Question by Meier Angel: What happens to pets whose owners become hospitalized?
Particularly in Pennysilvania, what happens when a pet owner is hospitalized and the patient will not be able to care for them anymore? A nurse at the hospital insisted that the pets would be removed and placed in a good shelter to await adoption, but I wanted to know what would happen in the meantime. Do people go out and feed the animals and make sure they’re alright?
Thanks for reading!

It’s up to the owner to arrange for their pets to be looked after – friends, boarding kennel, family. Hospitals don’t and can’t get involved.
