Estate and Planned Giving

Why Planned Gifts Matter…

Including AAUPR in your will, trust, or other estate plans offers a wonderful way to support a charity that you love, and helps to ensure that AAUPR’s mission to “Rescue One Until There are None” can continue.

Thanks to the generosity of caring donors around the world, Angels Among Us Pet Rescue (AAUPR) has saved more than 13,000 dogs and cats from high-kill shelters throughout the greater-Atlanta area. In addition to the rescue of animals from urgent scenarios, AAUPR pays all vetting, training and rehabilitation costs necessary to help these animals while in volunteer foster homes. Our goal is restore these rescued pets to complete physical and emotional wellness for impending adoption in a forever home that will be a loving and lasting experience.

Angels Among Us Pet Rescue uses the services of over 50 Veterinarians across the greater-Atlanta area. All of our rescued pets go through basic veterinary neuter and vaccination services. But the abundance of these rescued animals require extensive and costly medical treatments. The average cost to rescue a pet is over $400. This is because AAUPR will rescue the seriously injured, diseased and impaired animals that are closest to being euthanized in a shelter.

Angels Among Us Pet Rescue strives to educate the public on the importance of neutering, proper care and treatment of animals. But until the shelter pet population is reduced, our rescue efforts will continue! Each day there are hundreds of animals in Georgia shelters that will lose their life. Your financial support helps us reverse that trend!

A distinguished “Halo Circle” has been established to recognize donors whose planned gifts help to ensure a healthy financial future for our organization and, in turn, enable us to rescue and care for more animals.
