Plan for pets’ care after you’re gone

Most pet owners give love and security to their dogs and cats, but may neglect to make arrangements for their care if the owner should die or become unable to care for them.

Because of this, when volunteering at the Nevada County Animal Shelter, I see cats and dogs, often quite old, so not likely to be adopted.

Planning ahead when you are healthy for their care in the future will prevent your pets from ending up lonely and frightened in an animal shelter.
