    Honour your loved one with a gift in memory and you can help hundreds of dogs and cats in need.

    Giving a gift in memory is a wonderful way to honour and remember a loved one or a dear pet.

    When we lose someone close to us - whether friend, family member, or beloved pet - the memories we have of them mean everything and we can find great comfort in remembering them and celebrating their life and passions. Supporting their favourite cause, or an organisation that mean a lot to them, can be a positive and meaningful way to commemorate them and pay tribute to their life. If you would like to remember the life of a loved one or beloved pet and at the same time make an impact on the lives of the dogs and cats at Mayhew, here are a few ways for you to consider...

    Dedicating a plaque or bench in memory of your loved one

    The garden at Mayhew is the perfect setting in which to leave a lasting memory of your loved one. We have space for several benches, which can include dedicated plaques in memory of someone special, as well as a brand new 'Memory Wall' coming very soon.
    The new Memory Wall, over the years, will hopefully become a touching tribute to the memories of our loved ones, whether they walked on two legs or four.
    Each plaque on the wall can include a personalised inscription, including name, dates and a small dedication, so that you can honour your special someone.
    If you would like to enquire about the Memory Wall or dedicating a bench, please contact the Fundraising Team using the details in the box below.

    There are many more ways in which you can make Gift in memory

    If you need more inspiration, here are a few more ideas…

    • You could create a Just Giving page online where all of your friends and family can donate and leave a personal message in honour of your loved one. You can set up your page here
    • You can ask friends and family to donate directly to Mayhew or even sponsor one of our animal cabins in memory of your loved one or pet.
    • You could consider leaving a gift in your Will and create a lasting legacy in memory of your loved one.

    However you choose to recognise your loved one, each donation made to Mayhew will mean we are able to provide continued shelter, warmth and love to all the dogs and cats that come into our care. Isn’t it wonderful to know that a gift in your loved one’s memory will be helping to change animals’ lives?
