Does your state even allow pet trusts, etc.? Did you have problems getting this done? Do you have suggestions?

I do not know and never thought about it. We made arrangements with our daughter to care for our cat.

Your best bet is to talk with a lawyer in your state. You might want to see if you can set up an "empty" trust that will be funded by your life insurance. That is our plan, since we don't really have substantial assets.

My wife has been on me about doing this, so I'm sure it will get done soon.

I did make provision in my will for the care of my pet(s). It wasn't a problem in Missouri. I did check with the individual first. My husband and I don't have children so we thought this was the best way to handle our pet(s).

I have a provision in my will that the person who takes care of my pets will have $10,000 for their care. It's going to someone who would take care of them, anyway, but this makes it not a financial burden for them.

If your state doesn't allow pet tructs for your pet why not make a trust for your lcoal shelter?
