The SPCA of Northern Nevada Legacy Society
The Legacy Society was created to honor the special people who have chosen to support the SPCA of Northern Nevada with a planned gift. Legacy Society members are committed to saving and improving the lives of animals for many years to come, and for that we are profoundly grateful.
Planned gifts are critical in building a long-term capacity to rescue homeless animals and place them in homes where they can finally be loved and appreciated. Planned gifts are also one of the most effective ways to ensure that your generous and caring spirit continues to have a positive impact long into the future.
For more information on planned giving, please contact Sean Farnan- Development Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or (775) 324-7773 x 204.

“We wish that every dog and cat could have the same type of loving and forever home that our dogs enjoy.”
“We are among those who love and care about animals, and that’s why we support the SPCA of Northern Nevada. We have two Yorkies and there is almost nothing we would not do for them. We wish that every dog and cat could have the same type of loving and forever home that our dogs enjoy. What that in mind, we became SPCA Legacy Society members. Through the wonderful work of the SPCA, we will be able to continue to do some good after we are gone. We also take comfort in knowing that the SPCA will find a loving home for any animals that we might have when this donation time comes.”

Bill Harrigan: A Legacy of Support
For 12 years William A. “Bill” Harrigan was a generous supporter and friend of the SPCA of Northern Nevada.
Born in Gardnerville, Nevada, Harrigan attended Reno schools where he excelled in academics and athletics. He began his college education at the University of Nevada, Reno and when World War II began, he joined the U.S. Army Air Corps where he served with a photo reconnaissance squadron in Northern Africa, Italy, and France.
After the war, he returned to the University and graduated in 1948. His distinguished mining career took him all over the western United States, after which he joined Sierra Pacific Power Company as an engineer, retiring after 22 years. He then began his career as a consulting engineer developing groundwater sources throughout northern Nevada.
Harrigan passed away December 8th, 2014. As a SPCA Legacy Society member, he generously remembered the homeless animals of northern Nevada in his estate plans. Without wonderful supporters like Bill, it would be difficult for the SPCA to continue our life-saving work.
