Protect the welfare and security of family pets and all animals. This book provides the information you need to understand the legal concepts and practical applications of pet trusts.
Pet law, including, in particular, pet trusts and a relatively new and revolutionary instrument called the pet protection agreement, is continually evolving. Recent changes in estate law have transformed the way in which courts now deal with domestic animals. The shift is ongoing, and the trend is toward a much more enlightened view of pets that improves greatly on their legal status as property. These changes bring new responsibilities and new opportunities to accountants and financial and legal advisors who should now consider companion animals in a completely different light and advise their clients accordingly.
This book provides all the information you will need to understand these new legal concepts, and it outlines practical applications that will benefit your clients, their pets, and your practice. A companion CD includes questionnaires, forms, and templates that can be used by professional planners, trusted advisors, and clients to create legal documents that protect the welfare and security of family pets and all animals.
