Oftentimes we are able to arrange for family or friends to provide care for our pets should something happen to us. Unfortunately, sometimes this is not possible and we are left with the unsettling prospect of an uncertain future for our beloved pets. This is where Animal Friends can step in and provide peace of mind.

By making a planned gift* of $5,000 or more per pet you can become a member of Animal Friends’ Lifesavers Society. As a member, your dog, cat or rabbit will receive guaranteed, immediate entry into our compassionate, holistic network of care. Animal Friends will provide all necessary social, behavioral and medical care and treatment for your pet until he or she is placed into a loving home** matched with his or her needs and personality traits.


Program Promises

  • You have the opportunity to write detailed care instructions that will be given to your pet’s future guardians.
  • Your pet will have access to our network of foster homes and cared for there if adoption is not immediate.
  • While under our care, your pet will continue to receive socialization, enrichment and medical care and vaccines, as needed, from our veterinary staff.

* Animal Friends can accept real estate or investment assets as well as cash bequests.

** In accordance with our placement policies, please note that in keeping with our commitment to reduce pet overpopulation, Animal Friends will spay/neuter and microchip all animals adopted through the Lifesaver Society. Also note that any animal adopted through Animal Friends is guaranteed to be accepted back into our care if for any reason the adoptive home can no longer provide necessary care.
