We are so thrilled to continue to grow our exciting shelter program. This week we have two new shelters to add to the list: The Monmouth County SPCA of Freehold New Jersey, and the Guilford County Animal Shelter in Greensboro, North Carolina. At no cost to adoptive families, both shelters will now offer 30 days of pet insurance coverage provided by Trupanion. This program offers new pet parents the financial peace of mind that the costs of unexpected accidents of injuries will be covered by Trupanion at 90%.
The pets at both shelters are all examined by veterinary teams and provided with detailed medical records of any treatments received at the shelters. With these records, we are able to determine any pre-existing conditions and cover everything else at 90% less a $250 deductible. As always, our coverage has no payout limits per year, per condition, or over the entire lifetime of the pet. An addition to the shelter program is that coverage starts immediately, with no waiting periods.
“Animals from all over the county come to us for a wide variety of reasons. One of the saddest we see is when families who love their pet simply cannot afford the necessary medical treatment their animal requires,” said Marsha Williams, the director at Guilford County Animal Shelter. “Trupanion’s program allows us to help adoptive families ensure that they will always be able to afford the best care for their new pet. This is just one more way we can ensure lasting love and care for the animals we place,” added Monmouth County SPCA’s President, Jerry Rosenthal.
We hope to continue to expand the program in the months to come, reaching out to more and more shelters across both the United States and Canada.
