Considerations for an Arizona Pet Trust

Like all aspects of an estate plan, a pet trust requires diligent analysis of your particular situation. The Stewart Law Group will not try to apply a “one-size-fits-all” approach to the creation of your pet trust. Instead, we will listen to your concerns and analyze your particular case. Some of the questions we may ask include:

  • Do your pets have any special medical or dietary needs?
  • Who will be the guardian or your pet(s)?
  • Do you have the appropriate funds necessary for the life-long care of your pet(s)?
  • Are the animals included as part of your estate’s assets? Horses and other animals may require a different arrangement to ensure they are cared for properly.

Like all trusts or estate plans that involve guardians and trustees, choosing the right person or entity to administer your trust is absolutely vital. The Stewart Law Group can help you make this vital decision as you plan your estate and ensure your pets’ secure and happy future.

While setting up a pet trust for your dog or cat may be your goal, you may also have concerns about your horse, bird or other animals in the event of your death or incapacitation. To provide for your animal’s care for ten or twenty years—or even more—may require considerable funds and detailed long-term planning. A secondary guardian may also be necessary to care for your animals if the animal thrives for many years and the primary guardian passes away.

Your intentions may be clear and quite simple when it comes to a pet trust. But to provide the legal and financial means necessary for a pet trust, there may be considerable complexity. By contacting the Stewart Law Group, you will have your questions answered and options thoroughly explored. Our job is to listen to your concerns and suggest solutions to even your most intricate estate plan needs. With the Stewart Law Group, you can rest with peace of mind.
