About the Pet Carers Industry

The pet care and boarding sector is a big business, serving up to 49% of all UK adults, and their 20 million pets[1]. Indeed, it is estimated that pet owners spend at least £7.16 billion on their animals every year.2

Of course, every cattery or kennel is different, from size and location to the services it offers – but all face a broad range of risks. Premises and pets must be protected, while working with animals creates risk for staff and visitors.

In the end it is up to business owners and managers to think about these risks, and arrange insurance to help defend their businesses, staff, and their customers, against unexpected incidents.

Why Insurance is Important for the Pet Carers

Regardless of the pet care or boarding sector your business is in, it is important to understand the risks to your business, staff and customers, and prepare for them.

Pet boarding and care insurance offers tailored protection for catteries and kennels. One of our expert brokers will help you to work out the insurance you need, as well as making clear if any aspects of your business fall outside of that cover.

Business insurance covers a range of risks that can affect the pet care industries including, public liability, employers liability, and product liability. Then there are additional covers that you may need, like buildings and contents cover, and business interruption. If, for instance, a fire damages your building and disrupts the normal running of your business, business interruption can help to cover lost earnings until everything is back to normal.

You may also want to cover stock or equipment theft, loss or damage, while pet care cover can also protect against illness or injury befalling pets in your care, and even help cover the cost of finding lost animals.

We're passionate about protecting small businesses. So, no matter whether yours is a cattery, kennel, or pet boarding business, speak to an insurance expert about taking out the cover you need to protect your staff, customers and livelihood should the unforeseen happen.
