Blue Cross Pet Nup: the pet equivalent of a pre-nuptial agreement, but with pet welfare at its heart
While many couples put agreements in place to protect their assets, we’re encouraging pet owners to think about their beloved pets.
Signing up to this specially created document to plan for your pets’ futures can help avoid heartache should your relationship come to an end.
We have partnered with divorce lawyers Lloyd Platt & Company in an attempt to stop the numbers of pets getting caught up in marital disputes around the country, and to lessen the stress and heartache for owners and pets alike.

The free Pet Nup document, which can be downloaded below and has been developed in partnership with legal divorce experts, sets out the right of ownership in the event of a divorce or relationship breakdown and covers ongoing pet care.
There are some parts of the agreement that a court will not enforce, such as lifestyle choices like who takes the dog on holiday or how the cat should be cared for, but deciding these details between you could still help to take the conflict out of a difficult and emotional break-up situation.
We have also created a much simpler Deed of Agreement document that sets out who will take ownership in the event of a break-up, without as much detail as the full Pet Nup.
