Estate Planning

Have you ever thought about including Beagle Paws in your will ? There are opportunities to consider the care of beagles in need in your long-term estate or financial plans.

A “charitable bequest” in your will offer many benefits:

Simplicity– All you need to do is add a few sentences to your will or trust. The official bequest language is “I, [name], of [city, province, postal code], give, devise, and bequeath to Beagle Paws [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

Flexibility– Since you are not actually making a gift until your passing, you can change your mind at any time.

Versatility– You can structure the bequest however you’d like- to leave a specific item such as land or property, a specific amount of money or percentage of the estate, or make the gift contingent on certain events.

Tax Relief– If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is eligible for an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift’s full value.

To make a charitable bequest, you will need a current will or a revocable living trust.

You can choose to make a specific bequest of a certain dollar amount, securities, or property, or you can choose to make a gift as a percentage of your total estate. After your passing, Beagle Paws will receive your gift. If you have any questions please email
