The Haven offers free estate planning seminar Nov. 6
FAIRHOPE, Ala. -- In recent years, a cryptic commercial asked, “What would happen to your family if you weren’t here tomorrow?” The Haven wants you to think about what would happen to your furry, feathered or other less-traditional family members.
“We spend as much or more time with our pets as with our two-legged family members. Their care, feeding and happiness are often more of a priority than that of two-legged family members, though some of us might hesitate to admit that,” said Michael Graham, executive director of The Haven.
“We’re more attuned to their needs simply because they’re not able to help themselves,” he said, “and we have to ask ourselves what would happen to those furry family members if they outlive us.”
The Haven wants to help ensure a safe and secure future for pets through a free workshop on estate planning to care for them after you’re gone, noon to 1 p.m., Friday, November 6 at The Baldwin House Assisted Living located at 10171 Papa George Street in Daphne. Speaking on the topic will be national speaker and local attorney Kyla Kelim with Aging in Alabama.
The seminar is free, and a complimentary lunch is provided by Mar y Ann ’s De li, but seating is limited. Reserve your seat before November 6 by calling 251-929-2494.
“You should plan now to ensure that they continue receiving the same level of care if they outlive you. And, you can be almost guaranteed they won’t contest the will or be upset if they don’t get grandma’s silver,” he added.
