The Legacy Circle

Man with his dog sitting on a couchAnimals provide unconditional love, affection, and friendship to us every day. For many of us, our pets have played a vital role in enriching our lives. For more than 130 years Animal Humane Society has provided a safe refuge, expert medical care, and the opportunity for animals, just like the ones you love, to find happy, new homes. Bequests to Animal Humane Society help support our locations and ensures our incredible, life-saving work continues well into the future. Interested in including a planned gift to AHS but not sure where to begin? Review our Estate Toolkit for some guidance on what would be the best option for you.

The Legacy Circle is our way of showing its sincere gratitude for the compassionate individuals who care so deeply about all animals that they provide for them during their estate planning.

Become a Member of the Legacy Circle

If you decide to include AHS in your estate planning, fill out the Legacy Circle membership form with as much information as you feel comfortable sharing. All information will be kept strictly confidential.

Your name can also be included in our annual listing to acknowledge your incredible support and set an example for other individuals who share your commitment to animals. Your wisdom and foresight may motivate others to consider their own legacy, and contribute to creating a more humane world for animals for years to come.

Enroll in Loved for Life

When you become a member of the Legacy Circle, you can also plan for the future of your pets. Members can enroll their pets in Animal Humane Society's Loved for Life program whereby AHS will find your pet a loving home in the event that you can no longer care for them. Loved for Life pets are re-homed outside of our typical shelter adoption programs, making the transition as smooth as possible for them.
