A bequest to Summit County Animal Control and Shelter gives you the opportunity to ensure that our essential programs and indispensable work for the animals will continue for years to come. Feel free to use the Sample Bequest Language.
Monetary donations are applied to one of the following areas:
General Donation Fund: This funds medical treatments, emergency preparedness, or any other things that support our mission of providing the animals in our care with a secure, shelter environment and offering them the opportunity to be adopted.
Spay/Neuter Fund: This supplements our budget so that all animals that are adopted from the Shelter can be spayed or neutered.
Humane Education: Our staff and volunteers who run this program are very committed to offering the best presentations to K-12 kids in areas of pet responsibility.

Our organization is set up to benefit from the Hale Pet Door program. Hale Pet Door manufactures high-end pet doors and supports rescues. If you are considering installing a pet door in your home, check them out at www.halepetdoor.com. Hale Pet Doors can go through walls, doors, screens, French doors, windows units and sliding glass doors. Customers who have adopted a pet from a legitimate rescue organization or shelter and who purchase one of their pet doors will receive 10 percent off the cost of the door. Hale will also send a check for that same amount to the rescue organization. It is their way of saying “thank you for opting to adopt and thereby save a life.”
Summit County uses a third-party payment processor through the Colorado State Internet Portal Authority to process online donations.
This processor charges a fee to the user, the amount of which depends on the method of payment:
- Credit Card: Fee is based on a percentage of the amount paid, plus a flat fee of $0.75.
- eCheck: Flat fee of $1, independent of the amount paid.
Summit County does not have any control over these fees, nor do we receive any portion of them. Fee information listed above may change without our knowledge.
