Lori Shepherd with Arizona Humane Society and Tiffany House with Gift Planning Institute
The Mission of Arizona Humane Society is to save the most vulnerable animals and enrich the lives of pets and people.
Their lifesaving programs, including the Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital, Mutternity Suites, Kitten Nursery, Bottle Baby Kitten ICU and Parvo Puppy ICU save the lives of pets routinely euthanized in shelters. AHS’ comprehensive medical, behavioral rehabilitation, surrender intervention and spay/neuter initiatives have helped them save an additional 80,000 lives over the last five years and become a safety net for the Valley’s most vulnerable pets.
As a modern open admissions shelter, the Arizona Humane Society sees cases daily that are beyond the scope of imagination – abuse, neglect, abandonment. Their Ethical No-Kill Philosophy ensures that they never euthanize a pet for space or length of time. And although they can not save them all, there is not a day that goes by where they don’t try.
Lori Shepherd is the Planned Giving Manager for Arizona Humane Society. In that role, she helps connect donors interested in planned giving with the many ways that they can join Arizona Humane Society’s Legacy Circle; such as including AHS in their will or trust, creating charitable remainder trusts, or naming AHS as a beneficiary to an IRA or life insurance policy.
Another exciting program at AHS that Lori loves to share with donors is their Continuing Care Program. This program is a special benefit provided to Legacy Circle members. Pets who are enrolled in the program and have owners who predecease them are placed with loving forever families who have been carefully selected by AHS staff.
Lori loves connecting people with pets and their passion for animal welfare.
