They are 69 and 74.
Is it rude to ask them to write something in their will about the dog? They are local to us, so it'd be easy to take him back should something happen.
How do I WORD that without sounding like a vulture...??
Oh - I mean, we have everyone sign paperwork stating the dog WILL come back here, but I'm thinking something should be in their will or something??

From the Pets for Seniors Program web site:
Purina partners with nearly 200 shelters nationwide to provide senior citizens with reduced cost pet adoptions. Participating humane shelters are reimbursed $50 for every senior adoption to help defray the costs of spaying or neuteringâ€š vaccinationsâ€š and other fees.
GET WITH THE PROGRAM!
Wouldnâ€™t it be great to enable senior citizens in your community to adopt animals at little or no cost? Get involved with the PurinaÂ® Pets for Seniors program!
All organizations who would like to be considered for the Senior Adoption program:
Must have a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization status with a determination letter from the IRS.
May not have a contract with a competitive pet food manufacturer.
Organizations that meet membership criteria should indicate their interest in joining by October 31, 2008. Selected shelters are offered annual agreements for the following year (January 1st-December 31st, 2009).
To qualify for reimbursement, participating senior citizen adopters must complete a PurinaÂ® Pets for Seniors Adoption Application.
You must explain to each senior adopter the new adoption kit program Give A Bowlâ„¢ as well as the benefits of feeding PurinaÂ® brand pet food.
Each quarter, your shelter must submit online adoption reimbursement forms within 60 days from the date of the adoption to qualify for reimbursement from Purina.
Shelters are eligible for contract renewals based on attaining 80% of available reimbursements from the prior contract year.
