Pets are family.
Including pets in your estate planning is not typical advice from an estate planning attorney, but it should be. If something happens to you, where will your pets go and who will take care of them?
Kelli utilizes over two decades of estate planning experience to teach you everything you need to know to make sure your pets are taken care of when you can no longer do so. Information includes:
- making simple re-homing decisions
- setting aside funds for pet care (medical and otherwise)
- choosing the right people to take care of your pet
- estate planning document basics
- the important of asset title
- hiring an attorney
- how to handle members who are not pet lovers; and even
- what to do for exotic pets!
With this book for Pet Parents, you will have a step-by-step guide to making decisions on how to tailor your estate planning to include your family members with fur.
"This book belongs in the home of every pet owner."
