Joan Bundy, principal of Joan Bundy Law, is a passionate advocate for animals. She is past president of the State Bar of Arizona’s Animal Law Section and, for many years, has been a board member of, volunteered for, or contributed financially to other animal welfare organizations. Although much of her work has benefited household animals such as dogs and cats, she also cares about animals that either are endangered or have been forgotten. For example, read more about her sponsorship of Louis the Pig, who lives at Ironwood Pig Sanctuary north of Tucson.
Joan also integrates her interest in animal welfare into her family law practice. She helps and encourages clients going through divorce to make sure that proper arrangements have been made for pet custody. She also drafts honorary pet trusts, which are legal arrangements to ensure proper care of pets after their owners die.
