Leave Your Legacy

Bob and Trish Stanton have been closely involved with PAWS for over 23 years. They decided to make a planned gift by designating PAWS as a beneficiary in their will, thus becoming members of our Visionary League.

Trish recently told us that she and Bob decided to do this because they "have watched PAWS grow and strengthen for over two decades, caring and protecting animals with a fabulous staff and volunteers. We have been blessed to live with ‘kids' from PAWS for many years and feel honored to be a small part of all the good that PAWS does."

In addition to naming PAWS in your will, there are other types of planned gifts to consider:

  • Naming PAWS as a recipient of a life insurance policy
  • Designating the remainder interest in personal residence
  • Giving long-term appreciated assets

Be sure to consult with your attorney or your estate planner before you decide on what type of gift you make to charity. In addition, Aimee Sheridan, PAWS Development and Community Relations Director, can also provide information about becoming a member of PAWS' Visionary League. Contact Aimee at or 425.412.4023.
