About Petplan

A cat named Bodie and $5,000 vet bill inspired our vision to protect animals and their families from life’s most unexpected moments.

Today, we’re a company of passionate pet parents on a mission to create a better world for animals—and the humans who love them.

A better breed of pet insurance

As animal lovers ourselves, we strive to give our pets long, happy lives. As a pet insurance provider, we strive to deliver the most comprehensive coverage available, giving families peace of mind. Simply put, we aim to be the kind of company that will make our pets proud.

Join the pack

Our office is the opposite of what’d you’d expect from an insurance provider. From the indoor dog park with its multi-level slide to the foster cat room where we help felines find their forever homes, our unique company culture sets us apart.

We have photos of our clients’ pets featured throughout our office, because we view them as family. If your motto in life is “Be the person your dog thinks you are” then Petplan is the place for you.

Top dog moments

Our innovative approach to pet insurance has been recognized by Forbes, Ernst & Young, Financial Times, Bloomberg and Inc. Magazine, among others.

Our partners

We seek partners who share our vision to support pet health and animal welfare. We’re proud to consider these companies family.

The Petplan Charitable Fund

Through our philanthropic initiative, we share our time and resources to build a better world for animals. The Petplan Charitable Fund aims to promote the health and welfare of the nation’s animals and awards funding to a host of well-deserved causes. This includes everything from non-invasive research on life-saving treatments to donations for rehoming charities.

Our pet insurance underwriter

Petplan policies are underwritten in the US by XL Specialty Insurance Company, and in Canada by XL Specialty Insurance Company—Canadian Branch. Together, we’re excited to innovate ways to help pets have happier, healthier lives.
