Barks and Blooms wants to help save your pet with one question: If anything happens to you, what would happen to your pet? The hard fact is that 4 million pets are surrendered to shelters because their owners have either passed away or become seriously ill and can no longer care for them. Pets that have been accustomed to a loving and comfortable home do not adjust well to the lonely, cold confinement of a shelter.
They refuse to eat
The become depressed, showing signs of being un-adoptable
They are the first to be euthanized.
We discovered a wonderful nonprofit called 2nd Chance for Pets that can end this very preventable problem.
These 3 easy steps will save your pets life:
Step 1–IDENTIFY A CAREGIVER: Someone who you know will care for your pets with the same love and passion that you have.
Step 2–PREPARE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS: Describe how you want your pets to be cared for. Document your instructions and let others know where these instructions are located.
Step 3–SET UP A FUND: You currently pay for food, supplies, medical care. Consider setting aside funds to cover temporary care for your pets. Their needs don’t stop just because you aren’t there.
