Why leave a legacy to Animal Aid?
Because leaving money to Animal Aid is an effective way of preventing animal suffering. Over the last few years, we have:
- Played a central role in stopping Cambridge University from building a primate testing facility
- Stopped Focus DIY, Wyevale and Henley-in-Arden market from selling pets
- Landed the shooting industry with a £20 million tax bill
- Stopped horses being sold for meat at Ascot horse sales
- Stopped Oxford City Council introducing horse-drawn carriages
- Stopped Britain’s largest bird fair from taking place
- Blocked proposals for four reptile zoos
- Stopped local councils from culling birds
- Conducted an undercover investigation, which led to the closure of Henley-in-Arden market
- Conducted undercover investigations into the shooting industry’s use of battery cages for breeding birds, forcing the leading pro-shoot lobby group to condemn such “horrific” conditions
- Gone head to head with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons over our right to criticise vivisection ... and won
- Stopped Makro selling live lobsters in its 30 stores
- Stopped Asda, Morrison’s, Sainsbury, Co-op and Tesco from advertising pets for sale on their notice boards
- Stopped pig racing events at a country fair
- Forced John Lewis to disband its shooting club and end the rearing and shooting of pheasants on its estate
Legacies now make up around one third of Animal Aid’s income, so we need them to continue with our current level of campaigning and educational work. We offer a free will writing service, for Animal Aid members and supporters only, and we can tell you the wording to use in your will, if you do not wish to use our free will-writing service.
The booklet also helps if you have no-one to look after your pets after you die.
