Can I include my pet in my Will?
Do you have a beloved dog or cat and are wondering what will happen to them if you pass away?
You can include them in your Will so that somebody is nominated to look after them and this is often accompanied with a small gift of money to assist with the costs of their care. You can also express, if you have no such person, a charity you would like to help to rehome them.
If you do not want to put such a clause in your Will, you can instead express any wishes you have in a letter of wishes. A letter of wishes accompanies your Will but is not legally binding. It is there to guide your executors who should try to carry out those wishes.
