Leaving a gift in your Will
Leaving a gift in your Will means you can be an animal rescuer even after you’ve gone.
Any gift, large or small, makes a difference.
Sorting your affairs is a very personal matter, and your priority will be your family and close friends. Without gifts in Wills from animal lovers like you, we simply could not fund our vital work. In fact, gifts in Wills fund the running of our nine rescue and rehoming centres and National Wildlife Rescue Centre in a typical year, meaning almost 20,000 animals benefit from them.
By leaving a gift in your Will to the Scottish SPCA, your love for animals will live on and you will continue to make a massive difference in their lives. Whatever you decide to gift, your legacy will be one to be proud of. You will empower us to continue to investigate cruelty, improve animal welfare in Scotland and give thousands of companion, wild and farm animals a second chance.
How to arrange your Will
Sorting out your affairs can be daunting. You should consult with your family and ensure your Will is a true representation of your wishes.
Our useful gift in will pack will help answer any questions you have about leaving a gift in your Will to the Scottish SPCA. Our Legacy team can offer you guidance throughout the process.
How to request a free Will
You can use the National Free Wills Network to get a simple Will drafted, free of charge, by a solicitor local to you. This service is free for anyone currently living in the UK.
If you complete the form to request a pack from the National Free Wills Network, you’ll be sent a form by post to complete. You can select a solicitor from a list supplied in your pack and use that to contact the one you would like to write your Will.
The cost of writing your Will through will be passed on to the Scottish SPCA. We pay a special rate to ensure you can write and update your Will through the service. However, you are under no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to us when you use the service.
Here for your pet if you can’t be
Our free Forever Care service can give you peace of mind that your dearly loved pet will be well looked after if your circumstances change.
If you find yourself unable to look after your companion due to a life-changing situation such as a serious illness or if you pass away, we can help.
We are there for animals in need and, through our free Forever Care service, that includes pets who outlive their owners.
