Leave a Legacy

Leaving North Clwyd Animal Rescue a gift in your Will is a wonderful way to ensure that we can continue our vital work helping the hundreds of lost and abandoned animals we care for every year. Your kind gift, will enable us to continue to provide food, bedding and veterinary care for the animals living at our rehoming centre as well as helping us to maintain and improve this centre. Gifts left to us in Wills also help us to keep our promise to never destroy a healthy animal as they enable us to offer those animals that need extra TLC a happy, safe home for as long as they need it.If you would like further information about leaving North Clwyd Animal Rescue a gift in your Will, please feel free to contact us on 01745 560546 and ask for Anne or Nicky.

We have delivered high quality animal rescue services since 1981

We take in stray and abandoned animals and find them loving homes

We have a non-destructive policy with all our animals unless seriously ill and cannot be treated with veterinary care

We have a visiting animal behaviorist who works with our problem animals to improve their potential for adoption

We provide loving, dedicated care for dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs at our Rescue Centre and have developed a very good community reputation for our work.

We are a local charity who relies on individual donations and volunteers to keep our work going

We have no, secure income streams to support us.


Your legacy would help our charity in so many ways. As our charity evolves we are finding it is more and more difficult to raise the funds for everyday running, let alone specialised projects that are so important to our future.

Our main aim is to help and care for as many animals as possible; we see so many bad cases of neglect that it is so important to continue our work.

This is where you can continue to help the future of our charity, by leaving a gift in your Will.

This thoughtful gift will help us a great deal, plus you will be helping so many animals in years to come, what a nice thought!


‘You do so much good work which deserves wider recognition’
‘My dog always looks forward to your open days – it’s his second home here!’
‘I wish more people would think about supporting you in their Wills…it would allow you to do so many more valuable things for the animals’
‘I got my cat from you six months ago and now she’s changed my Life… She’s so wonderful – you did a great job rescuing and looking after her!’
‘Your staff are so polite and helpful – nothing’s too much trouble for them’
‘I hate to see so many animals just dumped by people, I’m sorry that you find it so hard to find the money to grow your services – they’re needed now more than ever’
‘You do so much good work with so little money I hope people appreciate this’


It’s so important to us that you have choices as to how we use your money. With this in mind we have developed a Portfolio of ‘Bequest Benefits’ to ensure that your particular interest is awarded with your kindness…

Animal Community Education
Animal Sanctuary Premises Development
Animal Sanctuary Staff Recruitment & Staff

All these choices are very important to our charity’s future development.We promise you that any Legacy left to NCAR will be used purely for your chosen area and for the welfare of the animals.


Your Legacy will be managed within a designated Legacy Bank Account.
Your Legacy Account will be managed by the Sanctuary’s General Manager
Your Legacy will fund your Bequest Benefits area of choice.
Your Legacy’s use will be assessed monthly by the Charity’s Management Team to ensure that ‘best value for money spent’ is being continuously achieved.
We will write to Legacy Benefactor’s families periodically to keep them informed about the outcomes from using your kind donation.

It’s easy to put off making a will, but it’s one of those important things we should all do. As well as making sure your loved ones are taken care of, many people also decide to leave a gift to charity, so the support for the causes they care about lives on as their legacy.

*There is a £10 a year subscription which can be cancelled once your will has been submitted. The first year is for free, so you won’t be charged anything now. This subscription lets you make unlimited updates to the will, saving you from having to buy a new one or pay for any edits as life changes. You can cancel it at any time by getting in touch with the Guardian Angel team. Please note that there may be a cost for more complex wills.
