Why leave a gift in your Will to the Scottish SPCA?
We understand writing a Will is very personal and friends and family will be front of mind. Every single gift matters to us no matter the size and our work would not be possible without legacies.
Even leaving 1% in your Will so those closest to you inherit 99% would make a massive difference to the Scottish SPCA. Whatever you decide to gift, your legacy will be one of helping us to continue to investigate cruelty, rescue wildlife, give animals a second chance, educate people and pioneer new research to improve the animal welfare world.
Provide funding for microchips for wild animals which will help to monitor success rates and influence release sites and future treatment and care.
Provide funding for dry suits for our frontline staff to carry out water rescues safely such as swans, seals and beavers.
Provide funding for a sensory garden at one of our centres. These spaces provide dogs with enrichment and socialisation which is especially important for dogs who have never known a home environment, such as those rescued from the low-welfare puppy trade.
How do I go about it?
We know that planning an estate is quite a thought. The presentation below will help guide you through planning your estate including what’s involved in writing a Will, Testamentary Trust plans, Powers of attorney, Family protection Trusts and Wills with discretion. You’ll also learn about the importance of legacy giving to the Scottish SPCA and our free Forever Care service.
Please remember your pets. If you find yourself unable to care for your pet through illness, a change in circumstance, or even if you pass away, you can be assured the Scottish SPCA will be there to help.
We’re there for animals in need and, through our free Forever care service, that includes those who outlive their owners.
