DONATE To Saving Grace
Why DONATE To Saving Grace
Saving Grace is Douglas County’s only animal shelter, providing shelter, food and medical care to thousands of animals each year. Beyond the basics, each animal receives compassionate care from our staff and volunteers while they wait to be reunited with their families or to find a new home. Warm blankets, toys and treats, time spent socializing with caring people; all are a part of the animals’ experience at Saving Grace.
We need your help to provide for the daily care and feeding of the animals who need us. You may not realize that our contract with the county provides only 16% of our operating budget. Shelter fees cover another 25%, and the balance is raised through donations, grants and fundraising efforts.
Your donation to Saving Grace stays in the community to help animals in need.
Saving Grace is extremely efficient, spending only 10% of operating expense on administration and fundraising. We understand that the animals' needs come first and make sure your donations provide maximum care for the animals you care about.
Will you help? The animals are counting on us!

Planned Giving / Estate Planning
Making a planned gift to Saving Grace is a meaningful way to carry forward your compassion and concern for animals. We would be glad to discuss any planned giving option with you - in confidence and without obligation.
Bequests are a great way to support a beloved organization. Many people would like to help but feel they cannot afford to make such a gift today. A bequest by will is a unique way to ensure that our work will continue into the future. Donors can specify a dollar amount or a percentage of assets in their will, designating a particular program at Saving Grace or leaving the gift to be used where it is needed most at the discretion of our Board of Directors.
Beneficiary designations are another easy way to give future gifts. Simply name Saving Grace, Inc.
(Tax ID 93-1318052) as the beneficiary of the account. This can be done for retirement accounts, bank accounts and life insurance policies.
If you name Saving Grace as a beneficiary of your will or account, please let us know so that we can express our appreciation for your thoughtfulness. If you would like assistance or need additional information, please contact Megan at ext. 120 or email@example.com.

Not able to adopt a new kitty? Looking for an easy way to support the kitties awaiting forever homes at our shelter? Imperial Cat will ship a case of 20 Adopt-a-Cat Scratchers to Saving Grace for only $25 with free shipping!
The shelter environment can be extremely stressful to cats! Scratching helps alleviate stress and boredom, but it also allows the cat to stretch its muscles, keep its claws honed and healthy, and marks its territory both visually and through scent -- all basic instinctual needs.
