“What if I get the coronavirus, who does take care my pet ?” Anicom Holdings, Inc. will take care of your pet free of charge if the owner has to live in a quarantine facility or during a hospitalization.
This “#StayAnicom” project was started to help pet owners ease their fears a bit. This company is the parent company of Anicom Insurance, which provides pet insurance in Japan.
You can apply for this project without their insurance. You can rest assured that your pet will be taken care of by Anicom’s volunteers, mainly veterinarians.
Why this project?
With the spread of new coronavirus infections, the question among pet owners is “If I get infected, what should I do with my pet?” There is a widespread anxiety about this. There is probably no other facility that can take care of a infected person’s pet for a long time.
The project will start in the Tokyo area, but if you wish, they will consider other areas as well. They says They plans to expand the scale depending on the number of owners, the area and the circumstances.
