We have partnered with Petplan, the UK’s No.1 pet insurance provider, so that the dogs and cats rehomed from our centres have the very best start in their new homes. Petplan give all our rehomed dogs and cats four weeks’ free insurance as they settle into life in their new homes.

At Battersea we recommend Petplan because they have a range of options, including their signature Covered For Life® policies which provide continuous cover for vet fees year after year, providing there is no break in cover.

It’s important to remember that not all pet insurance is the same. Some policies limit the amount of time or money that you can claim for, so we recommend that you don’t choose a policy based on price alone. With a Petplan Covered For Life® policy you know your pet is in safe hands.

What’s more, take out a policy today, and Petplan will give 10% of your premium to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and a further 10% each year you renew your policy. This money helps dogs and cats less fortunate than your own. This 10% donation isn’t only available to people rehoming an animal from Battersea but for anyone with a pet.
