Mission Statement

When the unexpected happens to pet owners, we rehome the pet. The Pet Endowment Trust (PET) mission is to help pet owners when should the unexpected happens. We believe pet planning stops pets from being abandoned and left homeless. It’s a proactive action that any animal welfare group can support. Like spay and neuter programs, pet estate planning could significantly lower the chance of pets that owners once cared for, becoming homeless or unwanted. The PET has several goals; promoting the mission of pet planning, helping owners with planning needs, help other animal associations with receiving planned giving donations and keeping veterinarian offices from becoming dumping grounds of once loved pets.


Most pet owners do not make arrangements if something unexpected should happen. It’s this problem the PET is targeting. Linda Moon and myself as co-founders of the PET have spent the last year validating a need, developing an online presence and getting clarity on where our organization can make the biggest impact and difference. We and our board of directors understand what a huge undertaking this is.

In the early stages of our research and outreach we targeted animal public events. We were welcomed by pet owners and advocates alike but were frustrated that our impact was so small. By sharing what we were doing many of the veterinarian groups we meet, shared their stories of family pet abandonment.

We gained positive feedback that what we’re doing was defiantly needed. Further investigation lead us to Texas A&M University’s Stevenson Center. One of the top animal sanctuaries in the nation. We meet with the directors of the Stevenson Center who are veterinarians themselves. They echoed what we had already heard. Pets being brought in by surviving family members to be put down or just to drop off and let the veterinarian staff deal with trying to find rehoming. They expressed hope that we would continue promoting our message and offered assistance if possible.
