Former Soaring Paws CEO Albert Adams has pleaded guilty to 10 felony charges brought by the Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office for pet insurance fraud.
This follows an investigation that found Adams had signed up for a pet insurance policy and sought nearly $13,000 in false reimbursements for pets’ medical expenses.
He will serve 15 months in prison and 10 years probation. He will also need to repay the fraudulently obtained money.
In 2018, Hillsborough County prosecutors convicted Adams for defrauding donors to Soaring Paws, using donations intended to fly abused animals to new homes for his own personal expenses.
