Don’t forget your pets when making your estate plan

Have you made arrangements for someone to care for your pets if you become incapacitated? Who will care for them when you die? Have you set aside funds to cover the cost of caring for your pets? What rescue/shelter/organization would you like to have your pets if no one is able or willing to care for them?

These are many of the questions that need to be answered if you have pets. The answer might be to have a Pet Guardian Agreement and/or a Pet Trust.
