As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, the HappyPaws Haven relies upon community support for its continued existence.
Without bequests in the past, HappyPaws Haven would be unable to provide the current level of facilities and services which benefit the hundreds of animals assisted annually at the Sanctuary.
HappyPaws Haven is committed to achieving its Charter, which is ‘to rescue, desex, rehabilitate, rehome and educate for the well being of cats and dogs making a significant difference to their lives while in our care and beyond’. It believes that every animal deserves a ‘fair go’, including the opportunity of being adopted into a caring home.
A gift in your Will to HappyPaws Haven will continue your support of animals, and will help HappyPaws Haven to maintain its high standards of animal care and welfare.
