Thank you for your interest in leaving a gift in your Will to Canine Partners.

 

By including a gift for Canine Partners in your Will, you will enable us to continue responding to growing demand for assistance dogs to bring greater independence to people with physical disabilities throughout the UK.

 

Your commitment to the long term future of Canine Partners is so important to us and will give us the secure knowledge that, going forward, we are able to continue our work.

James (pictured) has told us how canine partner Winter has turned his life around since they were partnered in February 2012. Read his story here. 

 

It is stories like James and Winter’s that encourage us to keep striving to create more partnerships each year. We are receiving more applications than at any time in our history, and we know this demand will continue to grow.

 

We know that making or changing a Will requires some consideration. We are also aware that this is a sensitive and personal matter. Undoubtedly, your family and friends will be your first consideration. But if you can also remember Canine Partners, no matter what the amount, we can assure you that it will make all the difference to the lives of people with disabilities, who are still waiting for their gift of independence.
Having a Will can also ensure that your estate is divided by your wishes, and not by the law. It means that at a very difficult time, your family need not be burdened by decisions. Instead, they will be comforted by the knowledge that all is as you wished it to be.
The truth is that, depending on the current tax laws, leaving a gift to charity in your Will may reduce the estate tax burden on your heirs significantly.

 

We always advise that you see a solicitor to help you draw up, or amend, your Will.  If you would like to speak with us initially to find out what kind of gift you could leave, and how that will help us in the future, please contact Cat or Sara in our Legacies team either by telephoning 01730 716018, or email legacies@caninepartners.org.uk.

 

Should you choose to make a lasting and meaningful gift to Canine Partners, please let us know. This will help us to plan for the future with a greater degree of confidence.

 

Thank you so much for your interest in, and support of Canine Partners, because without people like you, we simply wouldn’t exist. Your gift, no matter how large or small, really can make a difference in the lives that follow.

 

 

What your gift could help us do in future:
• £100 could provide a canine partnership with one aftercare visit
• £800 could purchase a puppy for training
• £1,200 could house and feed one dog on-site during advanced training
• £4,000 could assess, train and match an individual on our waiting list with a canine partner
• £10,000 could train a puppy over 18 months, ready to be partnered
• £20,000 could create and support a canine partnership – training both puppy and individual and providing lifetime aftercare

Come rain or shine

Andy Cook - Monday, September 08, 2014
What a busy time we’ve been having! The last two weeks have flown by. It all started off with ‘Madhurst’ festival, including a parade through the streets of Midhurst with our puppies taking centre stage. Puppies Hamlin, Toffee, Banksy, Aston and Bonnie did us proud – their tails wagged happily despite the rain! Toffee then went on to give a demonstration of his skills to a very impressed audience,   Read More

Canine Partners’ Leicestershire Training Centre

Canine Partners needs to raise £3.1million to build a second Training Centre in order to train more dogs and change more lives.

We have purchased a site in a village called Osgathorpe, halfway between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Loughborough, which has a range of barns, outbuildings and associated land. The plan is to replace the barns and adapt some of the outbuildings to create the specialised buildings we need.

Having a Midlands Training Centre will not only increase our output, it will also make the charity far more accessible for those on our waiting list who are unable to make the long journey to our centre in West Sussex. 42% of the applications we received last year were from people living in the mid and northern regions of the UK. Many of our existing partnerships will also benefit from being able to receive support from the new centre.

The site will consist of a training centre and office facilities, fully accessible accommodation and kennelling.

This is an extremely exciting time for Canine Partners and we would be delighted to receive your support.

For more information about this project, please contact Cat Harvey on 01730 716018 or email catharvey@caninepartners.org.uk

Jobs available at the new centre will be advertised on our Vacancies page here: Work for us
