What is legacy giving?

Legacy giving is a way for you to leave a lasting legacy in your community by helping to save lives once you’re gone.


“I support OK Humane now and in my estate because this organization is making a huge ongoing impact for animals in Oklahoma. I know that the support I give to the organization goes to help local life-saving efforts and improves the overall quality of life in Oklahoma City. Becoming a Legacy Society Member is an honor and the right choice for me.”

– Sheryl Colton, a proud donor of OK Humane
