Wellington SPCA receives no government funding to help us in our animal welfare work. Instead, we rely on the generosity of animal lovers to support animals through the precious gift they leave in their Will. Most people do not realise that legacies are our largest source of funding and our on-going lifeblood providing income for many years ahead. They literally save the lives of countless animals every year.
Leaving a gift to the animals is a fitting way to celebrate the love and companionship you have enjoyed during your own lifetime. Your gift can help ensure that the SPCA will always be here to help animals through our essential work.
There are a variety of ways to leave a gift in your Will to Wellington SPCA depending on what suits you best:
Your gift means a great deal to Wellington SPCA, and to assist you in writing your Will, please see our Legacy Programme brochure with recommended wording for your Will.
Deciding how you wish to divide your estate can be a complex undertaking. We therefore encourage you to consult with a solicitor, and discuss your intentions with family and loved ones. This is key to ensuring your charitable wishes are honoured.
When you have made the decision to leave a gift to the animals, you can let us know through our easy online pledge form.
We understand that pets are part of your family, and just as with your loved ones, provisions should be made for them should you pass away before they do.
Our Home Ever After programme is a free service that gives you peace of mind and helps safeguard your pet’s future. After your death, Wellington SPCA will be there for your cherished cats and dogs. We will collect your faithful companion, and then do everything we can to find your pet a loving forever home.
Everyone is different, and so are their circumstances, so it's important that the gift you leave is right for you. If you would like to know more about our Legacy or Home Every After programmes, please contact Amber Proudfoot, Legacy Giving on 04 389 8044 ex 873 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wellington SPCA wishes to acknowledge the support of RSPCA NSW for the use of the Home Ever After Programme. Our Legacy Programme has been made possible through the generosity of the Margaret Doucas Estate.
