We are not providing any legal advice. For general information purposes only, a Trust Protector is an individual appointed in the trust instrument or by a court for the purpose of enforcing the terms of the pet trust on behalf of the pets. Trust Protectors may also be empowered with the ability to remove and replace Trustees and Pet Guardians, amend trust provisions or take other actions to ensure the intent of the Trustmaker are followed. Trust Protectors are recommended for all trusts that will become irrevocable upon their creation or upon the death of the Trustmaker.
