Animal welfare is at the heart of what we do. Find out how we’ve worked with local, national and international charities in 2020 to help protect some of the world’s most beloved and vulnerable animals.

Did you know Animal Friends Pet Insurance was established in order to donate to animal charities?

Animal Friends was founded in 1998 with the sole aim of providing pet insurance as a means to help support animal welfare charities both in the UK and around the world.

This aim is at the core of what we do and so far we have donated millions to all sorts of animal charities. From local rescues run by volunteers to massive international organisations, we will consider all requests for help and consider ourselves privileged to be able to help vulnerable animals.

We couldn’t do this without our brilliant customers because every pet insurance policy bought by them enables us to help nurture and save neglected animals wherever we can.

Our Focus

Here at Animal Friends we are not only strong advocates for the welfare of animals, but also for the environment.

We are profoundly concerned about national and local issues such as habitat and ecosystem conservation, plastic use, waste reduction, the use of palm oil, deforestation, climate change and global warming. As a growing company, we believe each individual can actively make a difference.

We understand there is no ‘quick fix’ to these problems, so we strive to educate and encourage our employees and customers to be mindful, and why we support charities such as WDC, Wildlife Aid, Marine Conservation Charity and Tusk.

The £100k Charity Giveaway

In 2018 we launched our first £100k Charity Giveaway with StreetVet receiving the biggest number of votes, and Celia Hammond and the Bumblebee Conservation Trusts as the runners up. We decided to launch the Giveaway again this year, giving people the chance to vote between this year’s charities and to help make a difference.

We’re proud to announce the winner of the £100k is Four Paws, with Whale and Dolphin Conservation and Bats Conservation Trust receiving £15,000 each.

Keep your eyes peeled for next year’s giveaway.
