I didn't know there there was any way to legally ensure that our pets are cared for as per our wishes if we die before them. Turns out 39 states in the US recognize trust funds set up for that purpose. I'm going to look into this some more.
|There are two types of pet trusts available for animal owners. A traditional pet trust, the type Janes opted for, enlists a trustee who makes sure the person caring for a pet follows the instructions left by the owner. A statutory pet trust is the second type. It states that a certain amount of money is to be held to provide care for the pet and state representatives fill any loopholes concerning care.|
