The impact of your legacy starts today

When you join the Legacy Circle today, part of your gift commitment will be matched to have an immediate impact on animals in need. That means, your love, generosity, and foresight will make the world a more humane place for animals now — and in the years to come.

If you've already included AHS in your estate and would like to join the Legacy Circle, please complete this form now.

The Legacy Circle Initiative is your opportunity to bring your legacy of love to life today.

Create a legacy of love. Include Animal Humane Society in your estate plans with a gift in your will, trust, or by making AHS a beneficiary of your IRA. Haven't created a will yet? We've partnered with FreeWill, which provides a simple, intuitive, and efficient way of creating wills. Start the easy process of writing your will now — at no cost to you!

Notify AHS about your planned gift. Tell us the estimated value of your bequest for future planning.

Help animals in need right now. Ten percent of your gift commitment will be matched (up to $10,000) and can be designated to the AHS program or shelter location that means the most to you, like medical rehabilitation, humane investigations, low-cost veterinary care for struggling families, or your favorite adoption center.

Support the future of animal welfare. Your planned gift makes you a hero for animals today, tomorrow, and in the years to come. It ensures AHS has the resources we need to care for vulnerable animals — no matter what.
