Animal Lovers: What will be your “Legacy of Compassion?”HSSPCA-Estate-Planning-Header-Logo-2016

August is National “Make a Will” Month, yet making a will is a topic so many people avoid for a slew of reasons; their health is good, nothing tragic or unexpected will happen to them at this time of their lives, they believe they don’t have much in assets to leave anyone, or it simply is a taboo topic they will deal with ‘someday’ in the distant future.  Unfortunately reasons can change in an instant.  Would you want your possessions to be decided by a court or the State to receive all your valuables?

A prepared will can provide peace of mind knowing everything that is important to them has been accounted for and left to those people or local charities that mean something significant to that individual” noted HS/SPCA volunteer Claudia Labbe.“ As many people know, I have been actively involved with our HS/SPCA and of my love of all animals.  This is why I made plans accordingly to help continue assisting them in the important work they do even after I have passed.  I have had the joy of witnessing how many lives are improved, both of animals and people, by the efforts of the HS/SPCA of Sumter and I want that to continue through my planned giving.”
