Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell signed a bill Tuesday, July 7, allowing residents to set up living trusts with their pets as the beneficiaries.

"[Creating a trust for pets] is a good thing to do, especially because many pets outlive their families," said Sen. Toni Boucher, a co-sponsor of the bill.

Only Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and West Virginia do not have laws authorizing pet trusts at this time, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
