marbury: put an emergency pet alert card in your wallet, purse and car. I have one in mine listing my animals and emergency contacts for them. That way you can make sure emergency care workers are aware that you have animals that need care.

Large alert cards on the outside of windows of your home will also help alert firemen or police about your animals in case of fire or natural disaster.

My daughter will take my dogs in the case of our death. Heck, she's threatening to take them when she moves out even if we DON'T die!

Sad to say I have thought about this for a very long time. I had even written a letter with instructions for each of my critters. I do have to update, a lot has changed since the original.
My husband and I decided since we have no human children 100% of what ever we have will be left to a local animal shelter. Since both of us agree after 20 years of several critters in the house we won't be adding any new critters. One day I'd like to say I only have 1 dog & 1 cat (yeah ok maybe 2 dogs 1 cat).
I hope that the shelter will tend to my critters in exchange for all my worldly possesions.
Of course if I turn into the crazy dog lady that has 30 dogs.......

In the unfortunate event of my death or incapacitation, Titan is going to my parents. They will decide at the time if they can keep him due to whatever conditions they are dealing with at the time. If my parents decide they cannot take him, my sister and her husband will 100% keep him.. Jess loves her furry nephew If all else fails, my neighbors and good friends, who watch him when I deploy, are MADLY in love with Titan and said if anything ever happened to me and my family couldn't take him, to know that he always always has a home with them and their 2 danes and 2 peeka poos. Titan loves it there and I have no issues putting that in my will.. if fact I have to update that for an upcoming deployment. Haven't had to have Titan in there since I had him.. will be kinda weird.

It is a hard decision but one we should all think about.. especially if you are in a risky career field like the military or civil services. Glad it seems people have already thought about these, shows how much we all care about the wellbeing of our furry kids

I didn't know they made wallet-sized ones! I'll definitely do that. I already have the plaque in my front window. We had an electrical fire once, but I was home... it started right next to my bed, which is next to the crates. Scary!

I would totally do this but my husband keeps insisting that we leave our money to his human child.

Since thats my biggest fear, we've already discussed it.

If I died today, hubby gets them. if we both died today, our daughter and grand kids will take them...along with our $, houses and belongings.

The rest of our dogs ( over the past 39 years) have all been cremated and are on our bookshelf...my daughter has been instructed to let us all be together in the end.
