Your legacy can save dogs lives – just a small gift in your Will could make a huge difference to the life of one or many of our dogs.
Valgrays Border Collie & Animal Rescue is run by Val Phillips and a team of dog lovers who work exceptionally hard to rescue and rehome as many homeless dogs as possible. As we are run by volunteers, we are completely reliant on the kind donations made to us throughout the year and do not receive any government funding.
As a small charity, we do not have the size and scale of other better-known dog charities to run nationwide campaigns to raise funds, but are looking to raise awareness of our charity to increase the level of donations we receive, especially donations through Wills, to enable us to save more dogs.
If you are looking to make a Will or already have a Will and would like to consider giving a gift to Valgrays Border Collie & Animal Rescue as part of your legacy, your act of kindness could help us with all of the valuable work that we undertake. This is vital in helping us to pay for kennelling for our dogs until we find them their new forever homes.
£5.00 per month will pay towards heating, £10.00 per month will pay for one night’s boarding and food, and any further funding will help us rescue and rehome more dogs, contribute towards veterinary treatments such as vaccinations, neutering and microchipping.
Making a Will:
We are not able to provide advice on how to make a Will, but suggest that a local solicitor will be able to provide advice on how to set up a Will in order to leave clear instructions about any gifts you may wish to make to a charity like Valgrays Border Collie & Animal Rescue. Remember that any amount, however small, can make a big difference to one of our dogs.
There are different types of legacy that you can include:
- Pecuniary legacy – A gift of a sum of money.
- Residuary legacy – The residue of your estate is everything left over after all debts, testamentary expenses and other types of legacies have been paid.
- Specific legacy – A specific item such as a piece of jewellery, an antique, shares or property.
Key Information to include: You will need to include our name and address and charity registration number Valgrays Border Collie & Animal Rescue – Charity Number 1088503.
Thank you for thinking of Valgrays and the many dogs which will benefit from your kindness.
