Planning for Your Pets Workshop

Sun City Lincoln
Please stay tuned for registration and more information!
By naming the Placer SPCA as a beneficiary of your will, trust, IRA/401K, insurance policy, annuity, or other planned gift you can provide a lasting legacy for the animals and people throughout Placer County.
When you inform the Placer SPCA that you have included us in your Charitable Planned Giving, you become a Circle of Hope Legacy Society member, with special benefits and privileges.
There are many ways to support the Placer SPCA through Planned Charitable Giving. Regardless of the size of your estate, Estate Planning will help you meet your personal, family, and charitable giving goals.
How to leave your lasting legacy with the Placer SPCA
By choosing to name the Placer SPCA as a beneficiary in your will, trust, or in another type of planned gift, you are helping to ensure that the Placer SPCA can continue helping thousands of abandoned, stray, and abused animals throughout Placer County. Your gift will make the future a better place for the animals with which we share our lives.
All that is needed is a short statement in your will or trust. Here are some sample wordings*:
Residual (after other bequests or designations are named)
“I give to the Placer County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Tax ID#94-2607682), the rest and residue of my estate to be used by the Placer County Society for the PRevention of Cruelty to Animals wherever the need is greatest.”
“I give to the Placer County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Tax ID#94-2607682), ___% of my estate to be used by the Placer County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals wherever the need is greatest.”
“I give to the Placer County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Tax ID#94-2607682), the sum of $___ of my estate to be used by the Placer County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals wherever the need is greatest.”
*Please note that this is merely suggested wording; please consult your attorney or an estate planning professional when preparing legal documents.
Lifetime Care for Pets
There comes a time when we must think about the family who may survive us, including our pets. Those of us who cherish our pets as family members want to make sure they are cared for and loved for their entire lives.
The easiest way to ensure your pet’s lifetime care is to ask a trusted friend or family member to care for your pet should anything happen to you. However, if you don’t have a trusted friend or family member willing to care for your pet, the Placer SPCA may be able to help through our Surviving Pets Program. This program is designed to help pet owners by discussing your specific needs and determine the best course of action, whether by utilizing our program or exploring other sanctuaries and lifetime care facilities.
Providing for your pets doesn’t need to be complicated. To learn more about ensuring lifetime care for your pets, we encourage you to attend a Placer SPCA complimentary workshop.
