Petplan dog, cat and rabbit insurance

At Blue Cross, we believe pet insurance is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. While rehoming a pet is an exciting and rewarding time, it‘s also important that you consider the financial implications should your pet suffer from any unexpected illnesses and injuries. 

That’s why we work in partnership with Petplan, the UK’s No.1 pet insurer, so that all our dogs, cats and rabbits are rehomed with four weeks’ free insurance, providing extra peace of mind as they settle into their new homes. 

Pet insurance can allow you to make decisions based in the best interests of your pet’s health. However, it’s important to know that not all pet insurance is the same, some policies will limit the amount of time or money that you are eligible to claim for, so make sure you understand what a policy will and will not cover!

That’s why we recommend Petplan’s Covered For Life® insurance policies as they:

  • can provide up to £12,000 worth of Veterinary Fees cover each year
  • avoid placing exclusions at renewal so ongoing conditions continue to be covered year after year, provided you renew each year with no break in cover
  • do not increase your premium or excess just because you make a claim
  • offer multi-pet cover so you have peace of mind that all of your pets are insured and you will receive a discount!

What’s more, when you take out a full policy, Petplan will give 10 per cent of your premium to Blue Cross and a further 10 per cent each year you renew your policy. This money helps us to look after all of the animals in our care, keeping pets safe until they find happy new homes.

In 2014, Petplan gave Blue Cross over £181,000! That’s enough money to provide a health check to 18,100 dogs, vaccinate 36,200 kittens or neuter 3,620 rabbits!
