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
  • Effective immediately upon activation
  • 90% coverage*
  • No payout limits*

*Coverage begins at activation, and is available at any veterinary hospital, emergency care center or specialty hospital in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. Terms and conditions apply. Please read our sample policy for details.

For the Shelter:

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

“Max & I are thankful for Trupanion. They truly do pay 90% of my actual vet bill. Max has already had 2 knee surgeries and I have no idea how I would have paid it without Trupanion. Thank You from Max & I.”
