Planned giving: Leave a lifesaving legacy for the animals
Ensure a bright, safe future for generations to come by leaving a gift to the animals.
When you leave a gift to Best Friends through your will or trust, you become part of our Forever Friends family, ensuring that homeless pets know love and warmth not only today, but far into the future.
Planned and legacy gifts for the animals
Gift planning helps you turn your savings into lifesaving while meeting your personal, financial, and estate-planning goals.
Will or trust
Making a gift through your will or revocable living trust is a simple and flexible way to save the lives of homeless pets for years to come.
You can allocate any of your unused retirement assets as a gift to our lifesaving efforts, helping to save the lives of cats and dogs.
You can name Best Friends as a primary life insurance beneficiary or as a contingent beneficiary should your other beneficiaries not survive you.
Charitable gift annuity
You can create both a brighter future for homeless pets and receive lifetime income at the same time.
Your donation will be put to immediate use while entitling you to a charitable income tax deduction for the full value of your gift.
Make a gift to the animals by rolling over your IRA, and the distribution won't count as taxable income.
A donation of stock is a great way to support the lifesaving of Best Friends; plus, you’ll receive a significant tax break from the IRS.

Why we give
Our donors believe that, together, we can end the needless killing of dogs and cats in shelters.
I felt such a sense of calm - a sense of relief and joy knowing that all of the animals at Best Friends will be taken care of throughout their lives.
Every little drop in the bucket helps, and we wanted to make it count.
John and Janis Gohl
I started thinking, cats and dogs can't speak for themselves. Someone has to speak for them. So I made Best Friends my beneficiary.
