Business Partners for Pets

The Business Partners for Pets Program is an opportunity for the business community to join forces with an established, respected organization in the fight for positive change in animal welfare.  Through partnership and sponsorship, we can work together to advance the mission of ensuring every animal is lovingly cared for until they find their permanent forever home.  Details on the program can be found here

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.
