Animal Shelter Wish List

animal shelter appreciationThis week is National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week! We’re proud to partner with animal shelters across the country to find furever homes for our furry friends. When you adopt a pet from one of our partner shelters, we’ll provide 30 days of pet insurance coverage for your new family member. But there are lots of ways that you can help your local animal shelter this week even if you don’t have room to bring home a new pet! Consider donating some much-needed items from this wish list to your local shelter to show how much you appreciate what they do for your community.
