Press release: Westminster Kennel Club
The Westminster Kennel Club is proud to welcome Trupanion, a leader in medical insurance for pets, as the official pet insurance provider for the 145th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Presented by Purina Pro Plan.
“The Westminster Kennel Club is excited to partner with Trupanion as they celebrate their 20th anniversary of providing quality medical insurance for dogs and creating initiatives to support responsible breeding,” said Westminster Kennel Club Ppresident Charlton Reynders, III. This partnership aligns with Westminster’s mission of enhancing the lives of all dogs, celebrating canine companionship, promoting responsible dog ownership, and breed preservation.
“Trupanion is thrilled to exclusively partner with the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show as the official medical insurance for pets sponsor. Westminster is the premier dog event in the country, and we’re excited to work together to raise awareness on the importance of high-quality medical insurance to help the pets we all love receive the best veterinary care. At Trupanion, we strive to provide owners peace of mind, so when their pet is sick or injured, they can focus on their pet’s care and not the cost of the bill,” said Chloe Gill, head of the Trupanion Breeder Support Program.
In addition to offering the most comprehensive, highest quality product and unequaled 24/7/365 customer support, Trupanion is the only provider with patented software that can pay claims directly to the veterinarian at the time of check-out, often within seconds. Trupanion also provides a robust Breeder Support Program which offers breeders reporting data of litters, starter kits for puppy buyers, and community support through a private social media group.
The Westminster Kennel Club, established in 1877, is America’s oldest organization dedicated to the sport of dogs. It hosts the iconic, all-breed Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the second-longest, continuously held sporting event in the U.S., and since 1948, the longest nationally televised live dog show.
