Why have a bag of peas in the freezer at Dane County Humane Society?
Christine Hayward had visited. A lover of rats, Christine brought this special treat to the shelter for her friends Bella, Luka and Mango, the DCHS classroom rats. During the visit, Christine shared how to teach them to spin, and joyfully allowed them to use her shoulders as a playground.
A member of the DCHS Directors’ Council giving society, Christine recently added DCHS to her legacy plans.
Legacy gifts in your will or other estate plans are powerful ways to support the care of DCHS furry and feathered friends for generations to come. And it costs nothing to give today.
Currently, Teddie is the love of Christine’s life. He is the 7th rat she has adopted from Dane County Humane Society. Home with Christine since August 2020, amazing Teddie plays hide and seek, walks, wrestles, spins and even knows his name.
Among the many DCHS supporters who have legacy plans in place, Christine wanted to make sure DCHS is a place of refuge, healing and new beginnings beyond her lifetime.
Christine plans to give annually as well, so animals are able to receive funding now and in the future.
“I think both lifetime and legacy gifting are important topics that many in the younger generations are starting to consider. Giving to DCHS is an important piece of my life, and I am thankful I’m able to help the animals, and shelter, each year.”
DCHS is grateful to Christine and many others who have included DCHS in their estate plans.
Might you help DCHS, as part of it’s 100th year celebration, reach its goal of 100 new Legacy Society supporters?
If you have already included DCHS in your plans, please let us know so we can thank you.
