A shocking fact – only 9% of people with wills have made provisions for their pets! That means a lot of pets are at risk if something happens to the people who love them.
This month, HSN has announced a new Forever Plan for Your Pets. The document describing it details 3 simple steps for planning for your pets’ future and outlines various arrangements, both informal and formal, that you can make to protect your animals’ welfare in the event of your illness or death.
Just one of the formal options described is HSN’s Forever Plan. The Forever Plan does not encounter the delay faced with will provisions that have to go through the probate process. It offers immediate care for your pet, lifetime basic medical care, and ongoing communication with future adopters for the rest of your pet’s life. It is particularly well suited to pet owners who may not have family or friends living nearby with whom they can make a special provision for their pet’s care. There is a required minimum future donation from your estate of $50,000.00 to enroll up to three pets.
