Gifts in Wills

Every gift, no matter how big or small, will help provide life-saving care and treatment 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 leave a lasting legacy and continue to support our vital work.

Gifts in Wills left to PDSA help treat every 2 out of 3 pets we care for. If you do think about 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 time to treat their pets, rather than having to give them up.

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 necessary care.

Your generous gift will help us continue saving pets. You'll also be contributing to the education of pet owners and keeping families and their furry companions together.

It costs us more than £60 million to provide veterinary care each year. All this money comes entirely from our generous supporters as we don't receive any government funding for our veterinary services. Your gift is vital for PDSA to continue running.

If you are thinking of leaving a gift in your Will to PDSA - thank you. You can find out how on our information pages.

Help a pet like Marley

When Marley crawled home one night in intense pain, his owner, Gaynor, rushed him straight to their local PDSA Pet Hospital. An X-ray showed poor Marley had a severely broken leg after a suspected road traffic accident, which would have to be amputated.

Such a diagnosis would be hard to take for any pet owners. But Marley holds an extra special role in the Hughes family. He came into their lives after Gaynor's husband died of cancer. With his loving nature he provided much-needed companionship and comfort, especially to Gaynor's youngest daughter Erin. so when Marley was found in such a critical condition, the family were frantic with worry.

Thanks to the skill and care of PDSA vets and vet nurses the procedure was successful and Marley returned to his family. If it wasn't for generous supporters who donate to PDSA, Marley may not have gotten the life-saving care he needed.
