Leaving a gift in your will to Yorkshire Cat Rescue is a wonderful way for cat lovers like you to save the lives of cats and kittens for years to come.
Yorkshire Cat Rescue saves many precious cats and kittens each year, rescuing them from harm and dangerous situations, and giving them warmth, care and love until they are adopted into forever homes where they will receive the love and comfort they deserve.
Cats like Valentine. His owner was evicted and was living in his car. Valentine’s mum was pregnant and gave birth to Valentine and his brothers in the car. Yorkshire Cat Rescue was able to take Valentine and his family and place them in a safe and loving foster home until they were big enough to be rehomed. Valentine is now a much-adored member of his family. Without legacy gifts from cat lovers like yourself, we would not be able to help so many helpless kittens like Valentine and give them the chance of a happy and loving home.
Once you have provided for your loved ones, please remember Yorkshire Cat Rescue when you’re writing your will.
You can leave a donation to be used in our general funds, or you can specify how you would like your legacy to be used – for example to pay for neutering or to be used towards our new centre.
And please remember to take care of your own cats in your will. You can leave instructions in your will that your cats are to be rehomed by Yorkshire Cat Rescue.
Each and every gift can help to make a lasting difference to the work of Yorkshire Cat Rescue – giving many more cats a second chance to find love and putting smiles on faces as they “make a house a home”.
