When animals come into our lives we think about the years of happy companionship they will provide – not what will happen if for some reason we can’t take care of them anymore. Because animals don’t live as long as humans, we don’t ordinarily consider the consequences of predeceasing them – or what will happen if we become disabled. To ensure that your beloved pet will continue to receive loving care should something unexpected happen to you, it’s critical to plan ahead.
Salisbury Bank and Sand Road Animal Hospital have partnered to offer a free seminar with valuable information on:
- How a Pet Trust can help if a severe change in your health leaves you unable to care for
- The pros and cons of establishing a Pet Trust vs. providing for your pet in your Will.
- Legal aspects of a Pet Trust and how it can safeguard your pet for the remainder of its life.
- How to ensure your pet will be cared for as you wish.
Presenters will be Meredith Tiedemann, Salisbury Bank Vice President and Trust Officer and Attorney Danielle Ferrucci, Partner, Shipman and Goodman.
The seminar will be held:
Thursday, February 7, 2013, 5:30 – 7:00 pm
Sand Road Animal Hospital, 136 Sand Road, Falls Village, CT
The snow date is Thursday, February 14, 2013.
