Planning for Your Dog's Future
Last Will And Testament For Your Beloved Pet: Planning for Your Dog's Future
As a responsible pet owner, you no doubt want to ensure that your furry friend is taken care of in the event of your death. One way to do this is to create a last will and testament for your dog. While pets are not considered legal beneficiaries in the same way that humans are, there are steps you can take to ensure that your dog is cared for in the way that you desire.
One option is to include provisions in your own last will and testament specifying who you want to care for your dog and how you want your pet to be provided for. You can also create a pet trust, which is a legal document that allows you to set aside money and assets specifically for the care of your pet.
An estate administration attorney can help you understand your options for planning for your dog's future and create a plan that meets your needs. At Doucet Co., LPA, we have experience in helping clients create pet trusts and other legal documents to ensure the well-being of their beloved animals.
