Legacy Gifts & Pet Protectors Society

Are you planning on seeing your attorney or visiting your financial institution soon?

All of the basic information you will need to make North Shore Animal League America the beneficiary of a Legacy Gift can be found here...

Legacy Estate Gifts:

Legacy gifts (often called “planned gifts”) are a powerful way to help Animal League America continue our mission to rescue, nurture, adopt and educate long into the future.

Legacy gifts can take many forms, but all share the unique characteristic that they allow you to ultimately donate more to help save the lives of animals than you may have ever thought possible while retaining the flexibility to donate conservatively during the course of your lifetime.
