Animals in crisis: how you can help

A new Petfinder.com survey found that 84 percent of a total of 700 shelters and rescue groups that responded from across the country are experiencing an increase in pets being surrendered as a result of job loss and foreclosures linked to the economic downturn.

How can you protect your pet from financial uncertainty?

  • Budget for vet care in advance: Setting aside a few dollars every month can help ensure that you have enough cash to cover basic medical costs.
  • Invest in preventative medicine: Make sure your pet's vaccines are up to date and don't skimp on their annual checkups.
  • Consider subscribing to a pet health insurance plan: A small monthly contribution can help you sidestep unexpected big bills in the future.
