Title: What happens to pets whose owners become hospitalized?
Post by: kitson on February 16, 2012, 02:13:17 AM
Particularly in Pennysilvania, what happens when a pet owner is hospitalized and the patient will not be able to care for them anymore? A nurse at the hospital insisted that the pets would be removed and placed in a good shelter to await adoption, but I wanted to know what would happen in the meantime. Do people go out and feed the animals and make sure they're alright?

I would assume that the care of the animals would be up to the family, friends and/or neighbors of the hospitalized person.

I think these matters should be pre arranged. It could be part of a will or just between family or friends.
