The Estate of Susan Strong recently made a large donation to care for the animals at the Everett Animal Shelter.

The Everett Animal Shelter has received a gift of $61,563.76 after the passing of a woman who had a real love for animals.

The Everett City Council recently accepted the gift left by the estate of Susan Strong. Here’s what was noted by Ms. Strong’s niece in the briefing documents.

“Sue had a real soft spot for animals. She always adopted her pets and made sure they were loved and cared for. She wanted to leave her money to go to good causes and the animals were first on her list. She was a kind, funny and loyal woman and had a heart of gold. We know that her donation will be making her smile down upon all the good it will do.”

For years the Everett Animal Shelter has offered a legacy gift program where people are able to make a bequest or beneficiary designation for the shelter.

The City says this donation will go to Fund 151 (Fund for Animals) which is a cumulative reserve fund that benefits the animals and will help pay for veterinary care and other services to directly help animals at the Everett Animal Shelter.

According to the Everett Animal Shelter webpage you can donate cash and/or securities through your will by naming Everett Animal Shelter as your choice of beneficiary as well as donating life insurance and/or retirement plans (IRAs and 401Ks) by designating Everett Animal Shelter as the beneficiary.

There are multiple rules to follow, and your best advice is to consult your lawyer or a financial planner.
