Bequests for the Benefit of Animals
Many people who support Animal Rights/Welfare during their lifetimes want to continue that support after their deaths through their wills. All too often their intentions are not realized. There is an extremely serious problem of inter vivos (during lifetime) and testamentary (in a will) gifts for the benefit of animals which either fail altogether or are substantially diminished. Unfortunately, recent years have provided too many examples of this phenomenon, with the cost to animals measured in the tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars.
