UNIONDALE, N.Y., April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans spent nearly $63 billion on their pets last year, but there may be no money better spent than protecting them in case of death, disability, or divorce of their pet parents. In recognition of National Pet Day, the Veterinary Practice Group (VPG) of the law firm of Forchelli, Curto, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Terrana, LLP offers the following tips for pet owners to prepare for life's unexpected twists and turns.
Proof of Ownership: Proof of ownership such as AKC registration, paperwork from the shelter at the time of adoption showing who adopted the pet, or a written acknowledgment of ownership are ways to establish legal ownership.
"The old saying that possession is nine tenths of the law may be true in many cases, but proof of ownership supersedes possession when it comes to pets," said Mary Mongoi, Co-Chair of the Firm's Veterinary Practice Group.
