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 it's 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.

In Memoriam Donations
Thank you so much for thinking of HTAT at your time of loss. We deeply appreciate your generosity and will do everything we can to make sure the memorial donation process is as simple as possible.
How can I make a memorial donation?
When making arrangements, please include the following note in the obituary: “In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in [name]’s memory be made to the Here Today Adopted Tomorrow Animal Sanctuary, P.O. Box 557, Brimfield, MA 01010.”
You can also make an individual memorial donation directly:
Online via our giving page. Simply check the box that says "Dedicate my donation in honor or in memory of someone" and fill out the form that follows.
By mail. You can mail a check to P.O. Box 557, Brimfield, MA 01010, and designate the memorial donation in the memo field.
If you include us in the obituary and you would like a report of the donations made in your loved one's memory, simply contact us and be ready with your email or mailing address. We usually send this report a few weeks after the services, but we are glad to provide it sooner if needed.
When we receive a memorial donation, we will send a thank you note and tax receipt to the donor, and note that the donation was made in memory of the deceased.
If you have any questions or wish to receive information about donations made, please contact Rachael Max, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our office at 413-324-8224.
