Can I leave my assets to my pets? This question is becoming more and more popular and Florida has passed a statute, as far as trusts are concerned, that specifically authorize a trust for your pets. It’s usually included in your will and provides you designate who you wish to care for the pet, and then you appoint someone else to supervise that the funds are applied for the pet’s use and care.
There is a specific provision for a pet trust, so if you’re interested in providing for your pet under your will, please give me a call and set up an appointment and I’ll be happy to assist you in setting up a trust provision for your pet when you’re no longer with us. My phone number is (727) 847-2288.
