Remember PETA in Your Will
A Will is a convenient – and often simple and straightforward – way to distribute assets to those you love. It is also a powerful way to help animals: by naming PETA as a beneficiary, you can be confident that PETA will continue to make a difference for countless animals after you are gone.
You can structure your Will to make PETA the beneficiary of either your entire estate, a percentage of your estate or a specific amount of money or property.
To name PETA in your Will, all you need is the following information:
PETA’s full legal name and registered address:
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation
78 Cannon Street, London, EC4N 6AF
Registered in England and Wales as charity number 1056453, company number 3135903.

A Will is one way you can ensure that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes. Failure to properly plan and express your wishes in a Will or other estate document may cause you to lose control of how your estate is to be distributed once you pass away. In addition, without a Will, your estate assets will be distributed in accordance with the law, regardless of your intentions. Through a properly tailored Will, you have the opportunity to ensure that your compassion continues to make a difference for animals long after you are gone. And because PETA is a charity, your legacy will not be subject to inheritance tax, which means that 100 per cent of your gift will go directly to helping animals.
PETA would be honoured to carry forward your legacy of compassion. If you’d like to make a gift to animals through your will or if you would like further information, please fill out this brief request form. You may also e-mail us or call us on +44 (0) 20 7837 6327, extension 265.
