Heads Up Fur-Parents! GCash Now Offers Insurance for your Pets


Dogs are one of the best blessings humans can ever ask for. Being greeted with an excited, tail-wagging, tongue-sticking-out pupper is the ultimate mood booster and stress reliever on a busy day. As the saying goes, we don’t deserve dogs for always being there for us. Where we see them as an additional companion, to them we are their world.

However, with a great love for fur babies, comes great responsibility. Whether you are a long-time or new fur parent, you would know it takes a large amount of upkeep to care for your four-legged friends. Raising dogs can be challenging as they require a lot of love, attention, and physical care.

Being a good fur parent is more than just giving baths; it also entails taking them to proper groomers. It is more than providing basic care of food and water, but also ensuring they get the proper nutrients. It is more than deworming and anti-rabies vaccines, but also giving extra supplements and check-ups with the vet when necessary.

As the world opens up and gets back on its feet, people and dogs alike are getting more exposure to the outdoors, which increases health and safety risks. Fortunately, GCash, everyone’s go-to app for payments and financial services, is making moves to support pet owners in showing their love for their dogs by offering affordable, convenient, and comprehensive pet insurance.

“We want to emphasize pet insurance as part of essential pet care to give dog parents a sense of security in cases of unfortunate events. GCash (through GInsure) makes pet insurance more accessible, convenient and affordable, so pet owners can give their fur babies the best protection and care,” said Winsley Royce Bangit, GCash Chief Customer Officer.

With Pet Insure, you can protect both your dogs and yourself as a pet owner, to provide the best care in the face of unexpected circumstances without having to break the bank for every visit to the vet. For only Php267 per month, you can receive full year coverage with 3-in-1 insurance products, and a maximum coverage of Php400,000 for you and your dog. Packages include several items to secure your peace of mind such as: 

     Medical Reimbursement: In cases that your dog will need to undergo check-ups, tests/scans, surgery, GInsure will cover the expenses based on the covered amount of your insurance plan


     Cruciate Ligament Injuries: These are extremely painful knee joint injuries/ruptures that your dog may possibly get due to repeated trauma or arthritic disease. In these cases, your chosen Pet Insure plan can also cover it so long as it is not an intentionally inflicted injury.

     Burial Assistance: In the unfortunate circumstance your dog will be needed to be put down due to sickness and/or old age, GInsure’s Pet Insure can help alleviate the added stress of costly burial services

     Owner’s Liability: It cannot always be avoided that your fur baby can cause some accidents. Your insurance can help cover any legal liabilities to 3rd parties due to your dog’s actions


As with all GCash services, getting your pet insurance is convenient and hassle-free. In order to qualify, you will need to have a fully verified GCash account, proof of Philippine citizenship or legal residence for foreigners, and a house dog between the ages of 6 months to 8 years.

Pet Insure can be found under the GInsure Marketplace, which is a one-stop shop for all GCash users’ insurance needs including a wide portfolio of plans and partners/providers. Head onto the GCash dashboard and click the GInsure icon. Proceed to the “Lifestyle” category and click on Pet Insure (Dog) to select and avail the best insurance plan.

Get yourself and your fur baby insured today because prevention is always better than cure for both your wallet and your best furry friend.

This has been of greatest importance to parents these past two years, especially now as we emerge from lockdowns that prevented us from enjoying what we want to do with our families outside of home.

Because it’s always a delight to see everyone in the family happy, ang pinakamasarap para sa pamilya is everyone’s tried and tested favorite—Jollibee’s best-tasting Chickenjoy, which never fails to make everyone in the family happy.

Everyone feels a little brighter and happier when they sink their teeth into that crispylicious and juicylicious Chickenjoy that’s always there for them for any occasion.

Pasig City, Philippines—May 05, 2022 – Mother’s Day is just around the corner. And just like how you usually prepare for any season, you are probably glued to your screen searching for the best gift for your mom. And, with just a few clicks, you will get suggestions like “72 Unique Gifts for Moms” or “Flowers for Moms.” 

