Consider what would happen to your pet if something caused you to lose capacity. Do you have someone that you trust to provide for your pet in this event if there is no provision of money?
Gowland Legal suggests that it is worthwhile considering this when you are thinking about executing a power of attorney. It is important that your attorney is aware of your wishes if you do suffer a loss of capacity.
It is also important to think about what would happen to your pet if you got into an accident and were away from your home for a length of time. Do you have anyone that knows you have a pet at home that requires care? This is good practice in case of any emergency which may keep you from caring for your pet.
If you do not have a will or you want to review your will to include a provision for the care of your pet, make an appointment with us at Gowland Legal.
