Shelter and Rescue Support

At PetPartners, we value the inspiring work that animal shelters and rescue groups accomplish, which is why our shelter and rescue program is dedicated to helping with the well-being of each dog and cat for the first month of adoption. 

PetPartners provides 30 days of pet insurance coverage for newly adopted dogs and cats in participating shelters and rescues. We understand that the transition into a new home can come with a few unexpected surprises and want to give pet parents peace of mind during the first month as their pet adjusts.

How does it work?

  1. We provide materials for you to share with families who adopt.
  2. At adoption, you give the 30 days of pet insurance form to the new pet parents. 
  3. Pet parents can activate the coverage online or by phone.
  4. If the pet gets injured or ill within the coverage period, pet parents can visit ANY licensed vet and submit a claim to us.
  5. You will receive continued partnership opportunities from PetPartners.
