Why leave a legacy to SPCA Auckland?
SPCA Auckland receives no government funding to help us in our animal welfare work. Instead, we rely on the generosity of animal lovers to support animals through the precious gift they leave in their will.
Most people do not realise that legacies are our largest source of funding and our on-going lifeblood providing income for many years ahead. They literally save the lives of countless animals every year.
Leaving a gift to the animals is a fitting way to celebrate the love and companionship you have enjoyed during your own lifetime.Your gift can help ensure that the SPCA will always be here to help Auckland's animals through our essential work.
The different ways you can make a gift in your will to SPCA Auckland

- Pecuniary - this means a specified sum of money in a will.
- Specified bequest - this is where a particular item is specified in a will, for example, works of art, or stocks and shares, or even property.
