Protection For Your Pets
Peace of Mind For You

Despite the best of intentions, promises made by family and friends are oftentimes unfulfilled due to unforeseen, and at times unavoidable, circumstances. It is essential to create a legally enforceable plan to shelter your pets now, so you can rest assured that they will be lovingly and properly cared for should a time come that you cannot take care of your Pet during your life or after your death.Proper planning with the help of a trust attorney can provide protection for your beloved Pet, not only upon death, but also upon periods of incapacity. When you are no longer able to provide for the care of your Pet, a properly created Pet Care Trust can serve as a legally binding plan that ensures that there are funds available and a care taking system in place to care for your Pet. Planning can lead to peace of mind, reducing the anxiety that many Pet Owners experience when they envision their beloved Pet living without them.
