I Have a Pet, Which I Want to Make Sure is Cared for After My Death. Can I do that with a Living Trust?

You can create a “Pet Trust” as an option; this trust can be for a specific animal or animals or for whatever animals survive you. You can designate different trustees for the care of the pet and the amount allocated for the care of the animal. You will also have the option to designate a trust “enforcer”; this person is a third party who has the right to make sure the funds are actually being used for the care of the animal.
