Bristol Animal Rescue Centre Free Will

Bristol Animal Rescue Centre (Bristol A.R.C.) has cared for our city’s rescued pets and wildlife for over 130 years.

Since 1887, they have been helping, healing and homing Bristol’s vulnerable animals. Each year, they support many animals both within their centre and in the local community through their outreach programme. However, they do not receive automatic funding from the RSPCA and rely entirely on local community support to carry out their vital work.

We are proud to support Bristol Animal Rescue Centre by offering a free Will to anyone who includes a legacy* to the charity. Any money is greatly appreciated and goes a long way to caring for animals in need.

*Minimum legacy of £99.

Supporting Bristol Animal Rescue Centre

Our pets are part of our family, and we are passionate about supporting Bristol Animal Rescue Centre and the welfare of the animals they care for. They rely on regular donations, fundraising and, importantly, legacies to keep running. This is why we are offering a free Will to anyone who leaves a gift to support their cause.

Bristol Animal Rescue Centre Objectives

Their goal is to prevent cruelty, promote kindness to animals, reduce suffering, and increase their well-being as much as possible. Their welfare principles are based on the RSPCA’s ‘5 Freedoms’:

  • Freedom from hunger and thirst
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom from pain, injury and disease
  • Freedom to express normal behaviour
  • Freedom from fear and distress

Subject to space, the charity aims never to turn away an animal in need of their help. They always go the extra mile to meet the specific welfare needs of each animal in their care. As well as enrichment, diet, play and expert veterinary care, all animals are respected and treated with empathy and compassion.

Do I need a Will?

It is always recommended that everyone makes a Last Will & Testament, whatever their age. While no one likes to think about the need for a Will, most of those who have put a Will in place have done so for the peace of mind it offers. Once you have written a Will, you can rest assured that your loved ones will be provided for and your assets protected.

If you die without a Will (or with a Will that is not legally valid or can’t be found), then you die ‘intestate’, and your property (the estate) must be shared according to the rules of intestacy. Essentially, this means that your assets may not go to those you would have chosen and instead may be spent or lost when they could have been safeguarded for future generations. Furthermore, if you leave behind children under the age of 18, it will be for the Court to decide who shall be their legal guardian, and this may not be the person you would have chosen.

By putting a Will in place, you can ensure that your estate passes to those you want to inherit. When you write your will with ELM, you may choose who you would like to act as Executor to administer your estate after your passing. Furthermore, our standard Will allows you to appoint guardians to take care of any children you have under the age of eighteen.

If you think it is time to protect your estate whilst also giving back to a good cause, then get your free Will today when you leave a legacy to Bristol Animal Rescue Centre.
