How Does an Animal Companion/Pet Trust Work?

At your consultation, you will meet with an attorney who will describe the benefits of an animal companion trust. Generally, the person establishing a pet trust will determine who will serve as trustee for the trust. The trustee must follow the terms and powers granted by the trust document.

Some of the issues handled by the pet trust include:

  • Who will take care of your animal companion
  • The amount of money provided for food
  • The amount of money provided for medical care
  • How the pet should be cared for (e.g., grooming)
