Legacy Circle

By including Animal Humane Society in your estate plans, you are creating your legacy – a legacy that will help find homes for animals in need, educate the community about responsible pet ownership, and investigate animal cruelty.

Planned gifts come in all sizes and are typically made through your will or by naming AHS as a beneficiary. By joining our Legacy Circle, you will ensure Animal Humane Society is always here for the animals who need us. That’s quite a legacy.

If you've included us in your estate plans, please let us know by filling out the Legacy Circle membership form.
