PRLog - Nov. 9, 2012 - CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Evan Guthrie of the Evan Guthrie Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina had an article published by the American Bar Association Animal Law Committee of The Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section’s Fall 2012 Newsletter. The mission of the ABA TIPS Animal Law Committee is To address all issues concerning the intersection of animals and the law to create a paradigm shift resulting in a just world for all. The article written by Attorney Evan Guthrie is titled “Pet Planning: Choice Over Chance” and covers the estate planning aspects that pet owners may consider as part of their ownership. They key question behind the article is what steps should a pet owner take to ensure that their animal is properly cared for if they were no longer around. The article claims that an estimated half million pets per year are orphaned because their owner dies or becomes incapacitated and that many of those pets are put down because there is no one to take care of them. Pet planning is the simple act of planning ahead to make sure that an animal’s needs are met after the owner is gone.

The article says that while some may find it unreasonable to leave an inheritance to a pet, a growing twenty seven percent of Americans that make an estate plan include a provision for the future care of a pet. Mr. Guthrie’s article goes on to explain the two major categories of pet planning. The first major category is coming up with a short term plan that covers the immediate period following an owner’s absence and coming up with a solid plan to make sure there is no interruption in care to the pet and that someone can step in right away and make sure that all of the pet’s needs are met. The second major category of pet planning highlighted in the article is to have a long term plan for a pet’s care that will extend beyond the first few weeks of an owner’s absence and make sure that the pet has a suitable permanent home for the rest of the pet’s life. Attorney Guthrie’s article lists specific steps and action plans that a pet owner can make to make sure that their pet is taken care of after an owner is gone. Mr. Guthrie looks forward to being part of future American Bar Association events and publications and is in the process of planning pet planning events in the Charleston, SC area.
