Ruffy's 11 steps to furry fabulous

Posted on June 14, 2013
  • print

When you're fabulous, you laugh when people say "in" or "out" of style, because you know that you are the style maker. Your look is timeless, so you don't need to keep up with the fashion trends. It's not something you do, not something you wear, it's just who you are!

But the line between flop and fabulous can be an out-of-place doggy hair or an askew cat whisker. Thanks to these photo submissions into Union Plus' Pet Photo Contest (hurry, the fun ends August 8) from union members, here is a quick Ruffy-approved cheat sheet on the rules to looking remarkable.



Don't forget that union members keep pets fabulous from head to tail by saving 10% on pet insurance, 25% on veterinary services and 10% on pet food, toys and other supplies.

Help if you don’t know your union

Your union membership dictates which Union Plus benefits you are eligible to use.

  1. What your national union’s name (not just your local number)? Scroll through the list we have to see if you recognize your union.
  2. What type of work do you do (select your occupation)?
  3. Do you have a union member card or union publication/letter that shows the name of your union? Find something with the name of your union, not just a local number.
  4. Is there a shop steward or work colleague you can ask what the name of your union is? You can even ask your human resources department to tell you the full name of your union?
  5. Do you have a Union Plus Credit Card? If so, the name and logo for your international union should appear on the front of the card.

Union Plus Credit Card

Union members are automatically eligible for their union's Union Plus benefits and you do not need to be a Union Plus Credit Cardholder in order to access your union's Union Plus benefits.

But - if you are a Union Plus Credit Cardholder, you could be eligible for additional discounts.