A fragrant bouquet, a silky dress, a designer purse, a new ceramic dinnerware, or plant pots may excite her, but what if you give something beyond these usual gift items? What if you surprise her by showing your love and appreciation? After all, actions speak louder than words. This Mother’s Day, the best gift you can give might be a clean, virus-free home!

With all the household chores and the time she devotes to her family every day, she has less time for herself. The gift of a clean and organized home lifts a heavy load on her shoulder, giving her more time to bond with her family and do the things she loves. In fact, a survey conducted by The Clorox Company revealed that 80 percent of people felt more relaxed and 60 percent felt less stressed in a clean home.

Indeed, cleaning your sweet abode is a tedious job. Your mom can attest to that. Worry no more because you’ve got a partner! 

Clorox Philippines, one of the country’s leading providers of cleaning and disinfecting products, is your partner in giving that tough power against germs and tender love to your mom!

Ready to wrap your present? Get yourself the Clorox Disinfecting Bleach. Not only does it clean your bathroom walls, floors, and sink, it also kills up to 99.9% of germs, including the COVID-19 virus. Going with it hand in hand is the Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner. With a bleaching power that destroys tough stains and kills germs, it leaves your toilet clean and shiny. With scents ranging from lavender to lemon, it also delivers a refreshing fragrance in your toilet bowl. 

Most of the time, your mom spends a lot of time cooking in the kitchen. So now, it is your time to tidy things up! With all the delicate surfaces in the kitchen, you need a reliable partner to do the job. Clorox Disinfecting All-Purpose Cleaner is perfect for various surfaces, such as synthetic marble, stainless steel, glazed ceramic tile, plastic, glazed porcelain, and sealed granite.


Clorox Expert Disinfecting Wipes helps you with quick cleanup for items like gadgets and toys. And to put the ribbon on top, use Clorox Expert Disinfectant Spray for a 30-second sanitization of the soft and hard surfaces for a germ-free and odor-free home. (Follow Clorox Cleaners’ usage instructions as per label.)

"Having a clean home may be one of the best gifts you can give your mothers. We hope that with Clorox Cleaners, we can help Filipinos provide this heart-warming and perfect gift to moms out there. Let’s make this special occasion more memorable for mothers." said Monique Gonzales, marketing manager for Southeast Asia at Clorox International.

She still dedicates most of her time at home, bonding with her kids and taking care of the household needs. “Alam mo dapat kung kailan ka need ng mga anak mo, ng asawa mo, [You should know when your family needs you] because at the end of the day, family should always come first.” At the end of the day, being a mom is Marian’s most important role in life and her children are her number one fans. Raising her kids to be kind, responsible, and compassionate people is the biggest goal she’s striving to achieve.

Marian rises to the challenges of motherhood
Marian acknowledges the difficulties that come with being a mom, and these have been amplified even more over the pandemic. It’s been tough for her kids who are both at the age of exploration and want to understand what’s happening outside their home. The Shopee superstar shares, “We had to talk to them and explain that there are a lot of changes and limitations because of this pandemic, but still reassured them that things would get better.” With the situation easing up in the last few months, Marian and Dingdong are happy to finally be able to have their kids go out more, meet their loved ones, and travel as a family.

Marian encourages moms to make the most of Shopee’s convenience and variety
Shopee has been Marian’s go-to for her family’s needs and home budols these last few years. She admits to being an impulsive, but happy shopper, adding to cart and checking out all sorts of items that spruce up different parts of her home. “Minsan talaga wala ka nang time na lumabas at mamili para sa sarili or sa pamilya mo kahit gustuhin mo [sometimes we don’t have time to go out and shop for ourselves or for the family even if we want to]. Shopee is very reliable and convenient because with just a few clicks, you get to shop for anything you need and want, all in one place,” says Marian.

Celebrate Mother’s Day with Marian’s top gifts for moms
