Pet Insurance for Rescue Dogs

Join other UK Rescue Dog owners to demand fairer pet insurance and claim our 20% discount!

About this group

There are 9 million pet dogs in the UK in a quarter of all households. Most are loved and cared-for members of the family, but too many are neglected, abused or abandoned.

Fortunately, people like you are giving these neglected animals a loving home. We want to reward this so we’ve negotiated an exclusive 20% discount on More Than pet insurance.

Rescue dogs can be just as lovable and affectionate as any other pooch, despite the hardships they may have faced. The RSPCA’s 2016 Rufts awards will bring a tear to your eye but it shows how the right homes can bring happiness to all dogs.

Many people wrongly believe it is not possible to find pure breed dogs in rescue shelters, however, various pedigree dogs, including Border Collies, Staffies and different Terriers sadly end up in rescue centres every day. Whether you are looking for a pure breed, a cross breed or a mongrel, you can give a dog a happy future.

When it comes to insurance, rescue dogs pose a dilemma. Mongrels are generally cheaper to insure because they have fewer health issues than pedigree dogs, but with rescues, it is often impossible to know their origins and genetic make-up. And abuse and neglect can add to their health issues.

By joining this group, you club together with other rescue dog owners and can access an exclusive 20% off on More Than pet insurance.

Top questions answered by us

  • What if I don't know my dog's date of birth?

    Any dog rehomed through a charity will usually have had a medical exam prior to rehoming, and the vet should have come up with an estimated DOB. Alternatively, if you rescued your dog from the street, your vet can examine it to approximate the DOB.

    Hi I had my rescue insurance with More Than before, but they hiked my premium up on 2nd year renewal so much it was mad, despite no claim. I would like to return to them, as they have a much better review than our existing company, but I am nervous about what happens next year. My rescue will turn 7 at the end of this year, so I need to be really careful about keeping her lifetime cover. Would love some feedback please. Thanks!

NOT via here. entered the exact same details as i did when I went via this group. the quote i got via this site was... £21.40 (THIS IS WITH A DISCOUNT) the quote is got via MORE THAN OWN WEBSITE.... $12.76 (WITHOUT A DISCOUNT) i wud like to know what the hell is going on here. IS THIS GROUP SOME SORT OF SCAM??????????

  • avatar for HeidiHeidi (Bought By Many staff) 1 year, 8 months ago

    Hi Tracie, sorry for the delay in coming back to you. I was out of the office yesterday! Ok, in order to see a difference in price, you will need to delete your cookies (by visiting the More Than website directly first, the site has 'remembered' you and therefore has not correctly applied your discount). If you delete the cookies, then check back through Bought By Many, you should see the reduction in price. Please note, the website takes off the discount automatically, so you will not see anything to say that it has been reduced, it should just be lower than when you went to More Than directly! Kind regards, Heidi

    HOW DO I KNOW IF THE ''GROUP'' DISCOUNT HAS BEEN APPLIED? It doesn't say anywhere on the quote form that is has.

    We will be fostering a dog from Cyprus. The rescue would struggle to pay any vet bills if needed. Can I get insurance? Would be grateful for any advice

  • avatar for HeidiHeidi (Bought By Many staff) 1 year, 8 months ago

    Hi there Jean, just to clarify, are you living in Cyprus or the UK? (once I know, I can give you a bit more of a comprehensive answer!!) Many thanks, Heidi
