Estate planning for your pet: Who will take care of her when you pass away?

 

Some people love their pets as much as they love their human family. While we take the time and effort to create estate plans that protect our family members, how often do we do the same thing to protect our furry loved ones? In our practice, we are seeing more and more of our clients who want to be sure that their pets are properly provided for in their estate planning. If you have concerns about your pet’s treatment after you pass away, we can help you make proper arrangements and to be sure your estate plan considers your pets.

I recently attended a seminar called Creating Estate Plans That Work for Pets and Their People. The presenter was my friend and colleague Peggy Hoyt who practices law in Central Florida. She is board certified in wills, trusts and estates elder law. Like me, her practice areas include estate planning, elder law and special needs planning.

Peggy has three horses, seven dogs and three cats she calls her “kids in fur coats.” She is the author of two books: All My Children Wear Fur Coats – How to Leave a Legacy for Your Pet and the Pet Lover’s Guide to Mediation.

Peggy reminded us that there are a variety of estate planning options for you and your pets. You can learn more about this practice of law by looking at this page on Peggy’s website: http://hoytbryan.com/animal-law.
