The movie, 'Marley & Me', lets audiences share an entire life of ups and downs with 'the world's worst dog'. When Marley dies, movie fans inevitably reflect on their own mortality.
Over 1m pet owners die each year. Within days, shockingly their pets are often also dead - unnecessarily. Every year, over 3m cats and dogs are euthanized and millions more become shelter-dwellers - because most owners make no provision in writing for their pets.
"In a single sheet of paper, every owner can save their pet's life", says Jon Sayers, President of ItsMyLife.com. "Using the 'Pets Letter of Wishes', owners can protect their pet in five minutes. Each Letter signed, witnessed and given to a next of kin ensures a safe and loving future for a dear friend." A free 'Pets Letter of Wishes' for any number of pets is available at http://www.ItsMyLife.com until February 14, 2009 to anyone using the code MARLEY.
Pets must be protected in writing. Verbal arrangements can easily be forgotten. The 'Pets Letter of Wishes' sets out in plain English for courts and/or executors exactly who will have the pet - in case the owner dies or becomes unable to provide the pet with a proper home.
