Memorials & Honorariums
Memorial: A meaningful gift to remember a loved one…
While the experience of losing a pet or a person you love is never easy, many people find comfort in giving donations to causes that will assist others during difficult times. Here, at the ARL, we’re deeply touched that you’re considering giving a gift to leave a lasting legacy in your dear one’s memory. The memorial contributions we receive each year is simply humbling: Nearly 150 families each year ask that their friends and family consider donating sympathetic gifts to the animals in our care in lieu of flowers. These donations allow us to provide medical and emergency care, spay and neuter services, protective vaccines, nutritious food and a comfortable and safe place to sleep for thousands of animals we see each and every year.
Although the services noted above are just some of many ways your gift could be used, you may also direct your donation to a specific cause that you feel would honor your loved one the most. Please consider reaching out to us to learn of other opportunities in which we can best honor your loved one. We would be happy to offer you a tour of our facility in order to enhance your understanding of who we are, what services we provide and how your donations will enable our ability to continue providing these services.
If you are the surviving family member of a loved one that has passed and have chosen to support the ARL in lieu of flowers, please notify us ASAP. Notifications of who has donated will be sent to the family each Monday, provided we have your contact information.
Honorarium: A meaningful gift anytime…
Whether recognizing a person or a pet going through a difficult time, or celebrating a special achievement, birthday, holiday, anniversary or other occasion, a gift given in honor of someone offers them a unique way to let them know how much you care. Your donation today recognizes this special time by giving towards the care of thousands of animals that we intake each year, offering them emergency and routine care, such as medicine, vaccines, food, shelter, training and love by our attentive staff while we offer them a chance to be reunited with their grateful owners or find them a new family to love.
Your generosity today will be acknowledged by a special notification card, directed to your loved one to let them know of your thoughtfulness and how their struggles or triumphs inspired you to give on their behalf. In order for us to send them, please ensure that you include the recipient’s name and address in the special comments section of the donation form below.
