How Do We Help You?
The unexpected happens and you aren’t able to care for your pet. You don’t have family or a friend who can give them a new home. We do the research and find a trusted animal care organization who can.
Help to get all the important information about your pet thoroughly documented for your pet’s caretakers plus an emergency pet alert system to ensure someone knows your pet is home alone and needs care.
When you want to financially provide for your pet even after you’re gone, we develop a cost of care estimate and provide ideas for funding methods you may not have considered.
We Guide You Through It
Paws to Plan helps people who are committed to doing their best to provide for their pet. Consider their pet an integral part of their family and important enough to plan for their future, even if that may be hard to do. They understand a comprehensive plan can provide peace of mind, reduce uncertainties, and minimize the risk of their pet ending up homeless or worse.
A complete plan includes:
- who will care for your pet
- everything about your pet, their habits, and what keeps them happy and healthy
- how much your pet’s care will cost and how it will be funded
- twice yearly updates to keep up with changes
Maybe you have already completed the first step, congratulations! That’s the most important decision you will have to make and can be one of the most challenging pieces. Paws to Plan can help with any or all of the rest of your pet’s lifetime care plan.

How You Can Get Started
Planning now can make all the difference for your pet’s future. Take the time now to get a plan developed and documented.
An uncertain future may mean your dog lives with your daughter who works long hours and doesn’t have a backyard, because she can’t bear to give her mother’s cherished companion to a stranger. Or your senior kitty is taken to an overcrowded shelter with a high euthanasia rate because no one knew your friend in Arizona wanted to take her. A small amount of your time now can mean a world of difference to your pet later. Click here to get in touch and get started.
