When you plan for your estate, you include the people you love – but don’t forget about planning for your pets!
A recent article in Kiplinger was a bit more blunt: “Put a Plan in Place to Ensure [for your] Pets' Care.”
It is easy to forget about planning for your pet, or to simply assume that someone will step in and care for them. Unlike family heirlooms or bank accounts, other family members may not step up to care for your pets. Even if they would like to, it may not work for them financially, logistically, allergenically, or otherwise.
Unfortunately, things do not always fall into place so easily when pets are at stake. In the end, providing for your special friends is your last responsibility for them.
