Are You Barking Up the Wrong Tree?!?

"The insurance agent didn't have a clue what we do!"

NOT TO WORRY!. The team members at AWOIP (Animal Welfare Organization Insurance Program), are the experts in providing insurance for animal shelters, foster-based animal rescues, humane societies, cat sanctuaries, bunny rescues, reptile rescues, donkey shelters and lots of other animal organizations like yours. After all, we were founded on the belief that all animals matter and understand the importance of working with an insurance agency that is focused on your animals well-being.  That is why we work with companies that developed insurance programs that include all dog breeds, coverage for volunteer accidents, fostered animals, and adoption events.  We speak your language, understand your daily exposures and provide solutions to protect your animal shelters, humane societies, and rescues while minimizing the risks you face. Animal Shelters, foster based animal rescues, humane societies, and SPCA's put hard work into protecting animals and shouldn't have to lose sleep over proper insurance protection.

Today's challenging times (with funding cuts, decreases in donations, and an increase in the number of animals who need help across the country) make it even more crucial for animal shelters and humane societies to understand the insurance programs available and how they can help protect the organization in the long run.  Insurance is often one of the first items cuts from animal welfare organization's annual budget because of the expense and lack of funding. Not having insurance in place can be even more costly to an animal welfare organization like yours though. Not having insurance leaves you open to undefended lawsuits and increased stress, aggravation, and loss of time trying to fix everything!  It is important that you review your current insurance policy to make sure there are no hidden exclusions and that you are protected for what matters most. Some types of insurance policies you may want to consider include:

  • General Liability Insurance
  • Professional Liability Insurance
  • Directors & Officers Liability Insurance
  • Commercial Property Insurance
  • Special Event/ Fundraiser Insurance
  • Volunteer Accident & Health Insurance
  • Cyber Liability Insurance
  • Worker's Compensation Insurance 

For a more comprehensive explanation of these insurance coverages, please visit the animal rescue and shelter resource page.

Animal Welfare Organization Insurance Program will partner with you to help you understand your insurance protection policies, how they protect your organization, and why they are important to your nonprofit animal welfare organization. The AWOIP team will work diligently with you to create a  customized insurance protection package specific to your needs and the needs of your animals. To request an insurance quote today, complete an online animal shelter insurance quote form or call 800-673-2558!
