Making it official
Pet Promise is a completely free scheme to join – but to make your wishes for your pet’s future welfare official, we recommend asking your solicitor to update your will. Below you’ll find suggested wording that can be added to your will so that when the time comes, your Executor will be able to contact us and we’ll make the necessary arrangements for your pet to come into our care as soon as possible.
At the same time, if you’re able to do so, it would be wonderful if you could leave a gift to Wood Green in your will. Our services, like Pet Promise, are provided completely free of charge so that animals get the best care when they need it the most – but this is only possible thanks to donations and the gifts in wills made to us by animal lovers.
Pet Promise in your will
Here is some suggested wording your solicitor could use that will pass the care of your pet(s) onto Wood Green when the time comes.
“I express the wish that on my death Wood Green, The Animals Charity, King’s Bush Farm, London Road, Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire PE29 2NH – Registered charity no. 298348 should take responsibility for rehoming any domestic pets that I may own at the time of my death or otherwise acting in their best interests.”
