Have you ever considered leaving a charitable gift in your will?

If you leave a gift in your will to ‘Give a Dog a Bone… and an animal a home’, not only will you support a rescue animal to find a home, you will help tackle loneliness for older adults too!

When we commit to supporting an animal on our monthly support scheme, we commit to supporting them over the course of their lifetime.  This support removes some of the financial pressures an older adult has, in relation to their pet companion.

Your gift will also support our life line Companionship in the Community project which tackles social isolation and loneliness, by offering a safe space for older adults to make new friends, learn new skills and mix with our team of Companionship Dogs!

Please consider leaving a gift in your will to GADAB – Felicity has done so, and here are her reasons why…


Legacy Fundraising - QA

Why do you feel its important to leave a gift to charity in your will?

GADAB has made a huge difference to me, a pensioner, by paying the adoption fee for my cat and giving me a monthly allowance to help with her food costs (very necessary as it turns out that she has allergies no one knew about and needs a special diet). I don’t have the means to support GADAB financially at the moment, so I would like to leave a legacy in my will to help the work continue, to alleviate loneliness in older people like me and provide loving homes for animals with no one to care for them and love them, like the sweet little cat I adopted.

What made you choose Give a Dog a Bone?

I used to say that if I won the lottery I’d want to set up a charity to help elderly people with elderly pets. As people get older, so do their pets, and their expenses tend to rise as they need more veterinary care and medications to keep them fit and well while their guardian’s income is low. When a friend told me about GADAB I was delighted to find that someone had recognised this need and done something about it! So I would like to help GADAB continue its very valuable work and “pay forward” the help it is giving me

What would you say to others considering leaving a legacy to the Give a Dog a Bone charity?

GADAB is a relatively new charity filling a real need that no one else is addressing. When my previous cat fell ill expenses not covered by his pet insurance (such as the prescription diet he was on) were mounting. I asked a number of animal charities if they could help. They were all very sympathetic but they all said there was nothing they could do. Then I asked GADAB and they immediately said yes!
