FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Stouffville, ON (January 14, 2019) – The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society believes animals deserve the best care possible, which is why we have decided to relaunch our insurance program with the new SPCA & Humane Society Pet Insurance offered by Petplan®.
By partnering with a global leading pet insurance provider in Petplan, this will ensure pets get the best treatment they need when an unexpected illness or injury occurs. Not only will pet owners enjoy the peace of mind that they’re helping protect their four-legged friends, but they can also feel good knowing that a portion of proceeds go back to SPCA’s and Humane Societies, like the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society to help animals in need.
The coverage through the SPCA & Humane Society Pet Insurance offered by Petplan is as unique as pet owners and their pets and can be customized to fit their needs and budget. It also offers one of the most comprehensive coverages and shortest waiting periods in the industry.
Planning for unforeseen health issues and accidents can help alleviate the financial burden and stress when a pet needs medical attention, giving pet owners peace of mind. According to Petplan claims data, one in three pets makes an unplanned trip to the vet each year—and Canadian pet parents spent an average of $1,103 per pet on unexpected veterinary expenses last year alone!
“As a not-for-profit organization focused on animal wellness, we encourage pet owners to have a plan in place to ensure they are able to provide the necessary care for their pet should the unexpected occur,” says Daryl Vaillancourt, Chief of Humane Programs & Community Outreach, Ontario SPCA. “One of the best ways pet owners can help their pets, and protect themselves from unexpected costs, is pet insurance.”
Petplan is the pet insurance that's trusted by shelters and helps animals in need. To get a quote or to learn more about the new SPCA & Humane Society Pet Insurance offered by Petplan visit gopetplan.ca/spcahs
