I found this question on line. "My grandmother with Alzheimer's can no longer care for our elderly family dog. Can I bring her to live with me"? I must admit that my first reaction is do they want the pet or grandma to live with them? lol. but seriously this is a real question or concern.
According to https://answers.justia.com/questions/answered/california/animal-dog-law
William John Light's the answer is:
I assume that someone has power of attorney for your grandmother with regard to decisions regarding her property, or perhaps a conservatorship has been established. Whomever has been given those decision making responsibilities can decide what happens with your grandmother's property, including the dog. If there is no one in that position, then a conservatorship should be established so that someone with legal authority can make decisions about the property and dog.
My two cents on it is that this is something that needs to be considered sooner than later. It would even be great to have grandma in on the plan if at all possible and get it in writing before grandma's condition is advanced.
If you have not planned ahead and need an attorney that is affordable and accessible legal shield is a great plan that can help. Many services are free and you will never pay full price for anything.

When I am not enjoying my work with pets I am educating people about their legal rights. Many people are not aware of how what pet ownership has to do with legal issues. In this blog I will show the connection and how we all can live more and worry less.
