How to help us

Wills and Bequests

Bequests and Legacies

The RSPCA needs your support to ensure all animals are treated with the compassion and consideration that they deserve.

One of the most important ways that you can help the work of RSPCA ACT in the future is by including a bequest to RSPCA ACT in your Will, a lasting memory of the love you shared with your animals. After you have made provisions for your family and others in your Will, you may like to consider leaving a gift to help the animals that we care for every day. Your gift will help enable RSPCA ACT to continue our vital work long into the future, and will be a permanent legacy of your lifetime.

A gift in your Will could be the biggest gift you ever give to a charity. Bequests are in fact the largest single source of financial support for RSPCA ACT, making up about a quarter of our annual income. Many people choose to make a gift to charity as well as ensuring that their family, friends and pets will be taken care of.

The Prance Family Trust Fund was created under the last will of the late Jon Prance. Through this trust, four charities including RSPCA ACT receive a sizeable annual donation, and will continue to do so in perpetuity.

We thank the Prance Family Trust Fund, along with the Public Trustee for the Australian Capital Territory, and the GreaterGood.

Pet Legacy Program

Have you considered who will care for your beloved pets after you are gone?

Don’t let your pet be left alone and unwanted.

Don’t risk your pet being cared for in circumstances which you do not want.

To put your mind at ease, the RSPCA has established its Pet Legacy Program.

Through our Pet Legacy Program, your pets can be cared for following your passing. Our dedicated staff and volunteers will supervise their care and placement into a loving home with a background similar to the one that they have known. Is your cat an indoor cat with special dietary needs? Does your dog need a home away from other dogs? Don’t risk putting your animal in a situation which will add to the distress they will feel upon your death.

The RSPCA will take care of your pets and ensure they are treated just as you would treat them with all the love, comfort and attention that you would wish for. All new homes and foster parents are carefully selected to ensure that your pets will continue to enjoy good quality care.

Access to discounted veterinary services is provided and regular contact is maintained with their new home.

By leaving a bequest to RSPCA ACT you can be assured that your funds will go directly towards the care of your pet. For a free Bequest and Legacy publication or to discuss your options please email Lyn Mitchell or call 6287 8109.

General Donations

Donate

RSPCA ACT receives only 8 cents in the dollar from the ACT Government. We rely almost entirely on the community to assist us in the valuable work that we do caring for lost, unwanted, stray, orphaned and injured animals.

We do everything we can to ensure every domestic animal finds a home and injured wild animals have the best chance of release. Its costs a lot to provide this level of care and support and we appreciate your kind donation.

 

Each year we care for over 8,500 animals in need. All of the money donated goes directly into animal care here in the ACT. We do not take any administrative costs out of our donations.

You can direct your donation to a specific animal or purpose. Begin your donation story here: click here.

You can also visit our animal care facility in Weston to make a donation in person.

Volunteers

We rely on the community to continue to provide care for the thousands of animals that come to our shelter every year. Our volunteers are integral to assisting us with this care and day to day activities that allow us to manage a successful shelter to benefit both the community and all animals.

The cost of running a shelter each year is significant, and this outweighs the financial support that we receive from government and through our fundraising activities. From 1st October 2011 all volunteers are required become a member before they can commence volunteering this helps us with our administration cost for volunteers.
