Have future plans been made for your four-legged family members? Enroll in the Calaveras Humane Society’s Pet Guardian Program and have peace of mind that your beloved pets will be cared for when the need arises. When a guardian passes away, animals enrolled in the Pet Guardian Program will be taken into the Calaveras Humane Society’s shelter while we work to place them in just the right home. The program is available for dogs and cats. Maximum three pets per household, please.
Specify in your will or trust documents that your pet is to be entrusted to the Calaveras Humane Society at the time of your death
The text might read: “At the time of my death, I give my pet(s) to the Calaveras Humane Society’s Pet Guardian Program for placement in a loving home.”
You can designate the Calaveras Humane Society as your first choice guardian or as a contingent guardian, if you have friends or family that you hope will adopt your pets and wish to have us as a back-up option.
