Pet Safe Scheme
It was set up after problems arose with people who lived alone being rushed into hospital, leaving no-one to care for their animals. Being rushed into hospital is distressing enough without the added worry of who will look after your animals whilst you are not at home.
Simply print off the Pet Safe form, fill in your details and leave it somewhere prominent e.g. stuck to the fridge door. That way, there'll be an emergency contact readily available and the care of your pets will be passed to the right person.
Make sure the person you've listed as your emergency contact knows they are on the form, and keep the form up to date.
