Every Quote Gives Hope™
Our pet-passionate team has been on the front lines of animal rescue, providing critical care and placing pets in happy homes. We know that every homeless pet needs medical care before having a chance at being adopted into a caring family. To address this fundamental need, we created the Healthy Paws' Every Quote Gives Hope™ program. The simple act of getting a pet insurance quote from Healthy Paws results in a donation towards a homeless pet's medical care. We deliver that care by making cash grants to pet adoption organizations specifically for life-saving vaccines, spay/neuter surgeries, and advanced medical treatments.

Pet insurance reimburses the pet parent after treatment.
- The pet parent takes their pet to their favorite veterinarian when sick or injured.
- The pet parent pays the veterinarian at time of treatment.
- The pet parent submits a claim to Healthy Paws.
- Healthy Paws sends the reimbursement check directly to the pet parent within 3-10 days.
Some pet insurance companies offer wellness coverage at an additional cost or incorporate it into one of their myriad of plans. When an insurance company reimburses for “expected” treatments like an annual exam, typically they will restrict coverage or payouts on the more important and higher cost accidents and illnesses to give this perceived benefit of wellness coverage.
Insurance is about protecting yourself from the unexpected. Auto insurance pays for that unexpected car collision or home insurance covers the unexpected water damage or fire. These do not cover expected maintenance. If they did, premiums would be quite expensive!
Pet insurance therefore should be about protecting you and your pet when they are sick or injured. Unlike wellness care, these are the conditions you cannot plan for in advance and can easily cost in the thousands of dollars. After all, no one wants to be faced with skipping an important treatment for their pet or, worse case, euthanizing their pet simply because they cannot afford veterinary care.
Healthy Paws premiums are calculated based on your individual pet’s breed, age and zip code.
- Cat health plans typically range from $15 and $35 per month.
- Dog health plans typically range from $25 and $45 per month.
