A gift in your Will can leave all animals a better world

Leaving us a gift in your Will simply means you can be there for animals who need us – even after you’re gone.

Every gift that RSPCA South Australia receives is important, no matter how big or small.  In particular, gifts left in Wills are vital to the life-saving animal welfare work we undertake on a daily basis.

These simple steps outline what you need to do to make it happen. Or complete the form below to receive your free detailed guide to help make your Will. 

Simple steps to leaving a better world for animals

Step 1: Determine your estate wishes

Once you have calculated the value of your estate make a list of loved ones and organisations you’d like to leave money, property or possessions to.

Step 2: Appoint executors

Appoint one or more Executors to carry out the terms of the Will. This can be a relative, friend or legal adviser. 

Step 3: Create or update your Will

A Will is a legal document and should be prepared with the assistance of a trusted legal advisor or trustee.  If you have chosen to leave a gift to RSPCA South Australia, please use our suggested wording.

Step 4: Safely store your will

Make sure your Will is stored in a safe place and that someone you trust knows where it is. It’s also important to make a copy of your Will for your own records. Your legal adviser will often store your original Will free of charge. If you have your pets registered in our Home Ever After program, it is important we have a copy of the section that is applicable to us.

Step 5: Complete our pledge form

The legacy you have decided to leave will allow our organisation to continue our lifesaving work.  From the Inspectors and Rescue Officers on the front line to our amazing vets, shelter staff and volunteers we want to thank you!  Letting us know that you have decided to leave a gift via our online pledge form allows us to keep you updated on the important work we do and in turn offers you the opportunity to reach out to us if you ever need advice or help from one of our knowledgeable staff.
