Gifts in Wills

Your gift can save pets’ lives by leaving a lasting legacy

A gift in your Will can help our life saving working. Every year at PDSA, our team of over 300 vets and 600 vet nurses treat over 470,000 UK pets in our 51 PDSA Pet Hospitals. Gifts in Wills fund two out of three pets treated by PDSA.

Your gift helps our veterinary experts prevent the preventable

We have much to do. Beyond treating sick and injured pets, there is a nation of pet owners who need to know how to prevent unnecessary disease and how to provide the best care and environment for their much loved pets. With your help and PDSA’s veterinary expertise we will help pet owners to create a better world for our pet companions.

Be part of our future and help stop pets suffering

If you can, please include a gift in your Will to PDSA and help turn breaking hearts into beating hearts.
