The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) regularly takes in animals whose owners have passed away or become incapacitated. Without specific direction about their care, these animals often have to wait at the shelter in limbo while we search for and negotiate with the next of kin. An unfamiliar environment and change of routine can cause an animal an extraordinary amount of stress--certainly not the scenario a loving pet owner would wish for their pet.
Come learn more about how to prepare a plan for your pets and about the AWLA's exciting new program for Alexandria residents. A Plan for Pets Workshop will be presented on April 8 at 10 a.m. at the Vola Lawson Shelter by Rachel Baer, Esq, AWLA Board Member and Of Counsel at Needham Mitnick & Pollack PLC. Ms. Baer's law practice focuses on estate planning and elder law. Megan Webb, MBA, Executive Director, Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, will be co-presenting.
Manageable steps in the process of planning for pets will be outlined, with discussion on how pets will be cared for if something happens to their owner. AWLA's new program to help give Alexandria pets a smooth transition to a new family if their owners have no available family will be described. You will leave the workshop with useful information and written materials on resources for taking the next steps to ensure there is a plan for your pets. Register now for this FREE 1-hour workshop.
