Winky here! Recently my mom was looking through the albums on Facebook of pets in need of adoption/foster/rescue and she noticed that there were quite a few that had ended up in shelters/pounds because their owner had passed away or was in the hospital and the family didn’t know what else to do.
So as a beloved pet, I would like to ask you all to think through who would take care of your pets if something were to happen to you, and then make sure you discuss it with your family and friends. And if you have a will, add the instructions into your will!
I also found some nifty cards online that you can print out, fill out and put in your wallet next to your driver’s license that will give instructions as to who should be contacted in the event of an emergency. I am including a few links that offer such cards- and all are free!!
So if you love your pets like I know you do, please take just a couple minutes to make a card, and be sure to bring up the topic with family and friends! Your pets will thank you!!!
