Legacy Gifts 

Do you want to find a way to make a difference, create a legacy, and ensure your lasting impact on the welfare of animals in Athens County? Make a planned gift by including the Athens County Humane Society in your will.

A planned gift can help us build a permanent resource base to do our work (and do more of it) for a generation or more to come. Your lasting impact can include allowing us to:

• Ensure low cost spay/neuter for residents of Athens County who can’t afford full-service veterinary care.

• Care for sick and injured animals to give them a chance at a happy life in loving homes.

• Care for animals in our adoption program so that they can find furr-ever homes.

• Expand our trap-neuter-return program to manage the county’s feral cat population – hopefully one day the over-population of stray cats will be a thing of the past in Athens County.

• Employ the county’s Humane Agent to ensure that neglected and abused animals are rescued from these circumstances and that bad actors are prosecuted.


We’d be grateful if you’d consider naming ACHS as a beneficiary in your will. A number of ACHS supporters have already done it. It’s not a difficult thing to do. We’re happy to direct you to expert, independent resources that can help you. As always, thank you so much for your support!
