Estate Planning / Bequests
Did you know that the property APL occupies was willed to us by someone who wanted to help cats and dogs? The gift was transformative, making it possible for APL to save so many more cats and dogs than we could before.
When you include APL as a beneficiary of your estate, you help ensure that APL’s important work continues on. Though many of the estate bequests APL receives are modest, they certainly are not insignificant. Such gifts help ensure our future of rescuing sick and injured cats and dogs, saving them from euthanasia at animal-control facilities, and finding them new homes.
A bequest is the easiest way to ensure that funds will be available in the future to ensure the welfare of cats and dogs. You may leave a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate, and you may honor the memory of another person or a beloved pet. APL may also be designated as the beneficiary of an insurance policy, annuity, trust, or retirement plan assets. In all cases, APL will work with you to ensure that your wishes are honored.
