Pet Trusts and Pet Care Provisions

Consider including pet care provisions in your estate plan – set aside sufficient funds to be put in carefully selected hands to take care of your service or companion animals. If you own a horse, or an animal with long life expectancy, you may need more sophisticated planning, including a stand-alone pet trust. Or, if you don’t have someone you can rely on to take in and care for your pets, consider including in your estate plan an organization that would be able to board and care for your animals.
