My Pet Outliving Me

What can happen in the event of my pet outliving me?

  • Any details should be kept with your other important papers and your solicitor and/or next of kin should be informed of your wishes.
  • Ensure any medical information is noted on your pets’ details.
  • If you adopted from us, your adoption agreement agrees for Animal Concern Cumbria to be contacted in the first instance. 
  • If you did not adopt from us, you can nominate us as your pets preferred nominated Charity. 
  • Your pet will come into our care and be looked after and loved by our dedicated team of animal carers either on site or with a carefully screened foster carer in their own home.
  • We will give your pet/s everything they need from a warm bed, food, enrichment and plenty of cuddles.  During this time your pet’s individual needs will be assessed and
    the team will start looking for a loving furever home.
  • All pets who come into our care will go through our regular process which includes assessing their health and behaviour to ensure we understand the kind of home environment suitable for their needs.  The information you leave about your pets is so helpful, no one knows your pets better than you.

Free Wills

Free Wills

Some choose to leave a gift in their Will, to help give your pet and other animals in need a chance at finding a purrfectly or pawsome furever after.  Leaving a gift of any size in a Will is very much appreciated, these gifts along with donations help us to continue helping animals in need.  There is no obligation to do so.
