Become an Animal Protector For Ever

No matter how small or large, a charitable bequest can protect animals for generations to come.

A gift in your will, legally known as a bequest, is a gift you can leave to a charity in your Will. Animals in all corners of the world will benefit from a gift in your Will, now and into the future. Their need has never been greater. Even a small gift, after you have provided for your loved ones, can make the world a better place for animals.

By leaving a gift to World Animal Protection in your Will, you can help us bring practical aid to animals in need and move the world to protect animals by:

  • Influencing the decisions people make that affect animals on a global scale
  • Helping people understand how protecting animals is fundamental to their lives
  • Helping people act in sustainable and practical ways that will benefit animals.

Grace Pavone, Bequestor

"My decision in 2013 to Bequest World Animal Protection was an easy one. One I am proud & honoured to have made.

"World Animal Protection works tirelessly to defend and protect voiceless animals of all species, sizes and issues worldwide.

"This work is carried out by teams of amazing & dedicated people (both on the field & behind the scenes) who see the horrors but have also achieved significant changes over the years for animals; including the importance of educating and raising public awareness. I am in awe of them.

"I’m confident, that through my Gift, this work will continue and expand and that my one voice will be one of millions to make one big voice for all animals in need of attention and action by World Animal Protection.

"Maybe the COVID-19 global pandemic highlighted that animals have a rightful and respectful place on our planet that we share. I hope this has inspired to re-evaluate and consider a Gift in their Will to make a better world for all animals."
