Remember the Animals in Your Estate Planning
Leaving a bequest to the Bonnie L. Hays Small Animal Shelter not only leaves a legacy in your name, but it also increases our success in saving animals' lives. Whether you designate your bequest to our greatest need, to the Aurora Fund, or to help us remodel and expand our building in the future, every dollar of your gift stays here.
Here's a great example of a generous bequest:
Honoring a Lifetime of Giving
Rebecca Prentice —Becky to her friends and family —adopted several dogs from our shelter over the course of her life. Supporting our shelter has been a tradition in her family. Her parents and three siblings have all adopted pets from the Washington County animal shelter for at least 50 years—long before it even carried the name of Bonnie Hays.
After her passing in 2016, we were able to assist her sister Judy, one of our volunteers, with finding wonderful new homes for Becky's pets who she had adopted from the shelter. Her 11-year-old Shih Tzu Shasta and 16-year-old black cat Nathan were both adopted by loving families.
After a lifetime of support, Becky also made the choice to honor us in her will with a generous bequest. This gift will allow us to continue our good work and give the animals the extras they need to have a second chance. Donations pay for medical care, behavior interventions and more.
Washington County is one of the safest places to be a lost or homeless pet, and people like Rebecca Prentice and her generosity make that possible.
