A Legacy of Love

The Montgomery County SPCA  has been providing homeless, abused, sick and injured animals with humane care for over a century.

By including our organization as a beneficiary of your will, trust, life insurance or retirement plan, you can provide a lasting testament to your love of animals that will help future generations of pets in need. You can also donate securities or real estate. There are many options for planned gifts which may provide you with tax benefits, increase your current income, or provide additional retirement income while reducing income tax and estate taxes. It is important to explore your options so that both you and the animals receive the full benefit of any considered gift.
