Should you wish to remember Islay Dog Rescue (Ayrshire) in your will then we would be extremely grateful.  If you do not have a solicitor, we can recommend one for you who will be able to offer advice on setting up a will in order to leave clear instructions about any gift you may wish to make to Islay Dog Rescue (Ayrshire).  Please remember that any gift, no matter how large or small, can make an enormous difference to the dogs we save.

We cannot begin to thank you all enough for your support. Not only are you restoring our faith in human nature but you are directly responsible for helping us save dogs' lives.
