You may be surprised to hear that you are more likely to claim on your pet insurance than your car or household policies. While advances in veterinary medicine mean vets can do more for your pet, treatment costs can soon mount up.

As a new owner of a Blue Cross pet you can be reassured that this 4 weeks’ free insurance immediately covers all injuries and new illnesses to include:

  • Up to £4,000 veterinary fees for all injuries and illnesses
  • Up to £250 towards advertising and reward
  • Up to £250 for boarding fees

Having a good pet insurance policy allows you to concentrate on what’s best for your pet, knowing help is there for the cost of unexpected treatment. However it’s important to be aware that not all pet insurance is the same. Some policies limit the amount of time or money that you can claim for, so we suggest that you don’t choose a policy based on price alone.At Blue Cross, we believe that pet insurance is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. Whilst rehoming a pet is an exciting and rewarding time, it is also important for new owners to 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 favourite pet insurer, to enable owners to make decisions purely in the best interests of their pet’s health and happiness, without having to consider the personal financial cost. Petplan are committed to keeping pets healthy and owners happy, which is why over 90% of their customers renew each year.

So that the animals rehomed from Blue Cross have the very best start in their new homes, Blue Cross works with Petplan to give all rehomed dogs, cats and rabbits 4 weeks’ free insurance to offer you financial peace of mind.

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

In 2013, Petplan gave Blue Cross £163,000! That’s enough money to vaccinate 32,600 puppies, buy toys and scratch posts for 6,520 kittens or neuter 3,260 rabbits!

Petplan offers a range of insurance packages for dogs, cats and rabbits, and their 10% donation isn’t only available to people rehoming an animal from Blue Cross. Visit www.petplan/bluecross for a quote and 10% of your premium will be donated to Blue Cross.
