Sometimes people are or become unable to care for their pet either temporarily or permanently because of an illness, a move into a home that doesn’t allow pets or even the owner’s death.
When you adopt, it’s important to think about what will happen to your pet if something happens to you. If you do not make arrangements beforehand, you have no control over what happens. Your pet could end up in a rescue and be adopted, or it could end up in an animal control facility where homeless pets are routinely euthanized. While you can hope for the best, “hope” is not a plan. You should plan for the worst.
First, determine how your pet will be cared for if you become unable to do so for an extended time period, such as an illness or hospitalization. Although a boarding kennel can care for your pet, this can be expensive. Ideally, it is beneficial for a close friend or relative to care for your pet during this time; however, this is often not an option.
Second, figure out what will happen to your pet if you become permanently unable to care for them. For example, in the event that you enter a long-term care facility, you will likely be unable to bring your pet with you.
If you are concerned about what will happen to your pet if you are unable to care for it, we have a temporary and long-term care solution.
If you enroll in our Legacy Program, we will care for your pet should you become unable to provide the proper pet care. When you enroll in our Legacy Program, we will make sure that your pet is EITHER taken in, prepared for adoption, and then placed in a loving home, OR that the pet is sanctuaried at Godbey Creek for his or her remaining years. We maintain the highest standards for pet adoptions, providing peace of mind that your pet will be properly cared for, regardless of what happens to you.
