Unfortunately, accidents happen. We don't know from one minute to the next when we may not get to pet our 4-footed friends again. Have we made arrangements for someone to take care of them if we can't? Don't make assumptions that your family loves your pets as much as you do, or that your pets love your family either. You don't want your pets to end up in shelters...or worse! Please read the below document for information, scenarios, etc. Not always an easy read, yet informative and makes you think of what you need to plan for. Many thanks to Jon Green for sharing it with us and with you.
