We know it’s not easy thinking about what’s going to happen to your loved ones (furry and human) and all of your assets when you pass.

Many charities like us rely on the gifts left in Wills to operate and fund the causes they support.

Ellis Michaels, Legacy and In-Memory Administrator says: “1 in 4 of the dogs who come into our care are supported by gifts in Wills, that’s a quarter of all of the dogs who come through our doors.

“Legacy donations not only care for dogs in need, but also provides them with training or life-changing veterinary care, enabling them to go on and live happy and comfortable lives in forever homes.

“We know that writing your Will can seem like a daunting task, especially if you'd like to leave something to a charity like us – but don't worry we're here to help.

“Our "Remembering Jerry Green Dog Rescue in your Will" guide offers handy advice on the wording you can use in your Will along with helpful contact details and forms you can fill and send to us – so you can have peace of mind that we know what your intentions are.

We are here to support you through every step of your Will writing process, and hope to provide the answers to any questions you may have with our free guide.”

Willing your dog(s) to us

It is natural for you to worry about your dogs if the worst should happen and you are no longer there to care for them. If you would like Jerry Green Dog Rescue to care for your beloved pooch when you are no longer there and find them new loving homes, you can get in touch with Ellis to find out more.

In-Memory Giving

Whether you wish to remember a dog lover or a canine friend, giving a gift In-Memory is a wonderful tribute to that love. When you leave a gift in memory it will continue to grow and live on through the care and happiness of Jerry Green Dogs.

At each of our centres we have a dedicated In-Memory garden to honour the lives of our dogs, supporters, and friends. We will proudly display your forget-me-not plaque in our centre gardens. It is our hope that during times when it may get hard or you want to share a smile that you will visit us and stay a little while.

Kelly is just one of the many dogs who have been remembered in our North Lincolnshire memory garden, you can read her story here.
