Have you ever asked yourself ‘who will care for my much-loved pet should I pass on or move into residential care?’
Providing for your pet’s future without you…
Thankfully the USPCA Pet Pledge scheme can help take that worry away.
Pet Pledge gives owners peace of mind knowing that, should the worst happen, the USPCA will be on hand to care for your pet and will find them a loving home with someone special.
Pet Pledge will not only give you reassurance but will also take away a concern for friends and family during what is already a distressing time.
Your companion animal has given you their unconditional love in exchange for your promise of compassion and care – you can continue to keep this pledge after you’re gone from its life by registering your pets with Pet Pledge.
Enrolling in Pet Pledge is simple; your solicitor can update your Will by inserting a suggested clause which is provided by the USPCA.
This simple change will ensure your Executors are fully aware of your wish to pass the legal responsibility of caring for your companion animal to the USPCA.
You should also:
- Register with the USPCA for Pet Pledge by completing their simple application form
- Advise family, friends and executor of your Will where your pet pledge documentation is kept
Should anything happen to you, your pet will be taken to the USPCA Animal Hospital where the veterinary team will give it a health assessment as the first step in a care plan for its stay in our rehoming facility.
Completing the application is very important as it provides much of the information the dedicated team at the USPCA need including your pets likes and dislikes.
Before they re-home any pet a meeting is set up with the adopter and a home check carried out with a follow-up visit to ensure a successful transition.
Pet Pledge is a free scheme but you might like to consider leaving the USPCA a gift in your Will to help make sure the Pet Pledge service is always available for anyone who needs it.
