Wills, Bequests, and Estate Gifts


There is no greater gift than one that creates a legacy, especially for homeless animals. Making a gift to Friends of Strays through your will, trust or retirement plan ensures that we can continue our work of caring and finding loving families for the homeless and abandoned dogs and cats in St. Petersburg and Pinellas County for years to come.

Creating a legacy for the animals gives you the personal satisfaction of knowing you’re making a huge difference for the abandoned and neglected pets in our community. By planning ahead, your gift to Friends of Strays can also help you meet your personal and financial goals.

By including Friends Strays as a beneficiary of your will, trust, retirement or insurance policy you'll enjoy the benefits of membership to the
Jean Bomonti Founders Society and our Pet Guardianship program.

Regardless of the type of legacy you want to make, here is the basic information you will need:
