If you have pets, you want the comfort of knowing they will be cared for and loved if anything should happen to you. We strongly recommend that you please remember your pets when crafting your will. Find someone you can trust to leave them to, and talk to this person so they know your plans. If, however, you do not have anyone to leave your pets to, Austin Pets Alive! now offers a program called Continuing Care to ensure your pet is taken care of. (Learn more about the importance of this program here)
Through the Continuing Care program, anyone who leaves a bequest to APA! can make plans for the lifetime care of their pets should their pets survive them. When an APA! member enrolled in this program passes away, we will guarantee a home for their pet(s). These animals can stay at APA! or at one of our foster homes until a new, permanent home can be found for them.
