Companion animals add so much to our lives and give us joy, loyalty, and unconditional love. When planning for the disbursement of estates, it is vital to allow for the care and protection of your pet(s). Provisions for your pet(s) can be included in your will or living trust, just like you would if you were appointing a guardian to take care of your children.
Because we really care about you and your pets, we have established the Perpetual Pet Care Program – to ensure that pet owners who provide for their pets in estate planning will absolutely be guaranteed a loving, warm, and safe home for their dog(s) and /or cat(s). We select new homes – through your criteria – and monitor your pet(s) throughout their entire lifetime.
Only you can make the proper decisions concerning your pet’s needs. Planning is important – you don’t want to put your pet at risk in the future. Sadly, it would be difficult enough for your pet to lose you, and you certainly don’t want your pet to lose the opportunity to live out its natural life in a loving and caring home.
It is important that you designate a caretaker in a Trust or Will and request that the allocated funds be used for food, shelter, and veterinary care as needed.
How to enroll
The first step is to make a provision for a gift to MSRPAC in your estate plan. The suggested amount is $2,500 per animal. Then, let us know so that we can add you as a member of the 1897 Society.
- You’ll need to fill out the Perpetual Pet Profile form to officially enroll your pets in the program.
- Provide us with a photo and information about each pet you’re enrolling for identification.
- Give us any detailed care instructions that you would like a future guardian to know about your pet.
