From NPR, “Was Promise of Pet Care After the Rapture a Hoax?” The New Hampshire Insurance Department is investigating Eternal Earth-Bound Pets to determine exactly that. Here is the company’s website.
Useful info from the company’s FAQ page:
Q: What if one of my family members are left behind. Will you still take possession of my pet?
A: That depends. When the rescuer arrives, if your loved one wants to retain possession of the pet, the pet stays in the home. We expect in these circumstances that the pet will offer the family member some comfort and stability given the trauma of what has occurred. If the family member prefers, we will adopt the pet per our contract.
Q: How can your rescuers possibly pay for my pet’s care for only $135.00?
A: The $135.00 fee for one pet is not for the cost of their care. It is to compensate the rescuers for their travel, cover website expenses, and provide a profit margin. The rescuers have agreed to adopt your pet as their own and care for them as they do their own pets, at their own expense.
