Other ways you can help us out
- Using our shopping links results in
us getting a percentage of every purchase you make. We encourage you
to access sites such as Petopia or Petsmart or Pets.com using our website
as your entry point.
- Become a kitty sponsor.
We have many cats in need of sponsorship.
- Remember us in your yearly charitable gift giving. If
your company has a matching gifts program, please use it.
- Remember us in your wills.
- Gifts of Appreciated Stock allow you to make a larger contribution to the shelter because there are
tax savings in giving stock that has increased in value vs. selling the
stock, paying taxes, and giving the resulting money.
Here's an example:
Buy stock at $2000, stock increases in value to
- If you sell the stock, you owe capital gains tax on $1000, which might
be $200 or more. So you have a net of $2800 to give the shelter and can
claim a tax deduction for $2800.
- If you make a gift of appreciated stock, you owe no capital gains
tax, the shelter gets $3000 in stock which it can immediately sell and it
pays no tax, and you can claim a tax deduction of $3000.
- Anyone interested in doing this should call the shelter for the
information you need to give your broker about how to transfer the stock
to the shelter.
