Just a thought, most of us will outlive our pets. Anyway, I was thinking pets now can live to age 14 and over. We also age, my question, is if you do a will etc., does anyone do anything to provide for a pet? In Florida, now, it is legal to set up a pet trust, and, this law just did pass in May, if you have a pet, the remains, can be buried with you it a casket? Fine by me-

Any thoughts of all this? they do need to be in an urn.

Thanks for this information.
soon more states will listen to people with pets. you if florida may do a search pets and burials, or search the statue. Pets, now, and soon more states will listen to the people. Some attorneys have not a clue, therefore be
cautious. just do a seach for your state, or go to the state statue line, and if Florida could make a change, any state can! Contact your rep, with your concerns over your pets, that is just how Florida, did away with the old!

We are in Florida as well.. I didn't hear about all of this. That is interesting! I definitely want to learn more about all of this! I think it is a wonderful idea to set up a trust fund for your dog(s)! Especially people like my husband and I who own three American Pit Bull Terriers and anyone that owns a so-called "dangerous" breed! I would want to make sure our babies are taken care of and not just dumped somewhere or stuck in a shelter to be put to sleep!

My will designates who will take care of my animals if something should happen to me and the funds to provide for them.

I have done this also. In addition I made arrangements with a no-kill shelter to take them and recieve the same amount in donation should the listed designees be unable to take them or preceed me in death. I also had it worded "any and all pets owned at the time of death" so I wouldn't have to have it redone if I outlive my current crew or add new babies. Of course my hubby is listed first
