Pets are valued family members and are a large contributor to an elderly person’s health, providing companionship that leads to lower stress and anxiety levels. Pet owners deserve the right to ensure that their pets are cared for when they pass away. A pet trust covers the upkeep and care of one or more of your pets or companion animals in the event of the owner’s death or the owner’s inability to properly care for them. With this trust, pet owners assign the important responsibility of taking care of their pet to a pet guardian while also appointing a trustee to carry out the execution of their will and the specific instructions therein.
Pet trusts are designed to give pet owners peace of mind, especially if there is worry that pets may be neglected in the event of the owner’s death.
