Leave a Legacy

Leave a Legacy

Without the kindness of people who remember Gables in their Wills we would not be able to help as many animals as we do. More than half of the animals we help are cared for thanks to the kindness of people who remember us in this way.

At Gables we believe that there is a special someone out there for every dog and cat. That’s why we do our best to find loving new homes for all the animals in our care, no matter how long it takes, and are proud to say that we never put a healthy animal to sleep.

By remembering Gables in your Will you can help us continue to provide this commitment well into the future and ensure that we are always there to find as many dogs and cats as possible the special home we know they deserve.

A gift in your Will could make a real difference to dogs and cats in your local area and help provide the necessary resources for our staff and volunteers to carry on their vital work into the future. These special gifts have helped fund everything from improving our animal’s accommodation to providing essential resources such as food and veterinary care.

We are incredibly grateful for every gift we receive, no matter what the size. Even the smallest gifts help us to provide our animals with food, a warm bed, veterinary attention and most importantly of all, find them a loving home.

Making a Will

Making a Will, or adding a codicil to your existing Will is the only way to ensure that those you love will be taken care of, including your pets. If you have no immediate family, having an up to date Will allows you to make sure that your money benefits the people or causes that you really care about.

Anyone can leave a gift to Gables and every single gift, no matter how large or small, genuinely makes a huge difference to the lives of the dogs and cats we help.

For more assistance and advice please contact our fundraising team on 01752 342410 or email for a free Gifts in Wills pack.

We have partnered with Curtis Whiteford Crocker Solicitors who are providing Gables supporters with a free Will service. Please visit to contact them regarding this service.

Already made a Will?

Many people make a Will and assume that’s all they need to do. However, circumstances can change over the years and so it is always advisable to take a fresh look at your Will every few years to ensure it meets your current needs.

Changing your Will

If you have already made your Will and decide that you would like to add a gift to Gables, a codicil is a good, inexpensive way to do so. Adding a codicil to your Will enables you to leave a legacy to Gables whilst ensuring that the other provisions remain untouched and you won’t have to pay for your Will to be completely rewritten.

Thank you

If you have already included a gift in your Will to Gables, or intend to in the future, we would love to hear from you. Not only will this information allow us to plan for the future but more importantly it means that we can pass on our heartfelt thanks for your generous pledge as every legacy we receive is extremely important to us.
