Our mission is to ensure healthier, longer lives for pets and peace of mind for their people.
MORE THAN PET INSURANCE
We're dedicated to providing pet parents with the support, resources and tools they need to keep their pets not just surviving, but thriving long into old age. Simply put, we aim to be the kind of company that will make our pets proud.
petplan in dog years
In 2001, we were two Wharton students whose $5,000 vet bill inspired a vision: to create the world's leading pet health company.
Today, we're a company of over 200 passionate pet parents continuing our mission to create a better world for animals — and the humans who love them.

From a skeleton staff that started out of an apartment to a company that today fills two floors of office space, we've been lucky to have passionate and talented people supporting us along the way.

shake paws with our partners
We seek partners who share our vision and support pet health and animal welfare, and we're proud to consider these companies family.
Through Petplanthopy, our corporate philanthropic initiative, we share our time and our resources to build a better world for animals. As part of our overall initiative, we make quarterly financial contributions to our select partner shelters, rescues and humane societies across the country.
- For every policy sold, Petplan matches donations made to the National Police Dog Foundation to promote education and awareness for the purchase, training and ongoing veterinary care for active and retired policy K-9s.
- For every Petplan-protected family member that crosses the Rainbow Bridge, Petplan donates $15 to Morris Animal Foundation in their memory.
- Each employee has the opportunity to spend a day volunteering with a cause that is near and dear to them, in exchange for one day of paid time off.
