The National Police Dog Foundation’s K-9 Health Insurance Fund
Petplan offers NPDF supporters, family and friends a 10% discount on pet health insurance.
National Police Dog Foundation (NPDF) and Petplan wish to help offset the health insurance costs of active and retired police dogs. NPDF and Petplan have set up two ways to do this:
- NPDF through a Petplan sponsorship, now offers law enforcement agencies, NPDF supporters, family and friends a 10%* online discount on pet health insurance, when using promo code NPDF10.
- With the generous support of Petplan, NPDF has also been able to establish a special K-9 Health Insurance Fund that will help insure these selfless K-9 heroes into retirement.
Veterinary treatment for everything from hereditary disease to on-the-job injuries can run in the thousands, but Petplan reimburses up to 90% of the bills. And because Petplan offers a fully customizable policy, each plan can be tailor-made for the individual police dog it protects.
“K-9 officers provide protection, loyalty and unwavering support—and we think they deserve the same in turn,” says Chris Ashton, co-founder and co-CEO of Petplan. “As a former Captain in the British Royal Marines, I know the hard work it takes to live a life of service. For a dog to fulfill that duty is truly exceptional. The least we can do for these retired heroes is to help preserve their quality of life in their golden years.”
“Pet insurance provides peace of mind that our retired veterans will always get the best care, regardless of cost,” says Jim Reilly, NPDF President. “We set up this fund with Petplan to offset the expense of pet insurance premiums for the dog’s handlers. Our hope is that by making sure their health is taken care of, our dogs can go on to live full and happy lives when their days of service are done.”
