First, decide who will watch your pets when you’re gone. Consider a family member; discuss the prospect with them to gauge their interest, as it’s obviously a serious commitment. Alternatively you could entrust your pet to an animal charity that works with estates.

The other two steps are to set aside money and put all paperwork together. These seem straightforward and are good recommendations for any kind of emergency.

Our pets depend on us for care. Considering their future after we’re gone is a responsible, loving decision.
