Some time ago I took part in a survey about planning for the unexpected in regards to our pets. I found it very interesting so I agreed to be a case study if needed. A few months later I gave an in depth interview on the subject.
Yesterday Lucy from the National Animal Welfare Trust informed me that all results were in and Tails of the Unexpected campaign has been launched. You can read more about it on the NAWT website or their Facebook page.
The numbers are scary – For example did you know that only one in five pet owners have made plans for their animals in the event of an emergency. This really isn’t fair for our beloved pets. They are part of our families and we should really think what will happen to them if we cannot be there for them.
‘Most people do not think in advance about situations like this and once they occur, well then it’s too late.’

If you follow this link you can download some very useful forms which will help you in case of an emergency. If you currently do not have a care guide in place, you can read a step-by-step guide to choosing your pet care here.
Please think about your pets for the future, as one day it might be too late and they will be left on their own.
If you can, share this campaign with your friends and family. Let’s make all pets owners aware of the need of planning for the unexpected.
