Speak with your attorney about what would be the best way for you personally to help Belmont County Animal Rescue League.
Some options include:
Designating a specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate.

What about your pet?
Not all families are in a position to take on the care of a pet after a loved one passes away. Leaving your best friend (or friends) to Belmont County Animal Rescue League provides the opportunity for them to be rehomed where they can be treated as beloved companions. When speaking with your legal counsel about adding this into your estate planning we recommend language along these lines:
I give my [cat, dog, etc.], and any other animals, which I may own at the time of my death, to Belmont County Animal Rescue League or surviving agency (EIN 51-0138069). If my [cat, dog, etc.], passes a temperament test and is not suffering from a terminal illness, I request Belmont County Animal Rescue League staff, volunteers and/or fosters seek to rehome them in the best possible home where they will be treated as beloved companion animals.
I direct my Executor to give [$_] from my estate to Belmont County Animal Rescue League upon their placement into their new home or other outcome based on temperament or health.
