The American Kennel Club has partnered with PetPartners, which sold its first pet health care policy in the U.S. in 2003, but their history goes back to the 1980′s. That’s when John Spurling purchased and developed pet health care insurance, exclusively for the Kennel Club of Great Britain, into one of the leading pet insurance innovators. Later, he launched PetPartners in the United Kingdom and then in the United States. Now, with over 30 years of experience, they have a proven track record in pet insurance for dogs and cats.

Since 2003, PetPartners has been the exclusive provider of pet health insurance protection to registrants of the American Kennel Club through the AKC Pet Healthcare Plans. In 2004, they got selected by the Cat Fanciers’ Association, the largest registry of pedigreed cats, to provide pet insurance to CFA registrants. In 2009, PetPartners began to offer  PetPartners-branded products both to individuals and groups (such as associations, companies and credit unions).

PetPartners’ policies are underwritten by Markel Insurance Co. of Richmond, VA, one of the 50 largest insurance companies in the United States and rated “A Excellent” by A.M. Best Company.

PetPartners is known for  excellent and hassle-free customer service by licensed agents. Their pet insurance coverage is trustworthy, convenient and reliable with a quick 15-day claims turn around.

Policies are available in all 50 states, they are a  NAPHIA member!

Pets get into scrapes, their curious natures lead them into trouble and things just happen to them despite the best of intentions.
