Gifts in Wills

When you leave a gift in your Will to Thornberry, you help ensure that we can continue to be here for every dog and cat who needs us.

It allows us to care for them for as long as it takes to find them the homes they truly belong in, where they are treated with love, care and respect. A gift in your Will helps ensure their future.

You'll never stop caring - Neither will we!

For over 33 years, Thornberry has been here for every dog and cat, taking them in without question and caring for them without judgement. One in three of these animals was cared for thanks to gifts in Wills.

Gifts in Wills are vital to all areas of our work, so any gift you give, whatever size, will make a big difference to the animals in our care.

By remembering Thornberry in your Will, you’ll ensure that we can continue to be here for every dog and cat for as long as we’re needed.
