It sounds silly, doesn’t it? A trust for your pet? Let’s face it. They are often like little children with fur! But who will really care for them if you are not around?
It’s not for everyone, but it may be for you. There are too many true stories of pets given to shelters, euthanized or abandoned when their owners died. None of their owners ever imagined that would happen.
What would happen to them, if something happened to you?
According to reports by the media, over 500,000 animals are abandoned in shelters each year, many because their owner became incapacitated or worse. Of those abandoned animals, over half are euthanized. That is almost 700 family pets killed DAILY, when it could have been avoided.

A “Pet Trust” is the only way of guaranteeing your pet’s safety and protection
Most of us assume that a kind-hearted friend or relative will take care of our pets if we cannot. But ask yourself: Will the person who takes care of my dog, cat, bird or horse be there when I need them? Will your son marry someone allergic to pets, or their children grow up with an allergy? Will the landlord or condo association allow pets? If they do love your pet just as you do, how will they afford the many expenses associated with the care of your furry friend?
Many questions, more uncertainties.
By creating a trust for your pet, you can fund his or her personal and medical care; take the financial burden off your pet’s caretaker and choose several persons who will care for your best friend if you or your first choice of caretaker is no longer able.
The Trusts we create for your pets are unique
We have designed a unique way of providing for your pets and funding their care. You can do it through your will; a life insurance policy or retirement account; with cash while you are alive; or in some combination of all three.
And best of all, if the money you set aside for your pet’s future outlives your pet, you can donate part or all of it, in your pet’s name or in your name, to the charity of your choice.
