Georgia Pet Planning Attorneys

Georgia pet planning attorneys help people make legal plans for the care of their pets if they pass away or can’t care for them anymore. 

They set up pet trusts, which hold money for pet care and give instructions on how to use it. 

These attorneys can also help choose a caregiver for the pets. 

They make sure pets are included in wills and estate plans, ensuring the pets’ well-being is legally protected.

What Georgia Pet Planning Attorneys Help With

When setting up estate plans for pet planning, people need to consider:

  • Caregiver: Choose a trusted person to care for your pets.
  • Pet Trust: Create a trust to set aside funds for pet care.
  • Instructions: Provide clear care instructions in your estate documents.
  • Funds: Determine how much money is needed for your pet’s lifetime care.
  • Successor Caregivers: Name backup caregivers in case the first choice can’t serve.
  • Legal Ownership: Specify who legally owns your pets after you.
  • Permanent Placement: Consider a permanent pet care facility if no individual caregiver is available.

What Happens If You Don’t Do Pet Planning?

If you don’t do pet planning:

  • Uncertain Care: Your pets may not have a designated caregiver who is prepared to take them in.
  • Shelter Risk: Pets could end up in a shelter if no one is available to care for them.
  • Financial Strain: The person who takes your pets might face financial difficulties without funds set aside for pet care.
  • Legal Disputes: Family members or friends might disagree about who should care for your pets.
  • Stress for Pets: Your pets could experience stress or trauma if they are suddenly rehomed without a plan.
  • Potential Euthanasia: In worst-case scenarios, pets could be euthanized if no home is found for them.
