Planned Giving


Maybe your life has been enhanced by a pet you adopted from the SPCA or, even, a pet you had as a child. You can return the favor in many ways through planned giving. These gifts, that can be made through animal lovers’ estates, help the SPCA Serving Erie County continue to stay financially healthy and mean a great deal everyone at the SPCA. Knowing that we were thought of when someone was preparing their estate reminds us of the great impact that pets have on the richness in all of our lives.

 Planned Giving vehicles include:
