What does the Mad Paws Insurance cover?
At Mad Paws, the safety of our pet owners, pet sitters and pets is of the utmost importance. We want our pet sitters to be able to provide a fun, and safe service, but not have to foot the bill for an insurance premium to helping out their local community members! This is why we, at Mad Paws, have organised and arranged a Public Liability insurance policy which provides Insurance for all pet sitting services booked in through the Mad Paws website.
The insurance policy applies for all services booked through MadPaws.com.au. This includes:
Mad Paws offers free Public Liability insurance (not to be confused with the usual illness cover that most pet owners already have for their pets). Public liability covers any damage or injury to a third party or their property which is due to negligence of the pet sitter whilst the pet is under the pet sitter’s care. Please note that there is a $350 deductible for any Insurance case, and this is payable by the pet sitter. For full details on our Insurance cover, click here.
