California bill SB 685 makes pet trusts enforceable
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a new bill into law today (7/22/08) in California making pet trusts enforceable. This new law makes it much easier now for pet lovers to include pets in their wills.
This is a change from the way California has treated wills that included pets in the past and will make it now enforceable in court. You can read more about the story and decision on the LA Times website.
