Support Blessed Bonds

Estate & Planned Giving

Animals Deserving of Proper Treatment (A.D.O.P.T.) was founded in 1989 by a group of generous volunteers determined to find homes for animals in need.  Over the decades, our objective has remained the same:  to place animals into permanent, caring homes and advance the humane treatment of animals through education.
We are a private, “no-kill”, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and receive no funding from the government.  Your bequest, a gift from the heart, guarantees that our life-saving work continues.  Planned gifts are an important source of support in building a sound future for the organization.

Although bequests are the simplest and most popular form of planned gifts, your gift can consist of almost anything — money, bank accounts, life insurance policies, securities, works of art or real estate.
