GHHS is no-kill animal shelter in Huntsville, Alabama.

With numbers rising and more of us popping up positive, protocols are going to be changed temporarily. Effective January 14, 2022, all staff and volunteers will be required to wear a mask at all times. We will continue to encourage masks and hand sanitizer for our guests. We will have signs posted encouraging to wear a mask and it’s recommended.

At the shelter we will limit one family at a time in the cat room, dog kennels, and waiting areas. This is going to be very similar to our past experience with limiting traffic within the shelter. If numbers continue to rise and places shut down, we will only allow approved applicants in the shelter.

We need everyone healthy and safe to “Unleash Possibilities” in 2022.

Planned Giving

Through planned giving, you can leave a legacy to support animal rescue at GHHS.

In addition to money you give to GHHS during the year, you may consider planned legacy giving options. Planned giving is a wonderful way to make meaningful gifts while enjoying tax benefits that can also help enhance your future financial well-being.

As the donor, choosing what gift(s) is right for you is just as important as making the gift. There are many giving options, including naming GHHS as the beneficiary or co-beneficiary in your will, donating appreciated assets (stock, bonds, mutual funds, etc.)or a Life Estate, naming GHHS as a beneficiary in your IRA and/or 401(k) and gifts of life insurance an annuity or charitable remainder trust. Ultimately the best plan for you will balance what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests in your overall estate and other financial plans.

You may contact the CEO for The Greater Huntsville Humane Society to discuss your ideas for planned giving. But, with all types of Planned Gifts you should always consult your personal tax advisor or legal counsel.
