Like to make a Bequest in your Will to Central Victoria’s only “No Kill” Shelter?

Bendigo Animal Welfare & Community Services will ensure pets are either fostered into a new home and a new life that reflects the wishes of their former owners, or they remain in comfort in our facility where they will be loved and cared for just as they have always been.

Please refer to the┬áPet Bequest Program document below for suggested ‘wording’ or contact us for more details.

Butterscotch in a basketDonation In Lieu of Flowers

Making a donation to BAWCS in lieu of sending flowers is a lovely way to honour the memory of an animal loving friend or family member. You may also wish to include this request in the funeral notice.

Not only will you be providing a lasting tribute to those close to you, but your support will help us continue our work caring for and rehoming animals in need.
