Be remembered as a hero for animals
This branch exists because of a generous gift made in remembrance of an adored family cat. In 1979, Tom Forster donated the money to start our work, and we took in our first animals five years later. We simply wouldn’t be here without it.
We wish animal cruelty didn’t exist, but while it does we will continue to give mistreated and neglected animals the chance to start a new life with loving families. To provide this vital lifeline it costs us over £300,000 a year in vets bills, food, bedding and lifesaving drugs. Remembering us in your Will means we can continue to look after animals in need well into the future, and find their forever happy homes.
Your gift will leave a lasting pawprint on the heart of animals who have been through the worst situations, and give them a second chance to find happiness.
Once you’ve looked after your loved ones, please remember our branch in your Will
How to give
You can give a specific sum of money, an item, or a piece of property (this is called a pecuniary legacy), or part of what is left after your other gifts and bills have been dealt with (this is called a residuary legacy).
If you would like to help with a gift to the RSPCA in your Will, your solicitor might use the following suggested wording:
“I give the sum of £____ (or specify a share of the residue) to the RSPCA Warrington, Halton and St Helens Branch (registered charity number 232259) and I declare that the receipt of the honorary treasurer or other proper officer of the said Branch shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said Legacy”
You can also download and complete our legacy gift Leaflet to fill in yourself if you would prefer.
Protect your pets
Have you ever worried about who will care for your pets who outlive you? We would advise you to include them in your Will. If you haven’t identified a relative or friend who would be willing to care for your pets, the RSPCA offers a free service to find a loving home for your animals after you die.
