UK Emergency Aid

As we face the worst cost-of-living crisis in decades, ​foodbanks and other organisations across the country are working at capacity to support people in need. Much-loved pets are also feeling the impact; according to the RSPCA, the number of pets given up due to owners not being able to afford to keep them has risen by over 25%.

The depth of the crisis

The Trussell Trust’s UK-wide network distributed 1.3 million food parcels to people facing hardship during April to September 2022 – an increase of 52% compared to the same period in 2019.

The number of pets in UK households is estimated to have risen from 9 million in 2019 to around 12 million in 2021.

The RSPCA dealt with 13,159 abandonments and 30,500 cases of neglect to the end of October 2022.

The number of people living in temporary accommodation has also risen by an alarming 74% in the last 10 years, and current statistics estimate that there are 320,000 people experiencing homelessness in the UK, with between 5-25% of them being homeless with a pet.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Wild at Heart to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Wild at Heart we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Wild at Heart to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Wild at Heart will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Wild at Heart receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
