More South Florida pet owners provide for animal pals in wills
Courtesy of the Sun-Sentinel, more people in South Florida are providing for their pets in their wills. The Florida Legislature amended Florida's pet trust law this year. Thirty-eight other states now have some form of statutory mechanism to provide for the care of animal companions after death. The Sun-Sentinel article also references the Stevenson Companion Animal Life-Care Center, which is connected to the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and was started in 1993 when states began passing pet trust legislation.
