Tender Loving Care for Pets Program (TLC)
The Tender Loving Care (TLC) for Pets Program at the Center for Companion Animal Health, UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine provides permanent, loving homes for companion animals predeceased by their owners.

A gift to the School of Veterinary Medicine in your estate plan plus an enrollment fee is all it takes to feel assured that your pets will be adopted into caring homes and provided with lifetime veterinary care.

It sounds great, doesn't it, a monitored home for your pet if your pet outsurvives you?
I wonder how it would work for someone who can't get to Davis, CA? If you have someone
to care for your pets, vet care, it sounds like, would be set up via your pet trust provisions.

Anyway, it solves a problem for those of us who would like to provide for our pets "in case."
So if you find out anything more, please post, merrihart, and I will, too.

$1500 enrollment fee sounds steep if you can't go to UC Davis for an examination to me.

 Shocked That's a lot of money.

I know a woman who willed that whoever took care of her animals got so much money a month for their care, I thought this was something like that, an aid to willing care for your animals.   Undecided

I'm not in CA, so that's not good for me, but if I ever get there, I'll definitely look into it.

merrihart, I'm not sure you have to be in California. That's what needs to be clarified. I think it can be set up with a caregiver
of your choice, who uses whatever vet you want, and then UC Davis just gets monitoring reports on your pet, too. 

It's an idea that other places besides Davis should look into.

My brain is dead.  I need to read it again now. LOL

This is what getting up at 5am does to me.

It sounds like a good program, especially if you are in that area.  I don't see what they consider a "gift" to the school to be.  With the animal fee at $1500, they may want a sizable donation.   Still exploring the web page, but I would do this, if my caretaker agreed.  Since I live a long way off from CA, any caretaker I find would be footing the bill for vet care.

But if you take the pet to the university, it gets free vet care.

The TLC For Pets Program, which is funded through estate gifts from clients who enroll their pets, will provide lifetime health care for enrolled animals whose owners pre decease them. A contribution of $50,000.00 for each dog and $30,000 for each cat to the TLC for Pets Program will help provide lifetime veterinary care for each enrolled pet. Pets with special needs will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis during the enrollment process.

In addition to enrolling your beloved pets in the TLC for Pets Program, you can elect to make an additional gift to enhance and promote animal health and well-being for all pets through the teaching, research, and service mission of the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Contact the School of Veterinary Medicine's Development Office for details.

Just spotted this part. Those amounts would eliminate many average pet owners, I think. Maybe there's a care program out there
that doesn't require such high amounts if anyone knows of one.
