Home for life

Do you worry about what would happen to your pet in the event of your death? Home for Life is a service we’ve created to make sure we’re there if the worst were to happen.

Home for Life gives you the peace of mind that there can still be a bright future ahead for your beloved pet. We’ll be on hand to look after your pet and do all we can to find a new, loving home with someone who can give them everything they need.

Signing up

Signing up is easy, your solicitor just needs to update your Will with a simple clause (PDF 75.9KB). If you already have a Will, this can be done by adding a Codicil. This clause will ensure your executors are fully aware of your wishes to pass the legal responsibility of your pet to us.

Once you’ve amended your Will with the Home for Life clause, please register your interest using our easy online form.

We’ll then send you your own information pack.

Just like you, we want your pet to be as content in a new home as possible. So, if in the event of your death, you’ve arranged alternative care with a friend or family member, don’t worry, your pet can remain with them. Think of Home for Life as your safety net.

In exchange for their love and trust, you’ve promised to always take care of your pets – you can continue with this promise after you’re gone by signing up to Home for Life.

Help more animals in need

Many people who sign up to Home for Life also decide to leave us a gift in their Will to help us continue giving more animals a second chance.

Would you consider leaving a legacy to help safeguard our animals futures?

We would not exist without public donations and without the kind gifts left to us in supporters Wills. Over half of our income is received from people kind enough to remember the animals in their Will.

We cannot thank you enough for considering to support our cause.
