PLANNING FOR FUR BABIES
Do you know who will take care of your four (or two, or no)-legged friend if you were no longer able to?
How to take care of your pets when you no longer can.Whether you*re concerned about your pet not ending up in a shelter, being moved across state, or having continued access to its accustomed lifestyle and favorite chew toys, an estate plan may provide guidance to your pet*s new owner after you*re gone and for continued financial support for your pet.
No, you don't have to create a pet trust (but you can).While a pet trust is likely not necessary for everyone, even a simple provision to address your pet and their needs may be worthwhile to incorporate into your plan. Schedule a visit with your estate planning attorney to discuss these considerations.
