Planned Giving

Powerful and thoughtful gifts

The Beauty of a Bequest

Bequests are powerful and thoughtful gifts that can express your legacy. The choice to make, alter, or remove a bequest stays with you as you navigate financial planning decisions and your future.

What will your legacy be? What will your story be?

Where there is a will, there is a way! Leaving a bequest to Sarge’s supports our mission far into the future. You can make a difference in the lives of Haywood County dogs and cats when estate planning by considering leaving a portion of your estate to Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation.
