As a charity we make no profit and at present, receive no Government support, so we rely on the generosity of the public. Last year, gifts received from supporters in their wills accounted for approximately one third of our annual income.

It is important to make a will so that you can provide for your loved ones after your lifetime, and be assured that your wishes will be carried on. When making your will it is also a good time to think about causes that are important to you – such as Cheltenham Animal Shelter.

Once you have spoken to your solicitor about your wishes, and written your will, we ask that you write to us to let us know that you have left a gift to Cheltenham Animal Shelter. This helps us plan for the future.

Your legacy will be used only for the benefit of our animals, so that they receive the best care we can provide.

By leaving a legacy, you may be able to reduce the amount of tax due from your loved ones. For further information on up to date inheritance tax issues please seek professional advice.

If you would like to discuss your wishes with our fundraising team, please contact us on 01242 523521 or email You can also download our legacy information pack* and codicil form.
