I have recently lost my best friend after 17 years together. Seeing animals in shelters breaks my heart and I would take them all if I could. I would like to adopt a senior dog who is sick and needs love and care but I could not find a Pet Insurance Company to cover pre-existing illnesses. Senior dogs with health problems do not get adopted easily, charities are struggling and animal lovers can't afford the vet bills which are way over the salary in the UK. Saving lives should not be stopped by health policies that won't cover illnesses that any living being might have. I would like to make a petition to all insurance companies including charities who do not cover pre-existing illnesses to change the policy and allow a pet owner to pay insurance and help them with the vet bills as it is imperative to offer the best life to an animal who already suffered in his life and deserves a happy life in his retirement years. Charities only offers help if the owner is on social benefit but life is hard as it is and one should not be put in the situation to ask for social benefits in order to get help with pet health care, social benefits which are not enough. Most of the animal lovers are not rich and live a decent life but their love for animals shouldn't be conditioned by policies that prevent them from adopting a living being who had an unfortunate start in life. Give them a chance to adopt and make fair policies that take care of the animal's needs for his/her remaining life and do not put barriers and limitations to insurance policy because it could save lives and it definitely could reduce the numbers in shelters.
