Did you know that the ASPCA sells pet insurance? They have a wealth of information on their website that will teach you all about what pet insurance is for, why you need it, and more. If you have questions about pet insurance, you can probably find the answer somewhere on the ASPCA website.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the very first humane society that was established in the United States. They were founded in 1866 by Henry Bergh.
They have a program called ASPCA Mission: Orange which works toward ending the unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable pets. They work to pass laws that protect animals. They have established the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, which can help you to get the information you need if your pet ingests something that is poisonous.
In addition to these efforts, the ASPCA want to help you pay for your pet’s veterinary care by providing affordable pet insurance. They do not want pet owners to have to make a choice between their pet’s well-being, and their personal finances.
Pet insurance is a type of insurance policy that pet owners can use to help pay their veterinary bills for their dog or cat. If your pet gets into an accident, or has an illness, you will need to take him or her to see a veterinarian. This will generate a bill. You can think of pet insurance as a health insurance policy for your dogs and cats.
In addition to regular check-ups, pet insurance can cover some of the more expensive health care that your pet requires. Veterinarians might use an MRI, or chemotherapy, to treat a dog or cat who has developed cancer, for example. Older pets might develop a chronic condition that is typical of their breed. A pet may become seriously injured in an accident, and require surgery. Pet insurance can help cover at least some portion of those types of bills.
The ASPCA offers four levels of pet insurance. Each level gives you 80% reimbursement of usual and customary covered charges. Each one has a $100 annual deductible per pet. The higher levels of pet insurance will give you a 10% discount if you insure multiple pets. Their pet insurance comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. They will give you a free quote, when you are ready to get started.
