A pet trust is a legally sanctioned arrangement in all 50 states that allows you to set aside funds for your pet’s care in the event you die or become disabled. After the pet dies, any remaining funds are distributed among your heirs as directed by the trust terms. The basic guidelines are comparable to trusts for people. The “grantor” creates the trust to take effect during his or her lifetime or at death. Typically, a trustee holds property for the benefit of the grantor’s pet. Payments to a designated caregiver are regularly made. Contact us for details.
