The insurance trial is available for adopted dogs and cats, according to the Humane Society. Adopters who extend their coverage can do so starting at $26 per month for cats and $32 per month for dogs. According to the Humane Society, rising veterinary costs for pets has caused pet insurance to be more common.
“The decision to adopt a rescue animal is one of the most satisfying decisions a family can make — and we are excited to be able to take a little worry out of that decision,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, president and CEO of the San Diego Humane Society. “A month of insurance is an exciting benefit of adopting through San Diego Humane Society.”
