The MCPAWS Legacy Society

Leave a lasting legacy by including MCPAWS in your will or living trust. This allows you to make a profound and lasting impact on our future sustainability. It also ensures that your generosity continues to help us provide shelter and care for abandoned, surrendered, neglected and lost animals even after you are gone.

When naming MCPAWS in your will, you may leave a specific dollar amount, a set percentage of your estate, or a particular property. You can also name the shelter as the beneficiary of your retirement plan, life insurance policy, bank account, mutual fund, charitable remainder trust, or charitable lead trust. Each of these options may help you reduce your estate taxes.

With permission, members of the MCPAWS Legacy Society will be recognized on the Legacy Society Wall at the shelter, as well as in our annual report. Help fund our future, and be remembered for your kindness.

When considering a planned gift, we encourage you to consult with your financial or legal advisor as you consider your options. MCPAWS’ Federal Tax ID is 82-0503942.

Please let us know if you have included MCPAWS Regional Animal Shelter in your estate planning so we can thank and recognize you. You can email Kattie Kingsley at or call 208.634.3647.



Remembering MCPAWS in your estate planning helps ensure a brighter future for abandoned, neglected, surrendered and lost animals. Please consider naming the MCPAWS Regional Animal Shelter as a beneficiary in your will, life insurance policy, living trust, charitable trust or pension plan.

Endowment gifts provide a continual income stream for the Shelter and are held in perpetuity. This means that the gift is invested, and only a portion of its average annual earnings is used for our operations. The remaining investment continues to grow.

In 2007, Louise Barney set up the “Friends of MCPAWS” designated fund with the Idaho Community Foundation.  After moving to Boise in 2009, Barney decided to sell her McCall home, allowing her to add to her fund, and give an additional donation to MCPAWS.

Barney was one of the women affectionately known as the “MCPAWS Founding Mothers.” As she once noted, “This started from seven women who looked at the old cinder block unheated dog pound and decided to take it over and do something.” Consider doing something for MCPAWS today.
