Less than a third of dog owners know who will care for their pets in the event of an emergency, according to research published by the National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT).
To help those with no plans in place, the charity has launched a campaign called ‘Tails of the Unexpected’ to help pet owners make care plans for unexpected situations.
Featuring an online guide to take owners through the planning process, the website also includes a set of pet lifestyle and care forms for owners to complete and keep safe with other important documents like vaccination records and insurance details.
Clare Williams, NAWT chief executive officer, said: “Thinking about care for their dog in times of emergency is something many dog owners only consider in passing. Our new campaign aims to help people take the process one step further.”
