Steps to Create a Plan for your Pet

Step 1:

Carry a pet alert card in your wallet.  This card will alert authorities that you have a pet at home and list two emergency contacts for them to notify if something happens to you.

You can download and print Pet Alert Cards courtesy of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League or stop by our shelter at 3100/3200 N. Military Trail in West Palm Beach and we would be happy to provide you with wallet cards for your family’s use.

Step 2:

Create A Pet Profile for each pet in your care.

A pet profile is a document detailing information about your pet that will be essential for potential guardians or caregivers in your absence.  This information is vital to helping your pet find a new home faster, and one that is as similar to yours as possible.  The profile includes:

  1. Habits
  2. Food preferences
  3. Medical conditions and medications
  4. Veterinary information and records
  5. Behavior around other pets/people/children

This profile should be kept in a safe place with your other important papers and copies should be given to everyone in your pet’s circle of care. 

You can download and print a Pet Profile courtesy of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League or stop by our shelter at 3100/3200 N. Military Trail in West Palm Beach and we would be happy to provide you with a sample profile sheet.

Step 3:

Decide on an Informal or Formal Arrangement for your pet’s future care

There are many options available to you when planning for the future care of your pet.  Please review the information about informal vs. formal arrangements to decide which works best for you and your pet.  Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League does offer a Peace of Mind Program for families who wish to establish a formal program with the League as your pet’s guardian and beneficiary.  Learn more about the Peace of Mind Program.
