Leap-Year-Day Cat Captures Everyone’s Heart




Forever Friends Legacy Society


Richard Long proudly served in the U.S. Army during World War II in the Pacific Theater. He was present at the war’s end in Japan, giving aid to survivors after the bombing of Hiroshima. He was, indeed, a member of “The Greatest Generation.”

Mr. Long was an accomplished businessman. He was a kind and gentle man – respected and beloved by all who knew him.

We were honored and grateful that Richard included Northeast Animal Shelter as a beneficiary of his estate. His kindness will live on by benefiting the many pets we are able to care for through his bequest.

If, like Richard, you want to ensure that your love of animals continues in the future, we encourage you to include Northeast Animal Shelter in your estate plans. This is one of the easiest, most meaningful ways to perpetuate your support of the thousands of homeless pets we save each year.

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

For more information on how your legacy can live on through a bequest, please contact Laurie McCannon at the Shelter. Her telephone number is (978) 745-9888, extension 303. Or, you can reach Laurie by email at laurie.m@neas.org.
