Planned Giving


For individuals, families and organizations who are looking to leave a legacy of Love, German Shepherd Rescue of OC’s Planned Giving options offer a wide variety of opportunities.  We look forward to a day when there are no animals in need of rescue, but in the meantime, we take our responsibility as animal stewards very seriously.  Your compassion and generosity will have a lasting impact for dogs in crisis by making it possible for us to continue our mission in perpetuity.

Thoughtful Estate Planning may also reduce the amount of your taxable estate, which could increase the impact that your gift will make. Our Planned Giving team can help you realize your goals of leaving a lasting impact that will benefit animals. We are able accept gifts in any of the following forms:

  • Wills and Bequests
  • Real Estate Donations
  • Stocks / Bonds Donations
  • Annuities / IRAs
  • As a beneficiary of your Retirement Assets
  • As a beneficiary of your Life Insurance Assets
  • Artwork
  • Vehicles
