Care 4 Life Program

Today, the unfortunate reality is many dogs outlive their elderly owners. While estate plans provide for the division of assets and precious family heirlooms, they rarely include plans for the beloved family pet when there is no longer a willing caregiver.

Although some dog owners receive verbal commitments from family members or friends, these well-meaning folks may be unable or unwilling to take on the responsibility when the time comes. If a dog has a chronic illness, it’s even more likely to happen. Even if they do take the dog into their home, what will happen when they can no longer provide care?

Every day, we read newspaper or Craigslist ads in which people offer a loved family pet “free to good home.” Sadly, things are not always as they seem and many of those pets end up in abusive situations or worse.

Without a written plan in place, a beloved pet may be taken to a high-kill shelter or to be euthanized. Or, worst of all, abandoned to fend for itself. To keep your pet safe and well cared for, please contact your attorney to make advanced arrangements. By naming ARI HAD A DREAM, Inc. as your canine companion’s legal guardian, your pet’s future will be secure when you can no longer provide care.

The Program

This ground-breaking, program provides life-long care for dogs whose elderly owners can no longer care for them due to illness, death or a move to a facility that does not allow pets. Now, pet parents can enjoy the company of their best friends, knowing they have a place reserved, in advance, where their canine companions can live out the rest of their lives in a safe, home-like environment. That place is at Ari’s Place, where pets receive all the love and care they deserve.

Each Pet Will:

  • Be under the care of a licensed veterinarian.
  • Receive immunizations, yearly medical exams and other services deemed necessary by our team.
  • Enjoy high quality food, treats and natural supplements to help your pet live a long and happy life.
  • Be provided with a quiet, cage-free area, a comfy bed and blanket.
  • Enjoy social activities appropriate to their age and ability.
  • Be free to roam the grounds daily with doggy door access to indoors.
