All My Children Wear Fur Coats: How to Leave a Legacy for Your Pet


Created on September 19, 2014



Lawline Faculty Member Peggy Hoyt, J.D., M.B.A., presents "All My Children Wear Fur Coats: How to Leave a Legacy for Your Pet". 

Pets come in all shapes and sizes - from horses to hamsters, from ferrets to felines - and they inhabit our hearts with their own unique personalities. They share our day-to-day struggles, adventures, and special moments with us.  We share our homes, our beds and our hearts with our pets.  They leave us with a legacy of happy memories after they're gone.  Our pets love us unconditionally, help reduce stress and even enhance longevity. 

Join Peggy Hoyt as she discusses how to create a comprehensive estate plan, trusts, bequests by will, and written action plans all designed to protect your pets.

  2. Explore all the alternatives for planning for your pet including pet trusts, bequests by will, perpetual care alternatives, and animal care panels
