This insurance policy is suitable for those who use or supply animals any stage show or production, television shows, advertising campaigns, films, photo shoots and public appearances. It is not suitable should you wish to supply animals Scheduled under the Dangerous Wild Animal Act (DWAA) or for those looking to insure the animal against injury, loss or death.

While you’re busy adjusting aperture, casting and filming, we’ll focus on your insurance. 

Working with animal stars of the big screen and stage can be very rewarding but it can also come with unforeseen risks. That’s why you need animal business insurance from a broker who loves and understands animals as much as you do.

Making animals the star of the show is what you do best. Insuring your business is what we do best. 

Cliverton has over 50 years’ experience providing insurance for specialist animal businesses. If you supply animals for stage, film, TV, photography or public appearances, Cliverton can arrange cover. Whether it be for legal liability for loss and damage to third party property or personal injury.

Although we can’t name names, we can show-off a little by telling you that we already insure some famous animals. From TV adverts, much loved films and TV dramas for our Animal Agency customers.

While you have animals galore on set, we have animals galore at home – and dogs in the office so we understand the madness and mayhem! As a team of animal lovers, we are committed to finding the right cover for your animal business while you put Champ and Troy in the limelight!
