I recently had a client approach me on a matter of grave importance. He was putting together his Will and wanted to make certain his dog would be cared for should anything happen to him. He had set up a Pet Trust to provide funds for his dog's ongoing care but needed to appoint a caretaker to make sure his wishes for the dog were carried out. He asked me if I would perform that function. I was touched and honored that he has put that kind of trust and confidence in me and I said yes.
I pray that my client will live for many more years and be able to care for his companion but I am inspired by his commitment to fulfill his obligation to his dog even after his own death.
500,000 companion animals are placed in shelters in this country each year when their pet parents die or become too ill to care for them. A great percentage of them are euthanized due to lack of space and various other reasons.Whether you are 18 years old or 81, you have no guarantees that you will be around for the life of your pets. Part of your responsibility as a pet parent is making sure your pets are provided for if you are no longer able to care for them. There are several options available.
