What is a Pet Will?
A Pet Will is a legal document that allows pet owners to specify how their pets should be taken care of after they pass away. It is a document that is similar to a traditional Will, but it is designed specifically to address the care and well-being of a person’s fur friends.
The legal document allows the owner to specify who will take care of their pets after they pass away, as well as how much money should be set aside for the care of the animal(s) under your care. The document can also include instructions for the feeding, exercise, medical care, special needs, etc. that the pet(s) may have.
It probably isn’t surprising when people call themselves “dog moms” or “fur moms” in this day and age.
One of the main benefits of this legal document is that it ensures that the pet will be taken care of by someone who the owner trusts and who has the resources and ability to provide for the pet’s needs. It also helps to avoid disputes among family members or friends over who should take care of the pet after the owner’s passing.
It is important to note that a pet Will is a legally binding document, and should be created with the help of an experienced estate planning attorney to ensure that it is properly structured and complies with all legal requirements in the owner’s jurisdiction.
