What Will Your Legacy Be?

Imagine a future without animal homelessness, in which all animals find a warm bed, food to eat, compassionate veterinary care, and a loving home.

The decision to include the Wisconsin Humane Society in your will means your legacy of love will continue for years to come, helping to end animal homelessness and find loving homes for those in need.

Estate gifts, commonly called "planned gifts" include bequests, securities, charitable trusts, life insurance, retirement accounts and more. With thoughtful planning, you can create win-win solutions for you and the animals at the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Since 1879, WHS has worked tirelessly to build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness. We know you have done the same during your lifetime. Please consider leaving a legacy of love for the animals in your estate plans. Future generations depend on the important decisions you make today!
