More than half of the RSPCA’s work is funded by kind legacy donations.

These gifts in Wills are vital in continuing to help animals in need and we’re incredibly grateful to our supporters who decide to leave a gift to us.

Last year, the RSPCA rescued more than 103,000 animals and a lot of this work would not be possible without legacies.

This week (9-15 September) is the 10th Remember a Charity in Your Will Week which sees charities coming together to raise awareness about the importance of leaving a gift in your Will to help good causes people really care about.

We are a nation of animal lovers and leaving a gift in your Will is an opportunity to have a lasting impact on animal welfare and help the RSPCA continue helping animals in need.

Last year, the RSPCA rescued more than 6,000 dogs like Bronx and more than 22,000 cats.

In 2018, our animal centres and branches gave 40,738 animals a second chance of a new home and the four wildlife centres took in 18,000 animals which is around two every hour. Our scope is huge and none of this would be possible without our generous supporters.

Anything you can give is greatly appreciated and helps the thousands of pets we save each year from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment, and the thousands of wild animals we rescue and release back into the wild.

Kind regards,

Jessica Taylor Bayliss, Head of Legacy Marketing at the RSPCA
