Estate Planning

A bequest to PetConnect Rescue through your Will or Trust helps ensure that we can continue to carry out our mission to rescue abandoned animals and place them in safe, loving and permanent homes. By remembering PetConnect Rescue in your estate planning, you can leave a legacy that will benefit future generations of animals and help provide for our future work. The federal government encourages these gifts or bequests, by allowing an unlimited estate tax charitable deduction. There are various methods for making such a bequest:

Box 60714, Potomac, MD 20859, all (insert percentage amount) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, to be used for its general purposes.”

Contingency Bequest

A contingency bequest allows you to make a gift contingent on certain circumstances. To make a contingency bequest use the following language: “If any of the above-named beneficiaries should predecease me, I hereby bequeath his or her share to PetConnect Rescue, P.O. Box 60714, Potomac, MD 20859, to be used for its general purposes.”
