So my love/hate relationship with insurance companies continued this morning when I actually got a response from the company who wants to absorb my policy from Citizens. It was a very nice response.
Homeowners Choice is a company based in Clearwater which does not have breed restrictions. The do not cover liability for dogs of any breed, just like Citizens. This means you would have to pay out of pocket, but you can keep your dog, regardless of what breed it is.
I responded to the email and let them know how much I appreciated this news and I would make sure their name was broadcast far and wide as being pet friendly. This is great news for homeowners who may be threatened to lose their insurance if they don't get rid of their pets.
The company is Homeowners Choice Property and Casualty Insurance Company, Inc. They are based in Clearwater and the toll-free number is 1-888-210-5235. You can check them out online here.
If you love your pet, regardless of breed and don't want to have to give them up, this company may be able to write a policy for you.
