Planning For Your Pet
As much as you love your pet, unfortunately, the law sees them as “chattel” or personal property, not as living beings. Also unfortunate is the reality that others may not see the divine spark you share with your pet and thereby undervalue them once you are gone.
Incorporating terms of care for your pet once you are gone or while you are incapacitated in an estate plan is becoming more popular. There are many way this can be done including specific bequests in your last will and testament or even a dedicated pet trust.
For as much love as your pet has provided you over the years, a small consideration for it’s well-being after you are gone is easily accomplished. Contact one of our qualified pet estate planning attorneys today so you can have the comfort that tomorrow is secured for your pet.
