Planned giving helps fuel our mission
At Happy Paws Animal Rescue, we rely on the generosity of our donors to continue our mission of rescuing and rehabilitating animals in need. Planned giving, such as bequests and gifts in wills, are critical to our ability to provide essential services for our furry friends. These gifts provide long-term support, ensuring that we can continue to make a positive impact on the lives of animals for years to come.
We’ve been donating to Happy Paws for years so it just made sense to include them in our estate plan. Our animals have impacted us deeply and we are happy to support the rescue’s mission for years to come.

Gifts in a will or trust
Donations in your will or trust are (by far) the most popular type of planned gift. Learn more, or get help starting your will (for free!).
Gifting assets not covered by your will — like 401(k) or IRA accounts — may help your heirs avoid unwanted taxes, even if you’re below the estate tax threshold.
