Why have a plan?
We begin each year with hope and usually with an unruly amount of resolutions. And that's not a bad thing. Resolving to take action helps us grow and become better people.
But some resolutions aren't fun, daring or enticing. Some resolutions are a little drab, tedious and confusing. Thinking about death and dying is the epitome of not fun - especially at the start of a new year. But it's really a fantastic time to think about it and to get all your ducks right in a row!
Having a written plan for your pets in case you pass away is essential for providing them with the best care and quality of life. Even if you have family or friends who are willing to take your pet in, a written plan ensures that your pet’s needs are met and they’re taken care of in the way you would have wanted. Here’s why you should have a written plan for your pet.
First, it’s important to understand that if no one is immediately available to care for your pet, they will be taken to animal control. Even if you have family or friends who are willing to take them in, they might not be able to arrange care right away. Having a written plan will help make sure they will be cared for without delay. Having a written plan that can be implemented by people outside family will help reduce stress on loved ones as well as the pets.
Second, a written plan for your pet will help ensure that all their needs are met in the event of your death. It’s important to think about whether your pet needs daily walks, special food, or regular vet visits, and make sure that all of these needs are addressed in your plan. It’s also necessary to consider the financial costs of caring for your pet, so be sure to include some funds to ensure that your pet’s future is secure.
Finally, a written plan for your pet is a wonderful way to honor your relationship with your pet. You've loved and cared your furry kid for years - do you really want them to be orphaned if something happens to you? Having a plan in place will provide you with peace of mind, knowing that they will be taken care of even if something were to happen to you.
In the end, having a written plan for your pet is essential for providing them with the best care and quality of life for their entire lives. Including AnimalCity in that plan will give you comfort, and will make a tragic time easier for your family & less stressful for your pet.
