Protect the animals you love. Create a lasting partnership with Network for Animals. Your will makes it possible.

By including Network for Animals in your will you will be able to continue providing a second chance for abused and unwanted dogs and other animals. You can make your bequest for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or specific assets from your estate. Bequests, like other gifts, can be designated for many purposes or given without restriction. At Network for Animals we are pledged to focus our energies on your wishes and needs.

Your first step, once you decide to leave a gift, is to contact your attorney to help you draw up your will. Your attorney will need to know our legal name is Network for Animals USA, Inc. We are a non-profit charitable organization (I.D. #47-1431869). Our 501(c)(3) status under the Internal Revenue Code provides a tax saving for you and your estate.

There are three main types of bequests: percentage, residual and specific. Your charitable bequest or intent to bequest will gain you entry into the Network for Animals Legacy Society.

The Percentage Bequest

A percentage bequest is a bequest of a certain percentage of your estate or of another asset. An example of a percentage bequests might be providing that, upon your death, your house be sold and that each of your three children receive one-third of the net proceeds. You designate that a specific percentage, anywhere from 1-100% of your estate, is left to Network for Animals. The greatest advantage of this structure is that, as your estate increases in value over time, your gift will keep pace and your support for Network for Animals will grow.

I give, bequeath, and devise (state percentage amount) to Network for Animals USA, Inc., a qualified 501(c)(3) charitable institution, located in Sanibel, Florida, to be used to provide a second chance for animals caught up in the cruel cycle of torture, abuse, and exploitation.

The Residual Bequest

A residual bequest is a bequest of all or a portion of the remainder or residue of your estate after specific and other bequests have been distributed. An example of this type of bequest might be providing that everything that remains after all previous bequests have been satisfied should be given to Network for Animals. By naming Network for Animals as the beneficiary of this residue, you simplify the probate process and ensure that the government doesn’t allocate the remainder of your estate as you see fit.

I give, bequeath, and devise (all, or state percentage or shares) of the rest, residue, and remainder of property, both real and personal, wherever situated, which I may own or be entitled to at my death, to Network for Animals USA, Inc., a qualified 501(c)(3) charitable institution, located in Sanibel, Florida, to be used to provide a second chance for animals caught up in the cruel cycle of torture, abuse, and exploitation.

The Specific Bequest

A specific bequest is a bequest for a specific item or dollar amount. An example of a specific bequest might be providing that your baseball autographed by Babe Ruth be given to your nephew, Billy, at your death.

I give, bequeath, and devise (state amount or item) to Network for Animals USA, Inc., a qualified 501(c)(3) charitable institution, located in Sanibel, Florida, to be used to provide a second chance for animals caught up in the cruel cycle of torture, abuse, and exploitation.

We are grateful to supporters who have already advised us of their intentions to provide for the animals by naming Network for Animals in their wills, and honor them with membership in the Network for Animals Legacy Society:
