Is animal welfare part of your lasting legacy?

This week (9th – 15th September) is Will Writing Week, also known as Remember a Charity Week, and the NAWT is determined to bust the myth that only wealthy people can leave a gift in their Will.

Those who leave a gift in their Will ensure the long-term future of our charity, as they provide 68% of our annual income.

You can continue supporting animals even beyond your last days, by leaving a legacy in your will for the animals at NAWT. The legacies we receive help thousands of homeless animals in need of shelter, TLC and veterinary help.

Legacies we have received have varied in size over the years, from £100 pounds to hundreds of thousands of pounds, but all are of equal importance and greatly appreciated.

A perfect example of the difference gifts in Wills make can be seen in the story of a lucky former rescue dog called Arthur:

Arthur was very close to losing his life, arriving at our HULA centre in Bedfordshire early in 2018, with a horrific wound after being found at the side of the A5. He was understandably scared, as well as very underweight and needed 10 stitches, which cost £166 to the charity.

After making a remarkable recovery at the centre, his confidence slowly grew. This was made possible thanks to £350 worth of treatment, including vaccinations, neutering, training, enrichment and a nutritious diet.

Without this vital treatment and care, Arthur would not have made it. A gift in your Will of £350 might not save every dog, but it could save the life of a dog like Arthur, offering them the happy future they deserve.

We’re pleased to say that Arthur is now enjoying life with a home and a family to call his own, you can read his latest update here.
