Many times responsible pet owners mistakenly believe a family member or friend will volunteer to care for their pet until death or illness.This expectation often may not happen and the pet’s future and existence is placed in doubt.

A Pet Life Care Plan could provide reassurance that your pet will be loved and cared for in the manner they are used to experiencing by a person you select to provide that care.

What is a pet life care plan?

A Pet Life Care Plan can establish legal guidelines to help provide security for your pet upon death or disability. 

The Pet Life Care Plan Includes:

  1. Legal Authorization to establish a specific source of funds for the care of your pet. It is enforceable under Florida Law.
  2. Selection of a designated person to care for your pet if you are disabled due to illness or accident.
  3. Explaining specific health and behavioral information about your pet to assist the caregiver you have chosen in carrying out your directions.
