  • This process was so easy and the reward, a sense of security for my pet, is truly priceless! The recommended financial guidance - how much to set a side for pets and also the average cost of medical/ surgical trip - was so helpful!

  • The process was super easy. It is great to know that there is a plan in place for my dog in the event that anything ever happened to one of us. I feel a lot better just having the document in place

    Pet Plan
  • This took the ruff parts out of the pet protection process. Simple, quick, and easy way to ensure my good boy Dingle would receive all the pets just in case I could no longer give them.

    Pet Plan
  • My family is not the most cat friendly and it would break my heart if my two kitties would end up going back to the shelter after we adopted them years ago. Now we know our two cats will be properly taken care of if anything were to happen

    Commonly Asked Questions

      What is a pet estate plan?

      The Just In Case Estates Pet Estate Plan is a set of legal documents through which a pet parent can ensure the wellbeing of their pet. It includes a Pet Protection Plan and (optionally) a limited Pet Financial Power of Attorney and Limited HIPAA Authorization.

      What is a Pet Protection Plan?

      The Just In Case Estates Pet Protection Plan contains five essential components:

      1. Identification of Pets
      2. Designation of Primary and Backup Pet Guardians
      3. Veterinarian identification and contact information
      4. Pet medicine and allergy information
      5. Pet feeding, care, and exercise instructions

      The Just In Case Estates Pet Protection Plan works by creating a legally enforceable contract between the pet parent and the pet guardian.

      What is a Limited Pet Financial Power of Attorney?

      A Limited Pet Financial Power of Attorney is a type of financial power of attorney with a scope limited to supporting the care and comfort of your pets. In your Limited Pet Financial Power of Attorney, you can authorize your pet guardian to use your finances up to a certain amount in the event of a pet emergency.

      What do I need to do to make my pet estate plan official?

      Your pet estate plan is not official until after you complete your signing ceremony.

      Since your pet estate plan works as a contract between you and your pet guardian, at a minimum both you and the pet guardian need to sign the document.

      You can also sign in the presence of a witness and/or a notary public to decrease the likelihood that someone else will contest the validity of the agreement.

      What is the difference between a pet estate plan and a pet trust?

      We created the Just In Case Estates Pet Estate Plan to mirror the benefits of a standalone pet trust. The key difference between the Just In Case Estates Pet Estate Plan and a traditional pet trust is that a pet estate plan is much easier and less expensive to set up and maintain.

      For a full comparison of the benefits and differences between the pet estate plan and pet trust, check out our Pet Protection Plan vs Pet Trust article.

      How much does a pet trust cost?

      The cost to create a pet trust with an attorney can range from several hundred to even a few thousand dollars.

      The cost to create a pet estate plan with Just In Case Estates, which mirrors the benefits of a pet trust, is free.
