New Massachusetts Pet Trust Law

Effective April 7, 2011, there is a new law in Massachusetts that allows you to set up a trust for a pet.  In the past, pet owners were limited under Massachusetts law to leaving funds to a person and hoping and praying those funds would be used to take care of the pet.  Under this new law, an actual trust can be set up with the pet as beneficiary.

I have set up a new blog to deal solely with Massachusetts pet trust issues.  You can find it at http://pettrust.info.   Some of the more popular posts there include the following:
