Pet Bequests

Although no one likes to think of what might happen to your beloved pets when you are no longer able to care for them, RSPCA WA has a Pet Bequest program which gives pet owners of any age peace of mind knowing your pets will receive the best possible care in future years.

Should your pet/s outlive you, RSPCA WA will take them into our care, and do all we can to find a new, loving home for them.

Before you finalise your will, we suggest you contact our Planned Giving Coordinator on (08) 9209 9332 to ensure we can meet your wishes and to properly register your pet for our Pet Bequest program.

If you don’t have family or friends who could care for your pet/s, we offer this service to all who leave a bequest in their Will to RSPCA WA. To make your wishes for the future care of your pets known, click here for suggested bequest clauses to discuss with your lawyer or estate planner when drafting your Will.

It is best to refer to any animals included in your bequest in general terms such as 'the animals that I own at the time of my death' or 'my treasured pets' rather than naming or describing a specific pet.
