Safe Housing programs at domestic violence organizations will need to consult with their insurance providers to see if their current plan covers pets or if additional coverage will be needed. Insurance can be challenging as some carriers will not cover pets, or will have breed restrictions in place, but there are insurance providers out there who can help. You may want to check with your animal organization partner to see if their insurance provider can work with you.
Safe Housing programs at animal shelters will likely not need additional insurance, but we recommend consulting your insurance provider to be sure.
