To Provide Continuing Care
The ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) announced a shared effort with LegalZoom.com to raise awareness of Pet Protection Agreements and encourage pet owners to plan for the future of their pets. LegalZoom will donate 10-15 percent of the purchase price from Pet Protection Agreements purchased through the partnership to the ASPCA to support its national programs.
Pet owners completing a Last Will or Living Trust with LegalZoom are also able to leave charitable gifts to the ASPCA, or designate the ASPCA as an Organization of Last Resort in the Pet Protection Agreement.
