Plan for the care of your animal companions. Even though your pet is an important member of your family, in the eyes of the law, pets are merely personal property, like your vehicle. You can mention your pet in your will, but there is no guarantee that your wishes will be followed. If want to ensure that your pet companion is cared for after you have passed away, a pet trust might be the right solution. With a pet trust, you can leave money to be used for the care of your pet. You place someone in charge of managing and spending the money for the benefit of your pet, following a written set of legally binding instructions that you provide. The Eidson Law Firm can prepare a Florida Pet Trust that is right for you and your animal companion.
