Is Your Pet's Future Secure?

Create a Pet Trust with a Torrance Attorney

A dog is, as they say, man's best friend, but this adage could apply to almost any pet. Pets truly become members of the family and it can be distressing to think of what will happen to them after you pass. Fortunately, California allows for the creation of pet trusts which can designate a caretaker for your animals and set aside money to be used for their needs. Give your furry friends the future they deserve by consulting with our Torrance estate planning lawyer. Our South Bay estate planning law firm will treat your case with respect and is committed to achieving your desired outcome.

What Information Is Included in a Pet Trust?

You know your pet better than anyone and a trust essentially gives you a way to be there for your pet even after you've passed away. The more detailed your trust is, the better it will be in the long run for both your pet and the appointed caretaker.

Your pet trust should cover all of the following issues:

  • The animals that are protected by the terms of your trust
  • A caretaker for the animal
  • A specific amount of money designated for the animal's care
  • Caretaking instructions
  • A trust enforcer, should the need arise

Additionally, you can include a provision in your trust that details what will happen if you become incapacitated before your death. In this way, your trust can take effect even before you pass away. An attorney who understands your wishes can ensure that they are upheld throughout the creation of your pet trust.

At the Law Offices of James C. Shields, we make every effort to honor and support our clients' best interests every step of the way. We understand the pain that can come with creating a pet trust and will do our best to alleviate your anxiety.
