I’ve always been an animal person. It started when I was a toddler and my father brought home “Harry”, the hamster. Since that time I’ve progressed to bigger animals including a horse and dogs.
I am a certified specialist in estate planning, trust and probate law by the State Bar of California (Board of Legal Specialization). This area of law causes me to talk to people about very personal matters affecting them and their loved ones. And over the years, it has become clear to me that pets are both very loved by their owners and neglected when it comes to planning for their care once the owner(s) are deceased or incapacitated.
When I looked for resources on this subject on the Internet, I didn’t find as much as I would like. And the little that there was didn’t addressed some of the tougher questions about the logistics of managing the care of a pet after the owner dies. This website is aimed at addressing those questions in a friendly and helpful manner. Please check out our “topics” that specifically address several of these very important and far too overlooked issues.
