AXA, one of the largest insurers, is building up a wealth of national clients, which it serves from its offices across the UK .

"We are delighted to have won the RSPCA Pet Insurance account. This is great news for the Corporate Partnership team and is a reflection of the hard work and commitment demonstrated by all those that have been involved," says Anthony Middle, Director of Corporate Partnerships, AXA. "We look forward to working with the RSPCA to enhance the value of their brand, and deliver an outstanding service to pet owners.

"Taking out insurance is an integral part of being a responsible pet owner and the RSPCA would like it to become a routine part of pet care. Too often minor medical problems can escalate because people are worried about taking their animal to the vet in case they cannot afford the treatment - their animals suffer unnecessarily as a result," says Steve Cheetham, RSPCA Chief Veterinary Officer.

"We are delighted to be launching a new RSPCA policy with AXA that is both affordable and effective for pet owners. And not only does RSPCA Pet Insurance help protect owners against the cost of unexpected bills, 20% of the premium goes direct to helping the RSPCA combat cruelty and promote kindness to animals."

In addition to providing product support for the RSPCA, AXA also provides the product and service support for a number of other leading brands.
