Estate Planning

Estate Planning - Delta County Animal ShelterMaking a planned gift to the Delta Animal Shelter is a meaningful way to carry forward your compassion and concern for animals.  We would be glad to discuss any planned giving option with you – in confidence and without obligation.

Bequests are a great way to support a beloved organization. Many people would like to help but feel they cannot afford to make such a gift today. A bequest by will is a unique way to ensure that our work will continue into the future. Donors can specify a dollar amount or a percentage of assets in their will, designating a particular program at the Delta Animal Shelter or leaving the gift to be used where it is needed most at the discretion of our Board of Directors.

Beneficiary designations are another easy way to give future gifts. Simply name Delta Animal Shelter, Inc. (Tax ID 45-2725668) as the beneficiary of the account. This can be done for retirement accounts, bank accounts and life insurance policies.

If you name Delta Animal Shelter as a beneficiary of your will or account, please let us know so that we can express our appreciation for your thoughtfulness. If you would like assistance or need additional information, please contact manager Susan Gartland at 789-0230 or deltaanimals@yahoo.com

The Delta Animal Shelter is Delta County’s only animal shelter, providing shelter, food and medical care to over 1200 animals each year. Beyond the basics, each animal receives compassionate care from our staff and volunteers while they wait to be reunited with their families or to find a new home.

Our volunteers are our most important asset and they do a remarkable job for the animals, the shelter and our programs. Every day, a volunteer improves the lives of the animals here at the Delta Animal Shelter.

About Delta Animal Shelter:

The Delta Animal Shelter is a 501(c)3 private, non-profit organization dedicated to the direct care of the animals of Delta County. This shelter was operated by the County Sheriffs department until budget cuts forced a permanent closure of the facility in August of 2011. To prevent a permanent closure, a group of animal lovers, The Delta Area Animal Society, took over operations.

We are the county’s only animal shelter, providing a safe shelter, food and medical care to over 1200 animals each year. We are an open-admissions shelter, and turn no animal away. We shelter and provide direct care to any animal in need. Each animal receives compassionate care from our staff and volunteers while they wait to be reunited with their families or to find a new forever home. Warm blankets, toys and treats, time spent socializing with caring people; all are a part of the animals’ experience at the Delta Animal Shelter.
