There are some pet insurers that are partnered with animal charities. There are others that are known to give large donations to animal charities. They offer prices just as competitive as pet insurers who do not donate to animal charities, or donate very little. We have compiled a list of pet insurers who give back, below. By supporting them over other per insurers, you will help them save more animals from suffering.

Why Get Pet Insurance?
Considering that round 50% of pets require veterinary treatment every year, it is a good idea to have pet insurance. If you consider yourself a responsible pet owner, then you probably have pet insurance. Once you have it, you do not need to worry about any unexpected large vets bills that may run in to thousands. Many pet owners without insurance are left devastated when they cannot afford the treatment their pet needs. Often, the only alternatives are to let the pet suffer or put it to sleep.
A bonus of getting pet insurance, if you use one of the pet insurers listed on this page, is that you can help animals desperately in need at the same time as protecting your own pet.
