Posted on Oct. 25, 2011

When people think of a pet Trust for their pet, they might imagine Leona Helmsley’s pet Maltese named Trouble drinking Perrier from a crystal bowl in a lavish Manhattan penthouse.

However, you don’t have to be rich and eccentric to set up a Pet Trust.  Pet Trusts are most commonly set up by caring individuals who just want to make sure that their non-human family member is taken care of in the event of their own death or disability.

You plan for your human family, leaving them money and a trust painstakingly managed by Guardians, Trustees, and Executors. Your furry and feathered family members deserve consideration, too! Remember, without advanced planning, your pets may face the same awful fate that awaits so many other orphaned pets.

About Randy


I help clients prepare for their unexpected death or disability. Using legal documents such as Wills, Trusts, Power of Attorney, LLCs and more, we can ensure that your hard-earned assets go to the right people, at the right time, and in the right way–and are managed by someone who is competent, skilled and trustworthy.

I also help clients identify their non-monetary legacy (values, wisdom, principles, beliefs, life experiences, family name and a commitment to certain charitable causes) and how to effectively pass that legacy on to family and others.

Take time to consider the value of your life to others. Don't miss opportunities to leave a greater legacy than just money.
