Make a Will

There will come a time…

Whether you’re a pet owner, an animal lover, or just somebody who wants to leave a legacy that will make a real difference…  remembering an animal welfare charity in your Will is an act of kindness and compassion that will live on long after you’re gone.

Your Will is the legal document that sets out how you want the things you own to be distributed when you pass. Wills can be complex and expensive to draft, but they aren’t just for people who own property or have lots of money! If you die without making a Will (‘intestate’), your assets, including all your personal belongings, will be distributed according to law. While this will benefit your legal next of kin, it could mean that some of the people you most want to benefit from your estate might not get anything. Also, it may take longer and cost more to administer.

Furthermore, if you are a pet owner, the DSPCA’s Pet Guardian Programme also ensures that in the event of your death, your pets will be taken into the care of the DSPCA, who will find them a suitable, fully-vetted home that offers the love and attention they deserve.

As Ireland’s largest and oldest animal welfare organization, even a small bequest to the DSPCA in your Will would make a big difference in our important work of preventing or alleviating cruelty, neglect, sickness or accidental injury to animals. So remove the doubts and difficulties that can arise if there is no evidence of  your wishes upon your passing – make your will today with this free DSPCA ‘Online Will Service’.
