K9s 4 Valour needs YOUR HELP

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support K9s 4 Valour.

There are a number of different ways you can remember K9s 4 Valour in your will, depending on your circumstances.

a) Share of your estate, also known as a residuary gift. The residue of your estate is what remains of the estate once all your loved ones and charges have been paid. A residuary gift could be a percentage or the whole of the residue of your estate. Just 1, 2, 5% or more of your estate can make a difference.
