Why your legacy gift matters

If you are thinking about leaving a Legacy Donation in your Will to help continue the vital work done by the RSPCA, you may wish to consider leaving an amount specifically to assist in the care and protection of animals in your local area, and make a donation to RSPCA Manchester and Salford branch.

Many animal lovers choose to leave our Branch a gift in their Will, helping to secure the safety of small animals in Manchester and Salford for many years to come. Legacy gifts underpin so much of our work, funding around a quarter of our costs every year.

Every animal in our care has been rescued by RSPCA inspectors, including the most mistreated cats, kittens, rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small furries. Help us create a new start for these animals  by leaving a gift in your Will.

Free will writing service for all our supporters

We have partnered with two accredited will writing services to offer all of supporters a free will.

What Legacy Donations Means to Our Branch 

A note from our Branch Manager, Susie:

“Caring for animals rescued by a national RSPCA officer is at the heart of everything we do at the RSPCA Manchester and Salford Branch. Because we take in, care for, and rehome the most mistreated small animals, some days and weeks can be emotionally exhausting. 

As the Branch Manager I need to make sure we have enough money to help the animals that come to us. Knowing that there are animal lovers out there who support our work helps me manage this responsibility. When a notification of a legacy gift arrives, I have what I consider the greatest of honours – to fulfil the wishes of the person who has trusted us with their pledge and to ensure that their love of animals leaves a lasting legacy. 

I can honestly say that our work simply would not be possible without the lifelines that a gift in a Will provides. Donors keep our Animal Centre open 365 days a year – so that our doors can always be open for every small animal who needs us. Thank you for giving Manchester’s mistreated animals hope of a safe home and a happy future.”
