I was just wondering if most everyone has plans for their dogs to be taken care of just in case something bad happened to us, their human caregivers. I was also wondering if there is any way to legalise those plans so we can make sure that our canine family will be taken care of and not just dumped at the pound etc. I have papers drawn up for my kids, which my x husband and I both signed, which says who will raise our kids if something were to happen to both of us. Is there something like that for pets? What about plans for someone to take care of our animals in the event that you end up in the hospital short term?
