Gifts in Wills

Every gift, no matter how big or small, will help provide life-saving treatment and care for sick and injured pets in need.

Having a Will means your wishes will be carried out as you would want when the time comes. If you don't make a Will, you will be unable to decide what happens to your property and possessions.

Nothing is more important than your loved ones, so of course they will be your priority when thinking about your Will. We know this is a big decision and your Will is very personal, so we encourage you to discuss it with your family. The most important thing is that your Will represents your personal wishes.

Leaving a gift in your Will is a great way to let your love of pets live on. You'll be leaving a lasting legacy and helping to ensure our vital work continues. .

Gifts in Wills left to PDSA help treat 2 out of every 3 pets we care for and are essential to ensuring we can help vulnerable pets in need.  If you do consider leaving a gift to PDSA, thank you so much.

Why should I leave a gift in my Will to PDSA?

We deliver life-saving care for the nation's pets from our 48 Pet Hospitals across the UK. We support owners who have fallen on hard times by treating their pets in their time of need, preventing them suffering.

We provide a vital lifeline to hundreds of thousands of worried pet owners who love and cherish their furry companions, but whose circumstances prevent them from accessing veterinary care.

Your wonderful gift will help us continue treating and saving pets – keeping families and their furry companions together.

It costs us more than £65 million to provide veterinary care to poorly pets each year. This money comes entirely from generous public support. Your gift is vital for PDSA to continue helping pets who desperately need our help.

If you are thinking of leaving a gift in your Will to PDSA - thank you. Two out of every three pets we treat are funded by gifts in Wills from kind supporters such as Geoffrey and June.

Geoffrey is a massive supporter of PDSA and an avid animal lover. He has experienced the amazing services from PDSA first-hand as his previous dog, Patch, had a life-saving operation at one of our Pet Hospitals. He’s been forever grateful and has decided to continue supporting PDSA by leaving a gift in his Will.

June was an avid animal lover and passionate supporter of PDSA. When she passed away, Jocelyn became the executor of her Will and made sure that money from her mum’s estate was donated to PDSA. Find out more about why June and Geoffrey are leaving a gift in their Wills here:
