Thanks to Petplan who have raised over £5 million to help thousands of cats and kittens.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Petplan® which has given an amazing £5 million to Cats Protection since the beginning of our partnership in 2001. This huge achievement is a testament to the great partnership between Cats Protection and Petplan®, which has brought many benefits to help the cats in our care.

By providing every cat we rehome with four weeks’ free insurance, Petplan® supports our branches and centres to give every cat the best start when leaving Cats Protection’s care. Whenever a Cats Protection adopter continues their cover onto a full policy from their four weeks’ free insurance, Petplan® gives 10% of the premium back to the charity and a further 10% each year the policy is renewed. In addition, supporters can get a quote via which will also trigger 10% of the premium to be donated when the policy is taken out.


Pepper’s story


grey cat

Thanks to a policy with Petplan®, 11-year-old Pepper from Cats Protection’s Downpatrick Branch was able to receive the care he needed. Pepper’s owner Andree Brown tells her story:

“Pepper was approximately 11 years old, but despite his age, we were able to have a covered for life policy with Petplan® because we continued his cover from the four weeks’ free policy he was rehomed with. It was a relatively short phone call and everything was set up for me.”

Andree never had pet insurance before and was later grateful for the cover when she noticed Pepper was drinking excessively and diagnosed with diabetes. Andree’s local veterinary practice dealt with all the claims and she only had her excess and 20% of the cost of the treatment to pay.

“I would highly recommend that if someone is taking on a cat, especially one that is older and the history is unknown, that they continue with a full Petplan® policy. Although pre-existing medical conditions aren’t covered, you are covered for anything new and unrelated. It has paid dividends with me.”

Pepper is one of many cats at Cats Protection who benefit from the insurance cover that Petplan® provides. If you would like to get a quote for your pet and help support Cats Protection at the same time, please visit:
