My husband and I are in the process of putting together our will and trust. As part of this, I want to make sure I have a guardian in place for Duke and Charlie; plus funds set aside to help care for them in the event that something happened to both Steve and I. I'm working with an attorney and he said we can do a pet trust. I'm just trying to think through so that I can make sure Duke and Charlie don't end up homeless if something happens to us. I know that I want my step-daughter to be their guardian (even though she will not be our primary trustee). I know that I want to have money set aside to cover for their care. I also want to make sure that if for some reason my step-daughter couldn't take care of them, that I would want a no-kill rescue organization to help and I would want them to stay together if at all possible. I got Charlie from As Good as Gold Rescue and Duke from a breeder in downstate IL. As Good As Gold would be my first option for both. I need to review my contract with the breeder to see if she would have dibs first (it would not be my wishes for Duke to go back to the breeder). I think he would be better off with Charlie and As Good as Gold. Now to the question(s), has anybody else done this? What am I not thinking of that I should be? Do I have recourse on not going back to breeder if I think rescue would be better in the event my step-daughter could no longer take care of them?
