The Maryland SPCA held a free seminar for pet owners interested in learning about making plans for their pets should their pets outlive them on Sunday, March 17, 2013 and Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at the Maryland SPCA.

Led by local estate planning attorneys Ken Aneckstein and Ashley Short, attendees learned the basics of setting up pet trusts, how to direct money for the care of pets through wills, the importance of a will overall in protecting an estate and the basic steps that all pet owners should take to ensure that their pets are cared for if they are no longer able to. They also received suggestions on how to identify an appropriate caretaker for their pets.
