Giving Back to Help Homeless Pets

With your quote, you give medical care to a homeless pet in need. And with your enrollment, you join our movement to help the millions of homeless pets have a happier, healthier tomorrow!

Every Quote Gives Hope™
We wanted to address the fundamental need of pet medical care by creating the Healthy Paws Foundation's Every Quote Gives Hope™ program. The simple act of getting a pet insurance quote from Healthy Paws results in a donation towards a homeless pet's medical care. We deliver that care by making cash grants to pet adoption organizations specifically for life-saving vaccines, spay/neuter surgeries, and advanced medical treatments.

help a homeless pet

These special non-profit organizations have each received an Every Quote Gives Hope medical grant to help the animals in their care. Each month we award grants to deserving rescue organizations and shelters. Check out the latest stories on our blog!
