We're talking about my pet here and I don't even know you. How can I trust you?
I've been working in animal rescue, beginning as a volunteer, since 2006. That's 17 years of experience working with pets. -This is one of my life's callings.
Yes. The Paw and Feather Plans deals well with uncertainty.
As a veteran pet foster caregiver and pet sitter, I'm comfortable having a pet in our home for a set time, then giving it back to the owner- or finding it a permanent home if need be.
Although this would be treated like a pet sitting service (different from the 'plans' we offer), provided the owner would one day take the pet back. -Contingent on availability at any given time.
I personally will show up when needed and take your pet with me to my home (unless we have other arrangements set up in advance for your pet).
I personally will foster and place your pet in a loving, vetted home.
If you live out of state from me at the time of your death or illness that's o.k. too! I love to travel!
Let's talk :)
Yes. Trusts can be a great option for those that want to create a more detailed plan for their pets, and have more longtime oversight in place. Unlike wills, trusts can go into effect while you're still living (if you were to fall very ill or disabled). An estate planning attorney would need to help you establish a pet trust. -I do know some excellent attorneys that work in this field.
Good point! This is a family business. My 9 year old son is already a great dog, cat and bird handler. He loves helping out with all our foster and pet sitting guests. -He will inherit this business. You can meet him if you like!
I also have foster parent and boarding team members in several states across the country that are younger than me!
This service, this business, is meant to last for generations to come, for whoever needs it.
