Knowing that pets usually have shorter lifespans than humans, you may have planned for your animal friend's passing.

But what if you are the one who becomes ill or incapacitated, or who dies first?

As a responsible pet owner, you provide your pet with food and water, shelter, veterinary care, and love. To ensure that your beloved pet will continue to receive this if something unexpected were to happen to you, it's critical to plan ahead.

Learn what steps you can take to plan and provide for your pet's future without you with this printable PDF: Providing For Your Pet's Future Without You »
