Learn about Planned Giving options  & Leave A Lasting Legacy

“Caring for animals gives life purpose. This is exactly why i am remembering Animal Care Sanctuary in my Will.  I consider my legacy to be a gift of joy” – Virginia Davila

Your contribution to Animal Care Sanctuary will be life saving.

You can leave a lasting legacy for the animals through a bequest in your will, a trust, or other planned gifts to help ensure that animals continue to be rescued, protected and re-homed far into the future.

Every cat that we admit to the sanctuary costs a minimum of $1275 annually for medical care including vaccinations, medication, food, caregiving and socialization.  For every dog those costs increase to $2385 per year. The more we admit, the more we can adopt, the more we can save.

The planned giving staff at Animal Care Sanctuary would love to talk to you about the many opportunities for charitable giving that can save the lives of pets.
