How to Help

More than 6.5 million animals are surrendered to shelters each year. Our goal is to end senior pet abandonment and premature euthanization.  Since 2018, we’ve directly helped over 2,082 senior pets through our pet care packages initiative and our rehoming project. More than 97% of your donation goes directly to our senior pet programs and services. With your gift, we can change the trajectory for unwanted senior pets.

Donate Crypto

Reduced capital gains taxes — donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes.

Enhanced security — cryptocurrencies use cryptography and blockchain technologies to encrypt, secure, and verify transactions and proof of ownership.

Protected privacy — cryptocurrencies systems are not tied to a central authority, thereby better protecting user privacy and allowing a degree of anonymity.

Increased efficiency — unlike traditional transaction methods, which can take days to process, the donation of cryptocurrency can process in only minutes.

A Gift in Your Will – Planned Gifts

A gift in your will or living trust extends your protection of at risk senior pets —and often allows you to make an even bigger impact than you ever thought possible. Whether you give a set amount or a percentage of your estate, you can have an extraordinary, positive impact on our senior pets who are at risk for abandonment or unnecessary euthanization.

Some planned gifts can help you lower your taxable income now. By planning ahead now, you can leave a lasting legacy in the future. Here are some ways to plan for the future.

Qualified retirement plan

Bequest

Donate Appreciated Securities Stocks, Bonds Etc.

If you’re looking for a tax-smart way to meet the needs of both people and senior animals, consider a gift of appreciated securities. When you give appreciated stock, mutual funds, or bonds that you’ve owned for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction when you itemize.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to the Elderly Pet Organization and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

If you include the Elderly Pet Organization in your plans, please use our legal name and federal tax ID.

We simply cannot thank you enough for visiting our website and for your consideration to help Elderly Pets. We cannot do what we do without your support and we truly appreciate you! Thank you!!!
