schiller, who is the chief operating officer of Apple.
