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. 

When in doubt, do a water change.
Whoa. Where did I put all my stuff?

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