Pets are family. As family, pet parents want to make sure their fur children are cared for and protected as well as their human children. Pet trusts are an excellent way to make sure that your furry family are protected after you are gone. Pet trusts can also provide comfort and care to your pet in the event of a sudden misfortune, leaving you unable to talk or move. In case of such a situation, you can leave directives to make sure your pets are cared for while you are incapacitated.
It is a bad idea to name your pet in your will because pets cannot inherit property. The probate process is also long and slow. By the time probate finishes, your pet might suffer from lack of care with no recourse for your pet’s suffering. That is why it is so important to make sure you plan ahead for many possibilities with an experienced pet trust attorney. Horses, dogs, cats, sheep, pigs, goats, or any animal you own can be named as a beneficiary of a pet trust. Our pet trust attorneys can make sure your furry family member is taken care of and provided for through a secure and stable pet trust plan. We will go over detailed plans, instructions, and the different roles or people or organizations responsible for your pet’s long term care to ensure peace of mind for you.
