Specialist Insurance for Animal Events

If your business involves running animal events, shows or fundraising activities, it is important to have the right level of insurance cover. We can provide a single policy that will cover your event if things were to go pear-shaped.

We know it’s impossible to eliminate all risks, but by making sure you have Public Liability cover you’re ensuring your business is protected for injury or damage to third parties or their property.

Our insurance protection for animal events, shows or fundraising activities covers the organisers should a claim arise following injury to a member of the public, or if their property is damaged as a result of your event’s activities, all within one policy.  

We also offer Employers’ Liability, which protects you should an employee make a claim against you or your event, as well as Cancellation Cover and Equipment Cover to protect all aspects of your day.

What will your Insurance Cover?

There are four broad sections of our policy which covers animal events and shows, giving you protection in variety of ways. Public Liability comes as standard, but each of the remaining three benefits can be removed or altered to suit your event.

Public Liability

Public Liability insurance for dogs or other animal events gives you up to £10 million worth of cover should a member of the public suffer an injury or property damage and hold you and your event responsible.

Employers' Liability

Whether you have paid staff, or volunteers, Employers’ Liability is a legal requirement if you have any staff working for your event. This will protect you if they were to be injured, blame you as the event organiser, and take legal action.

Equipment Cover

From agility equipment to staging and lighting, protecting the equipment you use is likely to be hugely important to you. We can cover you against loss, damage and theft to safeguard the items you need to deliver your event smoothly.

Event Cancellation

If you are hosting an event, we can provide up to £15,000 worth of protection should you be forced to cancel or rearrange your event due to Adverse Weather only. You can get your event cancellation insurance quote below.
