The RSPCA Nottingham and Notts Branch was founded in 1875 and we are one of 3 branches who cover the county of Nottinghamshire. Our area is primarily the city itself which is listed the 9th most populous urban area in England in 2020* With a dense urban population comes a significant number of pets and sadly, this in turn can lead to a concentration of potential neglect.
For the last 146 years we have been at the forefront of animal welfare in our great East Midlands city, providing advice, practical assistance and essentially, supporting local Inspectorate. Animals rescued by officers are more likely to have suffered at the hands of those they trusted. These creatures are and always have been, our priority
Through the kindness of individuals who have remembered us in their wills, Nottingham and Notts branch continues to be there for sick, injured and neglected animals. A legacy allows us to provide care, food and shelter for animals like Buddy (pictured right). At a very young age, Buddy required a double amputation (rear leg and his tail). Thanks to the generosity of gifts left to us, we were able to fund all his veterinary treatment and weeks of intensive recuperation too.
Discussing your will can be a difficult subject to broach. However, knowing your affairs are in order and that your wishes will be carried out as requested can bring a huge sense of comfort.
If you wish to support the work of this branch, it is important to state our full name and charity number when writing your will:
RSPCA Nottingham and Notts Branch ~ Registered charity number 255763
As a separately registered charity from RSPCA England and Wales, we rely on donations made directly to us. Every legacy we receive is hugely appreciated. We respect & value the fact that an individual wished to help animals even after their death. A bequest allows us to carry on rescuing and rehabilitating animals living here in Nottingham and on behalf of them, we are truly grateful.
If you would like to discuss a legacy further, please contact us, we will be happy to help.
