I purchased ASPCA pet insurance in February of 2011, after I adopted my beautiful, sweet golden retriever/ pit bull mix from the humane society here in Northern Virginia. I adopted her after losing my Akita ( also a rescue with special needs. We had the insurance for almost five years before I needed to use it, and I am so glad we have it.My dog, completely tore her ACL and needed surgery to repair it. Her surgery was a complete success, and after her 12 week recovery she is doing incredibly well. ASPCA insurance covered a very huge portion of the surgery, medications and care she needed. The ASPCA agents were so lovely they handled my claim in record time, and phoned to follow up on her status and repair.. The entire experience was so rewarding, and personable. I have told all my friends and family members who own dogs ( pets) that they really do need pet insurance for their beloved furry children, and I strongly recommended ASPCA pet insurance.
