The Paw & Feather Pl​an Inc.

The Cat Plan, Bird Plan, Dog Plan and Horse Plan:

These four plans refer to pets bequeathed to The Paw and Feather Plan, or entrusted to us via a legal pet trust.

You, your trusted estate planning attorney and/or team of advisers are the primary creators of your pet's plan.  

The 3 plans below offer a very concise overview of what your plan could look like with The PAFP as your pet's designated caregiver. 

Other services we offer are listed below these 3 primary plans.

Horse Note: We are in the process of securing an exceptionally competent network of horse owners to take over your horse's care at a moment's notice. Since I, Jessica Pita, do not have much experience with horses, I'm working on creating a network of safe, trustworthy, knowledgeable horse owners and handlers to foster or adopt your horse should the need arise. -Thus far I have 3 confirmed horse owners on board in 2 different states. The website will be updated soon accordingly. 



The Cat Plan

With The Cat Plan I will go to your home to get your cat within 24 hours' notice (of death or emergency).


Your cat will be integrated into his or her foster home, where he or she will stay until adopted into a permanent, vetted, loving home.


There's a chance your cat's foster parent will choose to adopt your cat him/herself.


If you have multiple cats and prefer they remain in your home, we can arrange for that.




The Bird Plan

With the bird plan I will go to your home to get or stay with your bird within 24 hours' notice (of the death or emergency).


Your bird will be integrated into his or her foster home, where he or she will stay until adopted into a permanent, vetted, loving home.


There's a strict screening and education process for bird adopters in particular since most people have no idea what bird ownership entails. 


There's also a chance your bird's foster parent will choose to adopt your bird him/herself.


If you have multiple birds and prefer they remain in your home, that can be arranged.


*With these 'plans' there's a variable cost depending on age of pet(s), location, and your long term vision for your pet(s). 


The Dog Plan

With the dog plan I will go to your home to get your dog within 24 hours' notice (of the death or emergency).


Your dog will be integrated into his or her foster home, where he or she will stay until adopted into a permanent, vetted, loving home.


There's a chance your dog's foster parent will choose to adopt your dog him or herself.


If you're a dog owner using the PAFP you're in luck, as I have the most experience fostering dogs over the past 14 years (we foster an average of 1 dog/month and average length of stay is 2 weeks). 




The Horse Plan

With the horse plan, things will go quite differently than with the other plans, as horses are quite different animals! 


Even the transporting of a horse can be a big undertaking.  


So for this, I am so grateful to have the help of at least 4 amazing horsewomen for the needs of our horse owners.  


2 are in Ky. with large properties and horse farms, and the other 2 are in Florida with large properties and horse farms. 


Should we want your horses to stay on your property with a caregiver living there, that can be arranged as well. 


The Last Straw Plan

This plan offers owners assistance to keep their pets via: counseling services, basic training, tips and resource connections. 

This service is typically FREE since these folks aren't in a position to pay for services.

Pet Re-Homing Service

Re-homing a pet should be reserved as a last option since it's a traumatic adjustment for the pet and owner. 

That being said, sometimes a pet is better off with a new owner.

Some people aren't capable, mentally, emotionally and/or physically, of caring for a pet.

In these instances The Paw and Feather Plan can help responsibly re-home a pet.

 Cost is dependent on many variable issues but is oftentimes free.

Temporary Boarding

The Paw and Feather Plan family also boards pets for owners going through major life transitions (or just on vacation!). 

We have foster parents and pet boarding families in several states throughout the United States, and even in Brazil and Colombia. 

Typically the cost for boarding a pet that will eventually be re-united with its family is $25-$40/night.
