Best Best & Krieger LLP Trusts & Estates Partner Christine Chacon was featured in a Q&A style article by Whittier Trust, a wealth management and investment firm. Throughout the article, Chacon explains the different ways to provide for family pets in estate plans.

When asked why she believes it’s important for people of means to engage in advance planning for their pets, Chacon said “Pets are like family members. And despite their shorter life expectancy, it’s actually very common for pets to outlive their owners. Most of us can’t imagine a scenario in which our beloved animals are just dropped off at the nearest shelter with no idea how they would fare. Even if you have a family caregiver in mind, pets are expensive and most of us don’t expect others to have to shoulder the costs of caring for our pets into the future.”
