Massachusetts Pet Trust Legislation signed into law

On January 7th, Governor Patrick signed legislation allowing funds to be set aside for the care of pets.  A pet owner may establish a fund and designate a trustee so that in the event of death or incapacity, the pet owner can be certain their pet will be cared for.  Massachusetts is one of 44 states to enact pet trust legislation; this is good news for pets, for pet lovers, and for the shelters in our community who traditionally care for pets after the owner has passed away.  Our own Bruce Tarr was one of the co-sponsors of the bill –many thanks to him, to those that drafted and moved this through the legislative process, and to the Governor for signing it.
