Will you think of us?
Our branch is a separate registered charity and relies on donations raised locally.
The RSPCA Stafford, Wolverhampton & District Branch, help to rescue and rehome needy animals in the area. Some animals need our help because they have been badly treated or abandoned, others because their owners can no longer care for them. We give them any necessary veterinary treatment and board them in temporary homes until we can find them a permanent, happy new home. We also give advice to owners and, if necessary, help with the cost of veterinary treatment.
Leave a legacy
A legacy to the RSPCA Stafford, Wolverhampton & District Branch will provide crucial funds. We could not carry out our work without such generous support.
You can do this by making a will or by adding a codicil (a document which specifies alterations to your will). If you are making a will, please remember that the RSPCA Stafford, Wolverhampton & District Branch and all the other RSPCA branches are separately registered charities. So, if you would like the animals in your local area to benefit, we would respectfully suggest that your legacy reads:
I give the sum of £………. (or specify a share of residue) to the RSPCA Stafford, Wolverhampton & District Branch, Registered Charity Number 226711, PO Box 7190, Huntington, Cannock, WS12 9HB, for its general purposes and I declare that the receipt of the Honorary Treasurer or other proper officer of the said RSPCA for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.
Please note that a will or codicil needs to be properly witnessed, and you should obtain legal advice.
Gifts to registered charities are generally exempt from inheritance and capital gains taxes. A gift to the RSPCA Stafford, Wolverhampton & District Branch would therefore greatly benefit the local animals with minimum burden to your estate.
