“Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened” – Anatole France

For many of us, our pets are cherished companions we share our lives with. However, very few of us have a plan in place should we find ourselves unable to look after them. The RSPCA Qld’s Pet Legacy Program exists to give you peace of mind, knowing that your animal companions will be cared for should you pass away.

The Pet Legacy Program is available to anyone who leaves a gift to RSPCA Qld in their Will. This program ensures that any pets you have at the time of your passing are rehomed with a loving family, who can care for your pets in the manner that they are accustomed.

Also, should there be an emergency situation, such as having to be admitted to hospital when there is no-one available to look after your pets, then RSPCA Qld will care for your pets during this time.

We take great care in finding the right home or carer for your loved pet, and we will ensure their transition into a new home is as stress-free as possible.

To enrol your pets in this program after leaving a bequest, or to request our Pet Legacy brochure, simply contact our Senior Relationship Officer for Planned Giving, Marion Rightford on (07) 3426 9937 or via email.
