Disasters can strike in any form, not just mother natures wrath but bad things can happen in our personal lives. To an animal it could be the loss of their human.
Who will look after your animals if something should happen to you? Have you made arrangements for them? No one wants to think about their own mortality but it is reality. Please don’t let you animals end up in a shelter or abandoned should you not be able to care for them. Don’t assume that family will take them in and care for them.
Have a pet. Have a plan.
