A free seminar called “Estate and Emergency Planning For Your Pets” will be held at Fossil Wine Bar in Atascadero on Wednesday, February 19.
Teresa Rhyne of the Teresa Rhyne Law Group will walk attendees through the basics of how best to prepare for the possibility of something happening that may prevent you from taking care of your pets.
The hour-long presentation will focus on short-term strategies such as creating a Written Action Plan for your pets, identifying potential caregivers for emergencies, and alerting authorities to your wishes for your pets in case you are incapacitated away from home. It will also cover long-term strategies such as setting up Powers of Attorney and Health Care Directives that provide for your pets, establishing a Pet Trust for their (and their caregiver’s) long-term care, and the multiple ways you can support animal charities after you are gone.
The seminar is free to the public, but seating is limited. Wine, beer, mead, sake, and small snacks will be available for purchase at Fossil Wine Bar.
