Give your pet the gift of lifelong care
Your pet gives you loyalty, unconditional love and companionship. You give your pet the best care you can afford. What happens when you’re no longer able to provide that care yourself? A Pet Trust is the answer.
A Will is Not Enough
Pets are considered to be property, so they can’t legally inherit anything. The way to provide for their care is to create a trust. A Pet Trust is an indispensable component of every pet owner’s estate plan. It is a legally-sanctioned arrangement providing for the care and maintenance of pets in the event of the owner’s disability or death. A Pet Trust covers any pet under your care, including dogs, cats, horses, birds or other animals. With a Pet Trust, you can relax, knowing that your pets will be loved and cared for—even if you can’t do it yourself.
How can a Pet Trust benefit you?
- Peace of mind. Because a Pet Trust is a legally-enforceable arrangement, you can be assured that your directions for care will be carried out.
- Control. A Pet Trust memorializes your animal’s needs, preferences and caregivers, providing a legacy of care that meets your high standards.
- Flexibility. There are many options available for the ongoing care of pets. We can show you which approach is right for you.
