Four easy steps to leaving a gift in your Will

Recent events have shown us the importance of spending time with family and looking after our loved ones. We are also grateful to our much-loved pets and fury friends who have brought us joy and companionship at this time of uncertainty.

At FOUR PAWS, our loved ones include an even larger family of lions, tigers and bears who your donations have helped rescue from abuse. Our priority is to always take care of their immediate needs and protect their future.

That’s why we have decided to make looking after those you love stress-free and have partnered with will-writing service, Bequeathed - offering you a completely free online will-writing service. It’s something you can do from the comfort of your own home and in your own time without it costing you a penny.

The impact of gifts in Wills

Estimated to be less than 3 years old, bears Lili, Lulu and Lac had a terrible start to life. Brutally stolen from their mother; the safety, security and love that these bears needed – gone in a moment.

Taken to an illegal bile farm, they were forced to live in dark cramped cages, barely room to turn around. Cold metal cage bars replaced the comfort they had known. Their natural instincts to play and explore – cruelly taken away from them.

Luckily for these 3 bears, your generosity meant we could be there to end their suffering and give them a fresh new start at our BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh where they receive expert care and the nurturing they deserve.

The donations we have received from gifts in wills have been enough to run our BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh in Vietnam for 6 months. Your gifts, large or small and in all shapes make a huge impact to our work and the lives of the animals we rescue and protect.
