PIA – Supporting Greyhound Adoption
With the recent blanket ban on Greyhound Racing in New South Wales, Pet Insurance Australia has announced a 25% discount off one year’s premium for any newly insured Greyhound pet.
“This includes any Greyhounds from anywhere in Australia until the end of October,” explains Nadia Crighton, a spokesperson for Pet Insurance Australia. “Meaning huge benefits for those wanting to welcome one of these precious hounds into their home.”
“We hope this great saving will help encourage people to consider re-homing a Greyhound,” reveals Crighton. “As we expect the number of Greyhounds who need homes to greatly increase over the next two months.”
Greyhounds are well-known in the dog industry, not only for their love of running, but also for their gentle and loving natures.
“They make wonderful companion animals and we encourage anyone who has thought about adopting before, to consider opening their home up to a Greyhound.”
Eligible benefits of the insurance won’t be attributable to injuries or conditions that were directly related to, or sustained while the Greyhound was racing. Many adopted Greyhounds come with a full medical history from their previous owners and trainers.
“Like with all pre-disposed conditions, we encourage our clients to read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) to ensure that they fully understand what their pet insurance policy covers.”
It is also highly advisable that new owners ask for the full medical and history of the Greyhound, which they are adopting. Many of the wonderful Greyhound shelters re-train these amazing animals to become the perfect house pet. Greyhounds who have achieved ‘green collar’ status are also able to walk in public without the need for a muzzle.
Pet Insurance Australia hopes this initiative helps all new Greyhound owners to have access to affordable and reputable pet insurance. So that they can keep their wonderful new family member healthy.
“PIA is hopeful that this new initiative will help encourage more people to adopt one of these beautiful hounds,” Crighton adds.
By using the promotional code PIAGREY25 or quoting this number over the phone, customers will have direct access to the savings up until the 31st of October 2017.
