By remembering Bath Cats & Dogs Home in your Will, your gift will protect future generations of pets in need by ensuring we can always care for them when they have nowhere else to go. With over half of our funding received through Gifts in Wills, every gift no matter what size will help put an end to animal cruelty and neglect on your doorstep.

For over 80 years we have been there to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome cats, dogs and small animals when they need us. Through the kind help of our animal loving supporters we have already saved over 110,000 animals so far.

When a solicitor or other professional writes your Will, you have two basic choices: to leave a share of your estate (a ‘Residuary Bequest’) or a cash gift (a ‘Pecuniary Bequest’). In the long run, the former will probably hold its value better and be of more benefit to the animals in our care but it’s entirely up to you. For ease there is some suggested wording for your solicitor that you can download below.

To ensure the money comes to the Home you do need to include our full name and address, Bath Cats and Dogs Home, the Avenue, Claverton Down, Bath, BA2 7AZ - and our registered charity number - 205594. 

To request a free Gifts in Wills information pack, which includes info on animals rescued through Gifts in Wills, frequently asked questions plus details of our discounted wills offer, fill in the form here

After remembering loved ones please consider leaving a gift to Bath cats and Dogs Home, thank you, together we will save unwanted animals in our area.
