Leave a Legacy

“There is no disease or condition of companion animals that takes more of their lives than euthanasia.” Janet M. Scarlett, DVM, MPH, PhD, Professor of Epidemiology at Cornell University.

With an estimated 5-6 million pets euthanized each year, our task is an enormous one. We are committed and ready for the challenge. From our humble beginnings in 1999 as a system of foster care homes to the opening of our Adoption Center in 2002 and on to the opening of three veterinary hospitals, we continue to look to the future to ensure we can help as many pets as possible.

There are a number of ways that you can create a lasting legacy of helping pets through Second Chance including Bequests, Charitable Gift Annuities, Pooled Income Funds, Life Insurance, Property and others. We can offer you assistance in deciding which options are best for you and your family. Please contact us. Your gift can help us to continue our work.

We are often asked how to add Second Chance into supporters wills. It is a simple addition to a will language that would say something like:

The language to be suggested for wills can be as simple as: “I give the sum of: ($_______.00) dollars to the Second Chance Animal Services, Inc., presently of 111 Young   Road, P.O. Box 136, East Brookfield, Massachusetts.”

or for property:  “I leave my real property located at ________ to the Second Chance Animal Services, Inc., presently of 111 Young Road, P.O. Box 136, East Brookfield, Massachusetts.”

Your support will change the lives of pets in need
