Every year thousands of pets are orphaned in the United States. Unfortunately, our own beloved pets may be included in this tragic statistic if we fail to provide for them in the event that we pass away or become incapacitated. It is important to remember that, when we choose to bring a pet into our family, we have made the choice to care for the pet for the rest of its lifetime – not just for the rest of our own lifetime!
When a pet owner passes away or becomes incapable of caring for pets, often there is no one else who is willing or able to care for these pets, resulting in a double tragedy – the loss or incapacity of the pet owner and the creation of orphaned pets!
If a pet owner bequeaths a pet and sufficient funds to Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center, the Center will accept the pet upon the pet owner’s death. The pet will be placed in the Center’s Adoption Program with the committed goal of finding the pet a new home, similar to the loving one your provided, as quickly as possible. The Center will provide a temporary home for the pet for as long as is necessary until the pet is adopted.
Your planned gift to Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center gives you the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping ensure the future of the Center and its many programs that help animals and people in need for generations to come.
