Pet Estate Planning

Knowing that pets usually have shorter lifespans than humans, you may have planned for your animal friend’s passing. But what if you are the one who becomes ill or incapacitated, or who dies first?

As a responsible pet owner, you provide your pet with food and water, shelter, veterinary care, and love. To ensure that your beloved pet will continue to receive this if something unexpected were to happen to you, it’s critical to plan ahead.

One of the main goals of estate planning is to provide for your loved ones, and for many of us, “loved ones” includes our pets. While you can always ask a friend or relative to look out for your pet, they aren’t legally obligated to unless you set up an estate plan for this.

Consult your attorney to establish a plan for the care of your pet and to choose the location where your animals will live out the rest of their lives.

Here at Eight Mile Ranch we offer the care and love for your pet that will give you and your family peace of mind. We are a licensed facility and have had many years of experience caring for pets and animals of all kinds who have been left in our care at their owner’s passing.
