Bequest Information

Let your love for animals be your legacy. 

To give the gift of hope is a powerful way to change a life. 

Dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, birds, and other family pets are often the hidden victims of abuse. If you, like us, believe that no one should have to live with violence, please consider joining us in our promise to protect pets even when their loved ones can’t. 

Every pet we care for enables a family to escape domestic violence, help to break the cycle of abuse and give families and pets the chance to create new beginnings. 



There are many ways you can give to Pet Refuge New Zealand through your Legacy of Love. 

Pecuniary – this gives you the option to gift a specified sum of money to the Trust in your Will. 

Specified bequest – this is where a particular item of value is gifted to the Trust in your Will (for example stocks and shares, property or works of art). 

Residuary – this involves gifting whatever is left over, or a percentage thereof (the residue), from your estate, after all expenses and debts have been settled and your beloved ones are provided for. 

It is important to us that your legacy is as you want it, and we encourage you to speak with your solicitor, family, and friends about your wishes. 

Your decision to include us in your Will is something we do not take lightly. We know that it is a careful and considered decision and we appreciate the meaning behind it. 



If you would like to talk to us further, please call us on 09 975 0850 or email us at [email protected]

We would love to hear from you.
