BOSTON, April 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Your pets are part of your family. They depend on you for their care and wellbeing. Gentreo™, a leader in online estate planning, today announced Gentreo Pets, a pet-specific package that includes all the documents that pet owners need to ensure quality of care and provide for their pets in an emergency. It's the first pet-specific bundle offering available in the estate planning industry.
"As many are preparing to travel as COVID restrictions are lifted, making sure our pets' sitters have the right information and paperwork is critical to securing care if needed," says Mary Kate D'Souza, Gentreo's Chief Legal Officer and co-founder.
Gentreo Pets includes:
- Pet Information Sheet to provide pet sitters with all necessary details about their pet, including vet and emergency contact information, nutrition and exercise routines, medications and more.
- Pet Power of Attorney to appoint a caregiver to make decisions about the pet's care if the owner is traveling or otherwise unavailable, such as requesting care or assuring veterinarians that they will be paid for services.
- Pet Trust to provide for pets in the event that the pet owner passes away before the pet.
"Thanks to medical advances, our pets are living longer than they used to. This means we need to make sure they will be cared for if we pass away before they do, and a Pet Trust does this," D'Souza said. "Your pet is viewed as your property, so it would be distributed as your property upon your death. In order to make sure your pet is financially cared for, you need to do a Pet Trust."
Whether the pet is a dog or cat, bird or horse, Gentreo's state-specific and legally binding documents help pet owners provide for their pets and protect their wellbeing.
Pet owners can now sign up for Gentreo Pets for $49 per year at www.GentreoPets.com. Membership includes all pet documents and secure storage in Gentreo's proprietary Digital Vault, where they can share the documents with caregivers and other individuals of their choosing. With the Vault, anyone the pet owner chooses can access documents and information in an emergency with just a couple of clicks.
