Giving in memory of a loved one

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 do just that. 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.

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.
