Your Wills x Dogs Victoria

Your Wills is proud to partner with the amazing and passionate team at Dogs Victoria.

Dogs. They walk with you, they run with you, they climb into a nook and share a doona with you. They’re our four-legged friends, ‘man’s best friend’ – the best kind of company when you need it most. It’s why we fondly refer to them as fur babies – a sentiment that says, ‘I’m not physically capable of making you, but there’s no doubt about it, you’re my child’.

Dogs Victoria (Victorian Canine Association) is the peak body representing owners and breeders of purebred dogs in Victoria and has a history dating back to 1877. More than 280 individual clubs representing a single breed, a group of breeds or all breeds are affiliated with Dogs Victoria. Their core purpose is to promote and protect purebred dogs, however they offer inclusive activities for crossbred dogs to join in activities such as agility and obedience.

In a world first, Your Wills has created a bespoke Gifts in Wills platform for Dogs Victoria which allows members to leave a gift in their Will to Dogs Victoria directly through their website.

The Program allows you to leave your legacy

Leaving a gift with Dogs Victoria is an empowering way of creating a lifetime legacy that will continue the growth of the organisation. Your gift can be used to support Dogs Victoria’s many programs from education and training through to canine health and research, or simply to give back to the sport you love.

Become Part of Dogs Victoria Bequest Club

With Your Wills, at step seven under Bequests Gifts in Wills and with your permission we’ll add you to Dogs Victoria’s Bequest Club.

All too often, the first Dogs Victoria hear about a bequest is when a member has passed away. The Your Wills x Dogs Victoria Wills Program allows Dogs Victoria to know about their members intention to leave a gift to the organisation in their Will. Allowing those individuals to become part of their Bequest Club. This club allows Dogs Victoria to recognise the generosity of their most important benefactors while they are still with us. It also enables Dogs Victoria to invite them to events and keep those updated about the good work of the organisation.

Gifts in Wills is a hugely important support for organisations like Dogs Victoria – many of whom would not be able to carry out their essential services without these generous donations.

Your gift – no matter how big or small – ensures your chosen organisation can continue their incredible work. You can read more about Gifts In Wills here:
