Pets End of Life Planning & Organization
Will your pets be taken care of when you’re gone?
There is only one law in the universe that never changes– that all things change, and that all things are impermanent.”
― Sogyal Rinpoche, The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying
If you were to die suddenly, who would take care of your furry friends? Do friends and family know the needs of each of your furry family? Once you have passed who will care for your fur babies? Your end of life planning should include who will be contacted immediately to care for your pets as well as long-term care. In addition, you may choose to set up a trust for your pets or leave money in your will for their care. There are also pet rescues that you can make arrangements to care for your fur babies.
Julie Coraccio and her husband have five cats and it is important to make sure that they will be cared for if anything would happen to either of them. Julie has seen countless posts about animals that were abandoned because family members did not want them and their owner had not made plans for them. Don’t let your pets suffer because you didn’t plan ahead.
Let Julie Coraccio support you in walking through the process of organizing your end of life planning and give you and your family peace of mind. Contact Julie: Julie@reawakenyourbrilliance.com or 919.559.3925.
TIP: Post removable “in case of emergency,” notices on doors or windows specifying how many and what types of pets are in the home. These notices will alert emergency response personnel during a fire or other home emergency
Consider adding a 50% cushion of what you are planning to leave for care to cover late-life medical expenditures for your pets.
