Our pets are more than just companion animals – they’re cherished members of the family. But sadly, each year pets are surrendered into the shelter system due to unexpected events that leave them without a caregiver. This can be avoided by planning your will ahead of time and including your pet in the plan.
Willful, Canada’s largest online will writing company, works with pet parents to break down the estate planning process into simple steps. They provide an extra layer of security that will allow you to name a pet guardian and create a pet trust so you can have peace of mind knowing your furry friend will be cared for if something happens to you.
In addition to planning for your pet’s future, you can also leave a legacy gift to Toronto Humane Society. Your gift will support our mission of Improving the Lives of Animals, provide care for animals in need, and help many more pets find their forever homes. Animals like Champ, who experienced the unexpected passing of his pet parent and was left homeless.
Champ bounced from family to family in hopes of finding his new home after his pet parent passed away. With nowhere else to go, Champ started to shut down and was surrendered to our care.
Once in our care we noticed that he had severe allergies. He was constantly itching his irritated skin until it became raw. He also had broken teeth, which we assume came from trying to chew his way out of uncomfortable situations.
His confidence also took a hit. He would lay in the corner of his kennel with his eyes glued to the floor. He did not want to eat. He did not want to engage with humans or other dogs. He felt defeated.
Champ was quickly placed in a foster home while he recovered from his medical treatment. He needed to remember what it felt like to be in a loving home.
After 3 long weeks, and with the help of his foster brother, Champ found the pep in his step. He started to return to the big, lively dog he used to be. Shortly after Champ received the amazing news that he was being adopted into a new, loving home.
