Leave a Bequest
they feel hunger, thirst, heat, cold, pain, fear and loneliness"... our slogan, coined in 1970 is a fitting reminder of why we invite friends of WLPA to leave a gift in their will to animals. WLPA can receive bequests of property, shares and monetary gifts. Bequests are the lifeblood of our important work. WLPA remembers the generosity of people who make bequests in the Honor Roll of the Association which was started in our 80th year celebrations in 2015.
World League for Protection of Animals is a not-for-profit, tax deductible gift recipient organisation and a registered charity. A gift made to animals in your will today is a building block for protecting animals tomorrow.
Do your pets need our care when you die?
"No kill" means every species has a right to life, including our pets when we die. If we know in advance that your pets need care and rehoming to new loving parents should you become terminally ill or of advanced age, we can plan for their care in advance. Your will can nominate how you wish your pets to be cared for and our President can meet with you in your home to discuss your wishes. WLPA needs a sustainable future for all those in our care now and tomorrow and for the campaigns to protect animals after you have gone.
