Planned Giving & Memorial Gifts

Planned Giving

You can be an integral part of our ongoing commitment to the humane welfare of animals by including a charitable gift in your overall estate and financial plans.

Here are some ways you can help:

  • Naming us as a beneficiary in a will or living trust
  • Making a gift of cash or appreciated securities to establish a charitable gift annuity
  • Naming us as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account
  • Creating a charitable remainder trust
Engraved Bricks

There are many ways to honor someone, and an engraved brick is a distinguished way to celebrate a special occasion or mark the passing of a loved one. The personalized bricks that border the public walkway around the HSBH shelter entrance provide a wonderful opportunity for our community members to honor their family members, friends, and animal companions.

Memorial bricks are available for $100 each, and are a tax-deductible donation.

Kennel Sponsors

NOTICE: 9/4/2019
In November the Humane Society of the Black Hills will be replacing the current dog kennels with newer, plexiglass models and will on longer offer individual kennel sponsorships. We will introduce a new sponsor opportunity for kennels very soon! Thank you!

This program allows individuals and businesses to sponsor a kennel for one year in order to offset the cost of caring for the animals. In exchange, your name or your business name and message will appear on a plaque on an adopt floor kennel for one year.

This is also a great gift for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, holidays and more to honor family or friends.
