A few years ago, my husband and I went to an "adopt-a-thon" at our local shelter and came home with Ernie - a loud and fiesty black and white spotted cat. New to pet ownership, we didn't even think about pet insurance. A few months after we brought him home, Ernie's curiosity sent him to the emergency room with a broken front leg. We knew we would do whatever we needed to to help Ernie get better but we were amazed at how much it cost us! This sent us on the hunt for pet insurance. There are many options out there but we were drawn to Healthy Paws because not only did they offer affordable and thorough coverage but we loved the company's commitment to working with shelters and helping animals to find homes. I have also been very impressed with Healthy Paws' customer service. Based on my own experiences and those of my family and friends who are also insured with them, it is clear that the focus of Heathy Paws is really on the health and happiness of animals and their families. It is a comfort to know we will be taken care of should our crazy kitty decide to use up another of those nine lives!
