As you do your estate planning, please consider remembering HTAT in your will.
Your gift will leave behind a wonderful legacy and ensure that HTAT can continue our life-saving programs. It’s easy to set up, and is a wonderful way to leave behind a legacy of caring – a legacy which will allow us to help cats in need for many years to come.
Now, more than ever, planned giving is essential to the financial health of the HTAT, and we hope that we can count on your help.
