“Leaving A Gift In Your Will To Help Animals”
Enabling us to provide a dignified, joyful, protected way to give life and give hope to animals who had no hope before we rescued them from a very dark future.
You would not be on this page if you did not love animals and, like us, you would end all of their suffering and hard ship if you only could, regrettably no one can achieve that, but together we can make a difference and every single animal that we help is worthwhile.
Just because the animals that we help are perhaps not in your country does not mean that what they are suffering is any less, it is a far better life to be a stray on the streets in the UK than in Sri Lanka.
It really does not matter if the animal charity that you support is local or not, it is all about the animals themselves, they are what matters, please do not let the fact we may be 100’s of miles away sway your decision from helping us.
It is because we are so far away that we get very little support and are often forgotten, but you can clearly see the plight of the strays that we help and the results of our efforts shining through on the faces of our many success stories.
We are 100% funded by kind donations, they are vital to the survival of our charity and therefore to the survival of the animal in our care, imaging what would happen if we ran out of money and could not care for the 2000 animals in the sanctuary, it is unthinkable, plus all the others that we help on the streets and will help in the future.
Our role is never ending here, we are doing our best to educate locals on the animal care and to value and appreciate them for the wonderful creatures that they are with our out- reach programs.
The world has changes so much and the “New Normal” will have a very bad effect on donations especially to animals which is why we are asking for animal lovers around the world to leave a gift in their wills to help is to help them.
Whatever you are able to give will be so very gratefully received and put to the best possible use.
A Gift in your will to Animal SOS Sri Lanka, will help to ensure that when you are no longer with us, can continue to help animals long into the future.
Making your Will is easier than you may think.
