Wills & Legacies

Supporting animal charities

If you love animals like we do, why not leave a gift in your Will, to help animals in need of support.

Animal Rescue Foundation has raised some £1.1 million – enabling about £70,000 a year to be devoted as vital funds for our smaller animal charity clients – and thus saving the lives of many animals under threat, to help them continue their work of saving thousands of cats, dogs, ponies and other trusting animals who have either been abandoned or rescued from cruel and dreadful conditions.

Some of our donations come from gifts included in people’s Wills. If you love animals like we do, please consider remembering Animal Rescue Foundation in your Will, ensuring this good, charitable work continues.

You can make a difference

Leaving a gift in your Will, significantly helps smaller local animal charities

Leaving a gift in your Will to Animal Rescue Foundation, will mean continued support for the smaller local animal charities that we fund.

Leaving a gift in your Will to Animal Rescue Foundation is a lovely way to honour your love of animals and leave a lasting legacy for animals giving them the chance of receiving the support they need. Gifts in Wills are vital to all areas of our work, so any gift you give, however small, will make a big difference to the animals in local animal charities, supported by Animal Rescue Foundation.

By remembering Animal Rescue Foundation in your Will, you’ll ensure that we can continue to support local animal rescue centres and provide them with greatly needed funds, that they desperately need to carry on their good work.

    Our success stories

    Animal rescue centres we’ve helped say…

    When Royston Animal Welfare needed funds to cover the cost of running cat and dog pens they asked the Animal Rescue Foundation for help – and were very pleased to receive a total of £10,500 over two years.

    Royston Animal Welfare

    We received £2,000 – a fab donation. This went a long way to cover the neutering costs of a couple of large feral cat colonies we were trapping and getting in at the time. Obviously vet bills are our biggest expense, so this was a great help to us.

    Suffolk Animal Rescue

    The charity was delighted to receive £4,000 from the Animal Rescue Foundation in April 2013 towards establishing a dedicated area for dogs in the Isolation Unit to get free running exercise and fresh air, and reduce any anxiety of being kennel bound while waiting for health clearance.
