Although we would like to believe we will always be around to care for our pets, it is important to develop a written action plan, such as a pet care trust, for your pet in the event of your death or incapacity.  Your pet care trust can be a part of your Will or your revocable living trust, or it can be a trust all on its own.  The pet care trust identifies the persons you select to be your pet’s caregivers, as well as holds and distributes a portion of your assets to meet your pet’s future needs during any period you are incapacitated or after you die.
