At the National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT), we believe that pet insurance is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. Whilst adopting a rescued or stray dog is an exciting and rewarding time for both you and your new pet, it is also important for you to consider the financial implications should your pet suffer from any unexpected illnesses and injuries.

That’s why we work in partnership with Petplan, the UK’s favourite pet insurer, to enable owners to make decisions purely in the best interests of their pet’s health and happiness, without having to consider the personal financial cost.  Petplan are committed to keeping pets healthy and owners happy, which is why over 90% of their customers renew each year.

Having a good pet insurance policy allows you to concentrate on what’s best for your pet, knowing help is there for the cost of unexpected treatment. However it’s important to be aware that not all pet insurance is the same. Some policies limit the amount of time or money that you can claim for so don’t just shop around on price alone.

What’s more, when you take out a full policy on your NAWT pet, Petplan will give 10% of your premium to NAWT and a further 10% each year you renew your policy. This money helps NAWT to look after all of the animals in their care, keeping pets safe and warm in the rehoming centres until they find happy new homes.

So that the animals rehomed from NAWT have the very best start in their new homes, NAWT works with Petplan to give all rehomed dogs, cats and rabbits four weeks’ free insurance to offer you financial peace of mind.

Please note: if you’re about to rehome a pet from the National Animal Welfare Trust, you will automatically receive four free weeks’ Petplan insurance which starts on the day you take your pet home.
