Trupanion Pet Insurance for New Pets

We love all the work that shelters and rescues do for animals and we invite you to join our Shelter Support Program.

Trupanion is made up of a team of pet lovers, many of whom have adopted or rescued their own pets, which means we get it. We fully support your efforts to find loving homes for each and every pet. In fact, we want to help you by offering this great program to help ensure that these pets have a happy, healthy start in their new homes.

The Trupanion Shelter Support Program is a simple program with a big heart. It gives shelter pets a chance to start life in their new homes with Trupanion coverage and provides a way for your organization to raise funds at the same time. It’s how we help adopters prepare for the unexpected and help you continue doing the great work you do.

For the adopters:

  • 30 days of coverage
  • Coverage begins at activation, and is available at any veterinary hospital, emergency care center or specialty hospital in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico
  • 90% coverage*
  • No payout limits*

For the shelter:

  • All the materials and tools you need
  • Ongoing support and reporting
  • Donations for each certificate application
  • Confidence that you are sending your pets to their new homes with a great start


How does it work?

  1. We provide your shelter with all the materials, training and ongoing support that you need.

  2. You send each dog, cat, puppy or kitten home with a Trupanion Certificate and remind them to activate their coverage with Trupanion.

  3. Adopters activate their coverage with Trupanion by answering a couple of simple questions (no credit card information required).

  4. Your organization receives donations from Trupanion!

* Terms and conditions apply. See our policy for details. Residents of WA or CA see our policy here. Residents of all other states, Puerto Rico, and Canada, see our policy here

    The x-rays, surgeries, medications and check-up visits to our veterinarian totaled over $10,000 and Trupanion paid 90%. Without Trupanion, we don’t know how we would have paid for Bella's treatment... Thanks to Trupanion for all they are doing for Bella.

    Testimonial text
    Trupanion helped save Noodle and all the people who love him. I've recommended Trupanion to everyone with a pet, and plan to offer it to my employees and gift a year's worth of coverage to my friends who can't afford plans... I can't thank them enough for their help.

    Testimonial text
    Though Rocky is only a year old, we have filed claims with Trupanion several times. On each occasion, it has been a breeze to be reimbursed and they are very helpful if there are ever questions about eligibility. I couldn't recommend a pet insurance company more highly!

    To make a long story short, my sweet Ruby has had multiple surgeries but still lives a very happy albeit slow life. She is my absolute joy, and I owe my continued time with her to Trupanion. Thank you with all my heart for everything you have done for Ruby.

    Testimonial text
    We are so thankful to Trupanion for covering the multiple surgeries Winnie has had. We knew when we got Winnie, she could have health issues related to her breed – an English bulldog. One look at her as a puppy and we knew that she was meant to be ours. We looked into pet insurance and decided to go with Trupanion after reading some of the testimonials. We have not regretted our decision.
