FREEWILL: Your Will, Their Future


Dear Shelter Family,

August is National Make-A-Will Month, and as the saying goes, “where there’s a will, there’s a way.” By creating your will this month, you are not just joining Humane Society of Westchester supporters in creating an essential document — you are making a way to protect your loved ones, your pets, and the future of stray, lost, abandoned, injured and abused animals.

In just 20 minutes, you can create your own will with the help of our partner, FreeWill. It’s completely free in thanks for your support of the Humane Society of Westchester! Join thousands who are making a will this month to: 

  • Dictate your vision for the future and your assets
  • Show your loved ones and pets just how much you care about them
  • Create a lasting impact on future stray, lost, abandoned, injured, and abused animals waiting for their forever homes!

You’ll get lifetime access to make updates and changes to your plan at no cost when you use this service today. And, if you choose to include a gift to the Humane Society of Westchester, we are so grateful for your help in creating a community where every animal is valued, loved, and provided with the care they deserve.  By committing just 5-10% of their estate to give animals a second chance at a happy, healthy life, many donors choose to build an incredibly impactful legacy with us while ensuring their loved ones and pets are also taken care of.

With Appreciation,

John N. Feldtmose, President

Humane Society of Westchester

P.S. Another important part of planning your estate is naming beneficiaries for assets that are not covered by your will. You can even name the Humane Society of Westchester as a beneficiary for assets like an IRA, 401(k), or life insurance policy to make a way for animal welfare for years to come.
