Steps to Safeguard Your Pet’s Well-being

Join us for a heartwarming and crucial conversation with Ingrid Harrison, a passionate advocate for animal welfare, as we delve into the world of pet trusts. Ingrid’s touching journey, originating from her childhood on a dairy farm, offers a unique perspective on the profound emotional bonds between humans and their pets. Together, we explore the importance of setting up pet trusts, especially for animals with long lifespans such as birds, horses, and reptiles, ensuring they are cared for if their owners become incapacitated or pass away.

Learn why it’s important to have emergency contacts and care plans readily accessible, particularly for those who live alone.
