Wills & A Legacy

Older Staffordshire Bull Terriers, an often maligned canine breed, and their cross-breeds are the reason that the Senior Staffy Club exists. Each year our growing team of volunteers put their hearts and souls in to rescuing older dogs and looking after them until we can find new homes for each and everyone.

If you have owned a Staffy and found their love, devotion and companionship a central part of your life and family, then you may wish to consider helping them long in to the future by remembering him or her after you have gone with a legacy in your Will. In fact, you needn’t just love staffies – recognising the exceptional bond between dog and man in your life may simply be enough!

The Senior Staffy Club has grown and wants to reach out nationally to meet their rescue and re-homing ambitions. To do that requires money, so thinking of us in your will is a wonderful way to help us achieve that aim. Indeed, if you are likely to leave a sizeable estate then giving to us, a registered charity, can help reduce liability to Inheritance Tax (IHT) – to see details click here.

Senior Staffy Club is a registered charity regulated by the Charities Commission. All funds we receive are spent wholly and exclusively on the welfare of the dogs.

Making a Will and adding a Legacy

Your Will should be in writing and signed by you and two witnesses. It is always best to seek professional advice when making a Will.

Should you decide to leave a legacy to the Senior Staffy Club please use the appropriate clause (see below) for inclusion in your Will. If you have already made a Will you can add a minor change – known as a codicil -without having to make a new Will. Please discuss this with your legal advisor.
