TESTAMENTARY DISPOSITIONS ON BEHALF OF ANIMALS

Abstract

This paper researches into the possibilities of testamentary dispositions on behalf of animals in the case of death. There are certain tendencies regarding these issues in contemporary legal systems and it is only the question of time when the need for their legal regulation in Croatian inheritance law will arise. The institutes of inheritance law de lege lata have been analyzed, which may represent a mechanism for disposing of property in favour of an animal in the case of death of a testator. It points to the need for legal intervention in the Law on Succession and the Law on Foundations that would enable the establishment of a testamentary foundation in favour of a human beneficiary while the fund manager would allocate funds to the beneficiary to cover the costs that the beneficiary has in order to care for the animal.
