If you have a life insurance policy that is no longer required, transferring the policy to the Des Moines County Humane Society may provide benefits to both Des Moines County Humane Society and the donor. The Trust would ultimately collect the policy value and the donor may be entitled to an income tax deduction in the amount of the policy’s value. The donor should consult with their tax advisor.
The donor may list The Trust as a beneficiary in their will. The distribution of the estate is then made at the donor’s death.
Every dollar you donate to the Des Moines County Humane Society helps ensure we can provide the necessary care for any animal in need of re-homing and a second chance at loving. We are a 501(c) (3) organization so all monetary donations are tax deductible to the extent that IRS allows.
For every dollar donated, 93 cents go towards the cost of care for the pets we have in foster homes nationwide. From the basics like vaccinations and medications, to specialty surgery for those like Lucy, who came to us as a stray with a damaged leg that required removal. The remaining 7 cents of every dollar goes towards generating future funding needs.
Des Moines County Humane Society is a nationwide community of supporters and volunteers passionate about making a difference to the lives of animals in need and keeping them out of harm’s way. The animals come to us for various reasons from strays and shelters, to changes in their owner’s life that may include the death of the owner.
Whatever the reason, we take the animals in with dignity for those surrendering them and without vindication. After all, It’s All About the animals.
