Giving in memory of a loved one

We all feel differently when we lose a loved person or pet, so there are a number of ways you can remember a loved one through giving to us. They all make a difference to animals - and they can all help to bring comfort during a difficult time.

Ways to honour a loved one

Donate a gift in memory

Celebrate the life of a person or pet by sending a gift in their name.

Collections for a loved one

Making a collection for your loved one can be a positive way to keep their memory alive.

Leaving a gift in your Will

Leave a legacy to us and be a friend to animals in the future.

Celebrate a life by protecting animals, always

When we lose a loved one we often look for a way to bring something positive out of a sad time. To celebrate a life lived well, and to keep precious memories alive.

Giving in memory is a wonderful way to honour the life of a loved one. Perhaps you've lost a special person who had a lifelong affection for animals. Or a beloved pet who made you glad for the companionship that animals give us. In either case giving a gift to the RSPCA is, for many people, an uplifting and appropriate way to celebrate a life, while helping animals live lives free from cruelty and harm.

Coping with loss

Grieving for a person or pet that we love can be a difficult time in our lives. But you don't have to go through it alone. Cruse and Mind both have helpful services that can help you come to terms with the loss of a loved one. We also have some useful information if you've lost a loved pet.
