Pet cards

This could be useful for those who have older relatives or friends. Often the fact of that person owning a pet is overlooked in a crisis.

If you know someone who lives alone and has a pet the latest complimentary 'Pet Card' from Co-operative Funeral Services may be of interest.

Pet Cards are a means of raising awareness of pets that may be home alone in the case of something happening to the owner.

With the UK pet population reaching around 57 million, the wallet sized card is used to inform of who should be contacted if the owner were to become ill or injured and ensures any four legged, furry or feathered friends are looked after.

The complimentary cards will be distributed in local communities as the nation is urged to take the simple precautionary measure to ensure their domestic companions are never left alone.

Thank you Bananas5, what a great idea! I'm sure I've heard of another UK charity offering something similar, but can't for the life of me remember who it is. Also, The Cinnamon Trust helps people who are elderly, terminally ill to care for their pets: cinnamon.org.uk/home.php

Best wishes

Excellent idea and thank you for this information. I do not have a pet anymore, but I will certainly look out for the cards of people who have one and it needs help.
