We never stop caring
We never stop caring
Your legacy could help us to promote responsible pet ownership throughout the UK, preventing many future generations of animal abandonment and mistreatment. So please, consider making the improvement of animal welfare in the UK your legacy for the future.
At the National Animal Welfare Trust, we have established ourselves over 45 years as the animal welfare charity that never stops caring, and demand for our work continues to grow. However, we are still a relatively small charity and underfunded when compared to some of the more well-known rescue and rehoming charities. Despite this, we manage to operate five centres in England; rescuing and rehoming up to 1,800 animals a year.
We never stop caring. It’s not only the animals that come to us that we aim to help but pets and pet owners throughout the UK that are in need of help, information or advice. As part of our mission to promote responsible pet ownership, we took the decision to become the first UK rescue and rehoming charity to pilot Open Paw; a programme developed to provide all our animals with the enrichment, training and social skills they will need to make them more rehomeable and to enable them to successfully settle into life in their new homes. The programme provides practical hands-on training for staff, volunteers and prospective and existing pet owners; educating our local communities on responsible pet ownership and training.
Any gift in your Will, large or small, could make such a big difference to the lives of the animals we care for. In fact, 8 in every 10 animals rescued and rehomed by the National Animal Welfare Trust are helped thanks to gifts in Wills. It is true to say that legacies are absolutely crucial to our future and we simply could not continue to offer this level of training, support and care to abandoned and unwanted animals if it wasn’t for the generous support of people like you.
We take our financial responsibility seriously and only spend on what we need. 85p from every £1 you donate is spent directly on the welfare of the animals in our Centres. However you choose to support the National Animal Welfare Trust, we are grateful. Every penny is accounted for and we are able to take care of animals waiting for a new family because of what you so generously give.
