Gifts from estate plans are an important source of support for Northeast Animal Shelter. Since our founding, many generous animal-lovers have included Northeast Animal Shelter in their estate plans, thereby helping provide vital support so that NEAS has the necessary resources to carry out its mission.

By planning ahead, your generosity can continue to help animals in need for years to come. All it takes is adding a short, separate document to your will, called a Codicil. If you have life insurance, an IRA, or a 401K plan, it’s even simpler.  Just ask your insurance agent, IRA administrator, or 401K administrator for a beneficiary form and name Northeast Animal Shelter, Inc. as the beneficiary.  Be sure to include our address, 347 Highland Avenue, Salem, MA 01970, and our tax ID number, 04-2103597 

If you have already named the Shelter in your estate plans, please let us know so that we may thank you and welcome you into our Forever Friends Legacy Society.
