Write your will for free with Dogs Trust

Your pledge could mean many more dogs finding the love of a new owner and a forever home.  

Having an up-to-date Will also makes sure your wishes are made clear and that your loved ones (both two and four-legged) are looked after when you’re gone. But it doesn’t need to be complicated and costly.

We’ve partnered with Octopus Legacy and Free Wills Month to help make creating a Will open to as many dog lovers as possible. When you choose to make your free Will with Dogs Trust, you’ll know you’re in capable hands.

You don't have to leave a gift to Dogs Trust, but we hope you’ll consider doing so after making sure your loved ones are taken care of. Any gift you can leave, large or small, will make sure that the special love you’ve shared with the dogs in your life can live on after you.  

*For complex Wills, or use of additional services, our Will writing partners will speak to you about any potential costs in advance, so you don’t receive an unexpected bill.
