Legacy Donations

Radcliffe Animal Centre means a lot to many people for many reasons, you may have given one of our rescued animals their forever home or required our local assistance and support at some point. Radcliffe Animal Centre remains dedicated to animal welfare within the local community . All donations including legacies received play a vital role in sustaining our future.

In 1824, we made it our responsibility to protect and care for all animals, and never tolerate abuse. It’s a promise to animals that we’ve worked hard to keep ever since – and one that thousands of people have helped us to deliver, by remembering us in their Will.

In fact, over half of our work is funded by people who have left us a gift in their Will. These gifts are hugely important to the work we do protecting vulnerable animals.

By deciding to remember us in your Will, you’ll help our us here at Radcliffe Animal Centre to rescue,

rehabilitate and rehome our animals in need.. Thanks to you, we’ll be there to protect animals from cruelty and neglect – not just today, but always.

How does it work?

If a relative or loved one has left a gift in their will for the RSPCA Radcliffe Trust then you can simply come down to the shelter and we can process the donation for you. We will also engrave a dedication plaque which will be featured on our legacy wall in reception.

If you need to update or make a will then our guide will provide you with the five simple steps to help you with this. If you choose to remember RSPCA Radcliffe in your will then you will be contributing to the centre’s future and helping us to continue caring for animals 365 days of the year.

The difference between making a legacy donation to RSPCA Radcliffe and the national RSPCA

By specifying that your legacy is to be left to RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre you have the peace of mind that your generous donation will continue to make a difference to our animals in need. When leaving a legacy donation, please ensure you have written the correct charity number (and specified RSPCA Radcliffe).

What next?

There are three main types of gifts you can leave to us in your will, we suggest you speak to a legal adviser to help make the decision that is right for you. Any gift left to us really does make a huge difference to the lives of the animals here at the centre.
