According to this informative article from the Wall Street Journal on how to structure things for the benefit of pets who outlive their owners, there are already 17 states that have laws that specifically allow people to create trusts for their pets. You can always tell a growing trend by the areas in which attorneys specialize. More of them are concentrating on pet estate planning, for $200 to $300 per hour.
