keeping your pet safe

Animal Care Card

Animal Care Card

Like any responsible pet owner you probably worry about what will happen to your beloved pet if you were to pass away suddenly.

Thankfully Gables offers a free service that will take in, care for and rehome pets if their owners pass away.

Most people leave instructions in their Wills for their finances, but few leave instructions on what they want to happen to their pets. We appreciate that a lot of pet owners have already arranged for a family member or friend to take care of their pets, but we have seen a lot of cases where the person who agreed to take on their pet was no longer able to do so as their circumstances had changed. This left family members and friends distressed and unsure what to do with the person’s pet/s at such a difficult time.

This free service can give pet owners peace of mind and their pets a secure and happy future, even if it is just a backup plan.

When your dog or cat is brought into Gables they will receive a full veterinary assessment. We will make sure any medical treatment needed is given and then find them a new loving home.
