For many of us, we worry about what will happen to our pets when we are gone from this earth. Pet trust funds are becoming more and more popular, so that we can be assured that our pets are taken care of. The legality of a pet trust fund does vary from state to state though. Beware that there have also been causes of pet trust fraud where after the pet has passed away, another pet is purchased to pose as the original pet, so the trust funds can still be allocated. There are also organizations that care for pets after the owner has passed away like the California Cat Center’s LifeCare program.
