Who We Are

Working closely with the Petfinder organization, Animal Welfare Insurance Program (AWIP) was formed to assist the membership of Petfinder in obtaining low cost insurance for the unique exposures associated with animal rescue groups and shelters.

AWIP currently provides an online program where rescue groups can purchase a $1,000,000 General liability policy for approximately $980 or less. This policy is available nationwide and protects rescue groups from the majority of their activities, including fostering, off site adoption events and fundraising events.

Our  Program is available to ALL Rescue Groups and has NO BREED Exclusion or limitations.

For Shelters, AWIP has access to several programs and carriers to provide the proper coverage including auto, general liability, property, Workers Compensation and Umbrella liability.

AWIP also has available to both rescue groups and shelters a comprehensive , low cost Directors and Officers policy specifically designed for non profit organizations. This important coverage protects your Board members assets and is frequently overlooked. AWIP has made this available at a very low cost for members.
