Make a Bequest to CVA and help ensure the legal protection of animals!


When you make a bequest to Connecticut Votes for Animals (CVA), you join like-minded people who care deeply about the safety and protection of domestic, farmed and wild animals. CVA is the only organization in Connecticut whose mission is to work for effective and humane laws for animals.

By making a bequest you demonstrate your appreciation of CVA’s fight to assist police, animal control officers, and caring individuals to protect animals by rules of law. The bills we work for make a difference. Your gift is your legacy to the animals!

To make your bequest to CVA, simply give the following language to your attorney for inclusion in your will or trust. You might also consider naming CVA as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy or IRA.  Download a printable document of this information and suggested language.


We look forward to welcoming you to the Legacy Society of CVA!
