Since its inception in 1976, Petplan’s priority has been to keep the nation’s pets healthy and their owners happy. It offers a range of pet insurance policies and comprehensive customer service – helping millions of owners get their beloved pets back on their feet following illness and injury.

Thanks to our ongoing partnership, Petplan provides four weeks’ free insurance to all dogs and cats rehomed from our centres. This invaluable support gives new families peace of mind by providing a new pet with insurance for their first few weeks in their new home.

At Battersea we are committed to giving every dog and cat that comes to us the best possible care and attention, which is why we recommend pet insurance for all our rehomers. Petplan have a range of cover options, including their signature Covered For Life policies, meaning new families can have peace of mind for their pets.

There are a number of pet insurers on the market, and we encourage re-homers to research the right plan for them. Find out more about protecting your pet with pet insurance.
