Planned Giving

Legacy Gifting

A bequest (legacy gift) to Sit With Me Shelter Dog Rescue will ensure a life goes on, far from homelessness, illness and starvation.

There are many options for Planned Giving – a method of bequeathing through your will – that can provide you with tax benefits while you help provide a sanctuary and a new home for an animal in need. To encourage charitable giving, the Canada Revenue Agency exempts capital gains taxes for people bequeathing donations to registered charities like us. It’s relatively easy, you only need to include Sit With Me Shelter Dog Rescue in your will.

If you are considering including Sit With Me in your will, please contact us to discuss your options. We would be honoured to help you with your planned giving.
