Leave a gift in your will

also known as a legacy or bequest

NSW Hen Rescue have been liberating, rehabilitating and rehoming ex-battery hens and other factory farmed animals since 2010. Our vision is a world where no animal is exploited and we will do whatever we can to make that vision a reality.

One of the most powerful ways that you can help NSW Hen Rescue is to include us in your will. As someone who cares about animals and wants the world to be a kinder place, this is your chance to help us to liberate more individuals and allow us to tell their stories long after you have gone.

How will your bequest be used?

Your gift will directly influence how many hens and other animals we can afford to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome. Thanks to your gift we will be able to save more factory farmed animals in your memory and share their stories. 

Our biggest expense are vet bills. We aim to provide the individuals we rescue with all the care they need to ensure a beautiful, pain-free life. 

Chicken coops and enclosures to allow us to provide protection for more hens.

Feed, straw, all the creature comforts these girls deserve and need.

The chance to liberate and care for other animals who have been exploited by the food industries.
