Making provision for an animal in your Will

It is often the case that people want to make provision in their Wills for their animals.  It is not however possible to leave money (or the entire estate!) to a pet because an animal has no legal standing.

The way round this problem is to gift the animal to an individual together with a cash gift.  Alternatively the executor in the Will could be tasked with finding a suitable person.  It is also possible to impose conditions such as the animal is not to be put down unless on the advice of a vet.
