Helping You Understand Animal Companion Trusts
Do you need help setting up a trust for your animal companion? Do you worry about who will take care of your dog, cat or any other companion in the event that you pass away?
If you need assistance with an animal companion trust, sometimes called a pet trust, the law office of Connors and Sullivan Attorneys at Law, PLLC, can help. From offices in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and Nassau our firm also represents clients throughout New York City.
How Does An Animal Companion/Pet Trust Works?
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)
