Los Angeles pet trusts are more common than many people may think. (Although in other parts of the country, it may seem a perfect fit for Los Angeles.) There are any number of reasons why a person may include his/her pet, or pets as the case may be, in the planning of his/her estate. Rarely is a pet trust the only aspect of a person's estate plan, however.

In a city like Los Angeles, where people often go shopping in the most chic districts with their pets in tow, pet trusts take on a more serious tone. People love their pets and want to make sure their pets are taken care of after they die. Some trusts are activated in case of catastrophic illness or incapacitation as well.

Los Angeles pet trusts make sure that beloved pets go on having a place to live, having good food to eat, and having someone to take care of them. Los Angeles trusts are even more important for people with pets that require extra care, medicine, or dietary attention. For many people, pets are part of the family and deserve to be included in estate planning.

Setting up Los Angeles Pet Trusts

Not all Los Angeles estate planning lawyers will have experience setting up Los Angeles pet trusts. The practice will, of course, be more common in areas like Beverly Hills and Brentwood. However the principles and practices involved in setting up pet trusts, are quite similar to those involved in setting up trusts for minor children.
