Pet Care After Owner Passes

I want to address a tough subject.

In the last month I have had two elderly clients pass away, one had a plan for their pet, the other did not. Both of the dogs are okay, with the help of our caring pet community they were able to find loving homes. I get attached to my animals, but also to their owners. This is part of my job, what I love doing. The loss hurts, but the best I can do is make sure their beloved pets are cared for after the end comes.

Do you have a plan?

If you do not have family who can adopt your pets, it is important you have something in writing with instructions on what to do with them. I work with a few reputable rescues that can help. I will always do my best with the resources I have available to me, to make sure my four-legged friends find good, loving, responsible homes.

I know this isn’t something any of us want to talk about, but it is an important conversation that needs to be had. If you have any questions or would like to talk further about this, I am available to guide you in the right direction.

I am so grateful these two particular dogs are in loving homes and the transition should be pretty easy for them, but this is not always the case. I will be writing my instructions for each of my four-legged family members as a result of the last couple weeks.
