Because your Will or Trust is a loving expression of who you are and how you wish to be remembered, be sure you take the time to have it done your way.
Don't let your pets end up homeless, let us help you.
Plan Your Way
After providing for the needs of loved ones, you may choose to benefit charitable organizations you currently support or wish to support in the future.
Valley Animal Center offers Charitable Gifting Options that complement your estate planning goals and may include the future care for your animals.
What You Can Do
Provide your lawyer with this simple statement to include in your Will or Trust.
"I give, devise and bequeath to Valley Animal Center, the sum of ______ (or otherwise describe the gift or specify percentage of estate.)" Include our address and our Charitable Nonprofit Tax ID# 77-0540565.
You may choose to name Valley Animal Center as a beneficiary to some of your assets.
ANGEL CARE FOR YOUR ANIMALS
This option allows you to plan ahead for the care of your animals. We can help you arrange where they will live and be cared for until they are placed for adoption.
QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTION (QCD)
Although not part of a will or trust, if you are 70.5 or older, you may make a QCD (up to $100,000) that counts toward your RMD and is excluded from income taxes.
