Planned Giving

Leave a Legacy of Love
Where Do I Start?
It's hard to say what it is about pets that leave such a lasting mark on us. Perhaps it's their remarkable ability to love unconditionally, to forgive, to live life fully at the moment. Maybe it's simply the way they prance about on walks or take over your bed at night. Whatever it is, your pets have left a unique imprint on your heart, helping to shape what matters to you most today.  Your love of all animals, forged by those deep bonds, has already helped create a better life for many homeless pets.

By making a gift to the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society through your will, trust, or another legacy plan, you can create a long-lasting gift to help our furry best friends well into the future. Regardless of what gift option you choose, your donation will be used in the way it is intended and with the highest respect for your wishes. It is because of your kindness that we can continue to support our programs and services, including receiving and adopting animals, education outreach programs, animal cruelty investigations, community outreach, and more.

With simple planning now, your acts of kindness will continue to make a difference for homeless pets in our area for years to come. Thank you for your extraordinary generosity in considering the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society in your planned giving. You are helping to continue a long tradition of creating a safe haven and human voice for all animals in need.
