Insurance Coverage for Heroes’ Pets

Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. is partnering with non-profit Pets2Vets to provide insurance policies to pets adopted by veterans through the Pets2Vets program.

Pets2Vets matches active military, veterans, first responders, and their families with at-risk shelter animals nationwide. The organization’s goals are to alleviate the psychological suffering of servicemen and women and to reduce the number of shelter animals euthanized in the U.S.

Through the partnership, Pets2Vets will cover first year premium for the pets of qualifying servicemen and women under a VPI Major Medical plan – the most comprehensive coverage protection offered by Brea, Calif.-based VPI. The pets will also be covered under a Careguard Core rider, which covers expenses related to vaccinations, flea protection and other preventive routine care benefits.

“We know first-hand that the bond between people and pets can have an incredible healing power,” says Dennis Drent, president and CEO of VPI. “This new relationship will allow Pets2Vets to continue to ease the transition back into society for these servicemen and women while providing further peace of mind with health care coverage for their rescued companions.”
