General Liability and Directors and Officers Insurance specifically
designed for the employees, volunteers and board members

AWIP helps to support the animal welfare community by donating a portion of its revenue, proceeds and
profits to the Petfinder Foundation.

Working closely with Petfinder, AWIP has developed a much needed low cost General liability policy for rescue groups that provides $1,000,000 of coverage.

Insurance for volunteers
Insurance for volunteers

For many animal rescue groups and shelters, volunteers are the front line in fulfilling your organization’s mission. Without their help and assistance many of the services and events you provide would go undone. The AWIP Accident & Health plan Pays for the medical expenses incurred should a volunteer experience a mishap while in your service. Our plan covers up to 100 volunteers for $300 per year.
