A legacy or bequest will provide crucial funds to enable the Venton Centre to continue to offer our rehoming service to hundreds of abandoned, unwanted and mistreated animals every year.

Each of the 171 RSPCA Branches in England and Wales is operates as a separate registered charity that must fundraise individually to maintain whatever animal facilities they run.

RSPCA Cornwall Branch owns and operates the Venton Rehoming Centre at St Columb which costs over £500,000 every year in vet fees, medication and food bills, as well as the utilities and other costs associated with running the business, to ensure the Centre can continue to operate.

If you would like the animals in Cornwall to benefit from a your Will, it is important that the wording used is specific to nominate RSPCA Cornwall Branch to received this kind gift from you.  It is always advisable to seek advice from your solicitor or Will writing service regarding any inclusions in your Will, but respectfully suggest your legacy wording reads:

It would help us considerably if you would kindly let us know if you are bequeathing anything to us in this way.  All we need is your name and address.  Please write to the Admin Officer at the Venton Centre address, or email: and we will retain your information in strict confidence for our records.
