What happens to the family pet?


For most people, the family pet is as much a member of the household as a spouse and children. It is therefore important to plan for what will happen to your pets upon your death. It is possible to leave pets to the care of a trusted friend or relative, and you can even leave a set amount of money if that person accepts their care. If you have a pet and want to ensure it is cared for by someone of your choosing, you should ensure that this is put into your will.
