Legacies and Bequests

By making a gift in your Will to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada you can perpetuate your support for the animal welfare work in which you believe so strongly. On your behalf, we grant to every animal we admit :

Peace Freedom and Protection • The Best Possible Care and Medical Attention • The Right of Life Regardless of Age or Condition

And, when the time comes, a dignified peaceful death induced only in the event of extreme suffering and the loss of quality of life.

In years to come we want to make certain this quality of care will continue. And along with that, we want to educate and inform as many as we can about the need to improve standards of animal welfare. The earlier a child is informed, the greater the opportunity for him or her to become a responsible steward of the creatures with whom we share this world. When you include a bequest or legacy in your Will or in a Codicil, you are helping to ensure care, compassion and concern for animals in the future.

If you plan to make a bequest to the DSC in your Will, the correct legal name for the organization is The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada and our address is:
