Planned Giving

Make Lifesaving Part of Your Legacy


By planning a future gift to PAWS through your will, trust or another way, your lasting impact will be felt in all the work we do: every family made complete with a newly adopted pet, every ailing animal nursed back to health, every struggling pet owner who finds a lifeline at one of our clinics, every litter of orphaned kittens surviving against the odds, and every dog and cat rescued from danger.

Here are some of the ways to meet your personal, financial and charitable goals through planned giving.

INCLUDE PAWS IN YOUR WILL OR ESTATE PLAN


With a bequest to PAWS, you’ll join our Legacy Society and ensure we can continue serving the pets who’ll need us most.

With your support, we will continue to transform Philadelphia.

In the nearly 15 years since we began rescuing homeless pets and preventing others from entering shelters in the first place, shelter admissions have been reduced by two-thirds and the survival rate has climbed from 11% to 91%. Philadelphia is now on the brink of becoming one of the largest no-kill cities in the U.S. As we get closer to our goal, we must also plan to sustain it indefinitely. Make this extraordinary achievement a part of your legacy.

Help ensure a safe future for Philadelphia's animals.
