But not everyone is so lucky to have a sister, another relative or friend who voluntarily takes care of their pet when they cannot. Nevertheless, there is a legal document that gives you the opportunity to satisfy all the needs of your pet in case you become disabled or inaccessible for this. This legal document is called “Pet Trust”.
Pet trust is a formal agreement between you and two other people, the administrator and the beneficiary. The beneficiary is the person who will appoint to care for your pet in case you die or become disabled. The trustee is the person who will manage the funds to cover the costs of caring for your pet, including compensation to the beneficiary, if applicable
In the pet’s power of attorney, you can name the person who will take care of your pet.
You can specify the type of medical care for your pet, the name of the veterinarian who will provide this care, and the critical decisions that you usually need to make if your pet falls into a coma or is in a vegetative state. You can also specify how often your pet will be taken care of, what its diet will be, how special needs will be met, and how often other members of its family will be able to communicate with it. You can also provide your pet’s final arrangement when it passes, in case it is buried or burned. Will there be any memorial or anniversary ceremony or special service? In short, in trusting a pet, you can organize whatever you want for your pet in case of its absence or absence of temporary availability.
There are a few things to keep in mind when building your pet trust. First, you must determine who can be the most suitable person to care for your pet. This should not be a big problem. This person will be a relative or friend who has already shown affectionate and loving care for his animal and maintains the best relations with him. However, make sure that this person agrees with your appointment, that it will not be an exaggerated cost, and that you have the means to work hard to ensure a second home and the well-being of your pet. In addition, you can consult with a lawyer about the different types of pet trust you can build, the person who will control the trust operations, and the best ways to finance the costs of caring for your pet.
Regardless of these and other considerations, the fact is that if you want to make sure that your pet is missing what it currently provides, then trusting pets is the way to go.
