Pet Emergency card tile

Pets are important members of the family for most Australians, but what would happen to your pet if you were unable to care for it?

Each year government agency NSW Trustee & Guardian hears of pets being left alone when people die without a valid Will, or when people have health issues, which makes it difficult to communicate with others and tell them about the pets they can no longer take care of. The pet emergency card is a simple way of helping to ensure a pet can be looked after when its owner is not able to. It is small enough to be carried in a wallet and contains space to write the pet’s name and who to contact in an emergency.

The card comes attached to a brochure which explains how you can include your pet in your Will, Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship documents. See samples below.
