Ask an attorney about...

 

If you die or get ill, your Lucky's luck may run out. Animals are considered property - like a house, or money - and unless you've made provisions, your doggy could end up living out its last days ownerless.

When you die, your pet becomes part of your estate and if you haven't made any plans, their fate is in someone else's hands. Most often no one steps in and they end up at the local animal shelter. In Canada we love our pets - mostly cats and dogs. One study found that more than half of all Canadian homes own a cat or a dog. More than any other pet, they are the subjects of will provisions. The most important step is to choose a long-term caregiver in case you become disabled and for when you die. Once you've taken interim measures to protect your pet, then develop a permanent plan.  Besides naming someone, leave funds for costs. Plan in advance of disaster and put plans in place to benefit yourself, your family and pets...

 

Just think about this...
