Options include making a gift in your will, adding us as a beneficiary on an insurance policy, and/or allocating assets from a retirement account.

Best Friends Animal Society, a national leader in the no-kill movement, has great information on its website if you’re interested in learning more about these options.

You can also bring the following text to a financial or legal professional, as a starting point, while you plan your estate:

“I give to Furry Friends Refuge, an Iowa corporation with its principal offices at 1211 Grand Ave. in West Des Moines, IA 50265, (the sum of $__) (all or __% of my residual estate) to be used for its general purposes.”

Be sure to also share our tax identification number: 26-1439111.
