Legacy Circle & Ensuring Your Pet Is Protected

Join the Legacy Circle

One of the most important and generous ways you can help Yuma's homeless pets is through planned giving. We have created the Legacy Circle in order to recognize those thoughtful persons who ensure the future of our organization...and assist thousands of animals in need.

Legacy Circle members are those who honor HSOY in one or more of the following ways:

  • Naming us as a beneficiary in a will or living trust.
  • Making a gift of cash or appreciated securities to establish a charitable gift annuity.
  • Creating a charitable remainder trust.
  • Naming us as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account.

We hope you will consider adding your name to our Legacy Circle. As a legacy donor, you will be listed on our website and in upcoming issues of our Paw Prints newsletter (unless you wish to remain anonymous).

To include us in your will or estate plan, you must specify our legal name, street address, and federal tax identification number.

Perhaps you have already included us in your will, living, or charitable remainder trust? Please let us know. We'd love to acknowledge your support and dedication!

Our legal name & street address:
Humane Society of Yuma, Inc.
4050 S Avenue 4 ½ E
Yuma, AZ 85365

Federal Tax Identification Number : 86-6053617

Success Stories


My name is Sammy. My mom and dad rescued me from HSOY in July of 2010 when I was only 3 months old. My mom taught me how to nod my head yes for a cookie and play pattycake and my dad has taught me lots of tricks too. They tell me all the time that I am such a good boy and that makes me happy. I'm so glad they chose me. Thank you HSOY for taking care of me until my mom and dad could bring me home.
