Pet Planning – Not Just for the Rich and Eccentric
When people think of someone setting up a Trust for their pet, they might imagine Leona Helmsley’s pet Maltese named Trouble drinking Perrier from a crystal bowl in a lavish Manhattan penthouse. However, you don’t have to be rich and eccentric to set up a Pet Trust. Pet Trusts are most commonly set up by caring individuals who just want to make sure that their non-human family member is taken care of in the event of their own death or disability.

You plan for your human family, leaving them money and painstakingly considering Guardians, Trustees, and Executors. Your furry family members deserve consideration, too! Remember, without you planning for them in advance, they may face the same awful fate that awaits so many other orphaned pets. Setting up a Pet Trust is as easy as 1-2-3 when you go to a qualified estate planning attorney who has experience with setting up such trusts.

Join Peace of Mind Dog Rescue for our Pet Trust Seminar on March 22, 2014 at the Patricia J. Bauer Center, located at 615 Forest Avenue in Pacific Grove from 10:00 a.m. to noon, with speaker John D. Laughton, Esq., an estate planning attorney (visit to learn how to set up a Pet Trust for your special friend. You will sleep better knowing that they will continue purring or wagging their tails even if you’re no longer able to care for them.

To reserve your seats please call the Law Offices of John D. Laughton, A Professional Law Corporation at (831) 649-1122 or Peace Of Mind Dog Rescue at (831)  718-9122.
