Law meets Life–An occasional blog for North Shore Residents

Pet Round UP: Dogs on the Beach, Dogs in your Will.

The Manchester-by-the-Sea Town Meeting is April 4 and 5, 2011. One warrant item will be whether or not to further restrict dogs on Singing Beach. Did you know that if you vote on the issue that concerns you, and leave the meeting, that the warrant can later be amended and a vote re-taken? If there is a subject of interest to you on the warrant, be ready to stay for the entire meeting.

On another pet related note, Massachusetts just became the latest state to pass PET TRUST LEGISLATION. We now have a statute that allows you to leave a sum of money specifically for the care of your animal when you die. Thank you to Bruce Tarr for co-sponsoring this legislation. More info can be found here:  Pet Trust article

Do you have a great pet sitter, vet, groomer, or pet trainer that you’d like to recommend? Please send along their info, and I’ll do a listing in the next Pet Round UP.

P.S. Manchester residents: Dog licenses need to be obtained from Town Hall by March 31st.
