Honorariums, Memorials and Bequests


You can support HSNEI through honorariums for someone special who may be having a special day (wedding, birthday, etc.) or memorials for someone who has passed. Both are great ways to honor people or companion animals and support HSNEI's foster animals at the same time! Simply note on your donation who the contribution is to honor. All such contributions will be noted in our monthly newsletter. Donations can be made online using the Paypal link below, or by mailing payment to 2345 Millennium Road, Decorah, IA 52101. All donations are tax deductible.


Bequests: Forever Helping Us Help Them


Interested in helping HSNEI care for animals for years to come? A simple way to ensure we can continue helping animals is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.


By including a bequest to HSNEI in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue to celebrate animals and confront cruelty for years to come. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deductible.


As an animal lover and advocate, you can feel confident knowing that HSNEI will care for, protect, and love the animals within our community.  By leaving a legacy gift to HSNEI, your generosity will provide for the future of our organization - and for thousands of homeless animals.
