Gift In Your Will

Thank you for considering leaving a gift in your will to Rain Rescue. We hope this page has all the information you need, however if you wish to discuss this further please email

The generosity of gifts in wills would allow us to provide the necessary care to the dogs and cats here at Rain Rescue now and in the future. It is also vital in helping us to maintain and improve our facilities.

We do not receive any government or lottery funding, so we rely entirely upon the kindness of our supporters to continue our essential work. Rain Rescue has been rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals since 2002 and became a registered charity in 2006. Since then we have saved the lives of thousands of animals.

Further information

Why do I need a will?
Every adult should have a Will. Without a Will the law decides who inherits. With a Will you decide. With no Will it usually takes longer and costs more to wind up your estate.

Why do I need a solicitor’s help?
Many people are attracted by the low cost of using DIY packs or internet wills, but while they may be cheaper, if you don’t fully understand the law surrounding your legacy you may expose your will to costly challenges after your death. Using a solicitor is the only way to ensure that your will is valid under English law. Rain Rescue has teamed up with McClure Solicitors to offer its supporters a free will preparation service.

Without a valid will, complex cases can often take months or even years to be resolved. This can create additional pressures for your family and friends at a time when they are already under stress. Having your will drawn up by a professional is a sound investment for your loved ones’ futures.

How do I find a solicitor?
Rain Rescue has teamed up with McClure Solicitors to offer its supporters a free will preparation service saving you £150.

Why should I use McClure?

There are three good reasons :

  1. They have been preparing Wills since 1853 so they are good at it. They prepare thousands of Wills per annum. So you are in good hands.
  2. A standard Will only states who is to benefit when you die. Their ‘Estate Planning Wills’ ensure that your estate finishes up where you want it. Quite a difference.
  3. At present McClure will prepare your Will free of charge for the Charity. So now you can support Rain Rescue and get a good deal.

You can also go online and use the comprehensive solicitors’ directory to find a solicitor in your area who will write up a will for you according to your specific wishes and circumstances: search4solicitors

What if I’ve already made a will?
If you have already provided for your family and friends by making a will, but would like to amend it to include a gift to your favourite charity, you can do so by drawing up a codicil. A codicil is an addition or an amendment to your will. McClure also provide a Free Will Review service.

By leaving a legacy to Rain Rescue you are giving the gift of life to the animals that without charities like us might otherwise be destroyed through no fault of their own. It is important to know that the charity you support is going to use your gift wisely. With homeless animals on the increase and many needing veterinary attention, our work is crucial. Thank you.
