  • Minnesota is 1 of only 4 States Without Statutory Pet Trust Laws

    Most states have laws that allow pet owners to provide for their pets after the owner's death by including a pet trust provision in the will. Minnesota is one of only four states that does not have a Statutory Pet Trust law, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

    In Minnesota, it is recommended that pet owners provide for their pets outside of the will, for example with a stand-alone pet trust.
