Ensure The Future

When you include Anderson Humane in your estate plans, you ensure the future of animals for tomorrow. Your planned gift can provide the funding to create innovative, new programs that make positive connections between people and animals, saving even more animals and improving people’s lives.

Creating A Bequest Is Easy & Free!

We’ve teamed up with an online will-creating software called Freewill. You can create a free, legally valid will online in only about 20 minutes using Freewill.

We’re Here To Help

Whether you give a set amount, a percentage of your estate, or one of the other options avaliable,  you will have an extraordinary, positive impact on our future.

Dottie Hinze Legacy Society

Dottie’s legacy began with a visit to the shelter. A retired nurse and longtime pet lover, she was deeply passionate about animals and knew the benefits of human-animal connections. ​​When Dottie passed away in 2019, a donation made from her estate allowed Anderson to purchase 124 acres of farmland, the location for our new Humane Center.

The Dottie Hinze Legacy Society is a circle of visionary supporters who have demonstrated their extraordinary commitment to Anderson’s future by including Anderson in their estate plans.

Please contact Susan Lyons, Director of Major and Planned Gifts, for more information about the Dottie Hinze Legacy Society.
