How to Give
Thoughtful and generous bequests from Estates allow us to finance the essential lifesaving services we provide for our animals. To designate a gift to Friends of Strays, you include a provision in your Will specifying the type and/or amount you would like to give.
A bequest requires special language in your Will or Trust. Please consult your attorney to evaluate your individual circumstances and/or prepare your Will or Estate Plan documents.
Friends of Strays, Inc. can be named a beneficiary to a life insurance policy, a set amount of money, or a specific asset (e.g. 100 shares of stock).
