What would happen to your pet if you die?
That's the question prompting a proposed bill at the state capitol.
The bill would allow pet owners to set up financial trusts for their beloved pets. The measure would help people provide Fido or Fluffy with food, shelter, veterinary care and even companionship after they're gone.
Right now people can leave money and directions for care of a pet in their will, but it's up to others to carry out those wishes.
A trust would be a sum of money that a lawyer would oversee and distribute as needed to take care of the pet.
The bill, which in now in committee, would let the courts limit the amount of money left for the care of a pet. Read the entire proposed bill here.
