Gifts in Wills

Animals in Distress relies largely on legacy income to help fund its vital work. Legacies not only help to cover our day to day costs, but have enabled us to realise some of our bigger aspirations such as our new cattery and cat sensory garden.

Every year we are being asked to help more and more dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs and find them their forever home. The cost of providing this care, the food, the warmth and vital veterinary treatment is on the increase. However, our commitment to these animals never waivers and we are constantly looking to offer the best possible care and future for these animals.

There is still a lot to do and a lot more animals to care for but it really does rely on the kindness and generosity of people like you.

Any gift, large or small, that you are able to give will be gratefully received and used in the best possible way, caring for our animals.

Leaving a gift in your Will is very straightforward, and our fundraising team are happy to answer any questions you may have and provide you with information on the process. You can contact us on 01803 812121 or email
