Many of us think of our pets as family members, and want to ensure that they are cared for if we become unable of doing so.

One way to do this is to set up a pet trust, a legal arrangement that provides for the care of a pet in the event of an owner’s disability or death.

1118TPV Entertainment (Pup)To help “pet parents” learn more about pet trusts, the Arizona Animal Welfare League and Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (AAWL & SPCA) is offering a free presentation by attorney David T. Eastman, of Morris Hall PLLC, an estate planning law firm.

This presentation will cover the basics of estate planning for you and your pets, the need to decide who will care for them, and how to set up a pet trust. Handouts covering pet trusts will be provided.

The seminar is to be 10-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14 at the Via Linda Senior Center, 10440 E. Via Linda in Scottsdale, Room 4.
