No matter what age or how healthy you are, make sure you have preparations made for your pet if you become unable to care for him.
This information should be incorporated into your will. At the very least, a letter should be kept with your important papers. Make sure the caretaker knows they are responsible for your pet and that they should be contacted if something should happen.
For a donation, PAWS Chicago’s Guardian Angel program will make sure your pet is cared for—including finding another loving home—if something should happen to you.
