Well, That’s Another Charity Off My Donation List…

Mr Guest, 54, a graphic designer, said: ‘They have put me through hell. I’ve had to relive my loss and face financial hardship to defend the wishes of someone I loved. I almost lost the will to live.

‘It was only the realisation there would be nobody to care for Tracey’s dogs and the fact that she was relying upon me to do so which kept me going.

‘Thinking they may end up alone in an animal shelter, or separated, would have broken her heart. It’s ironic that three animal charities are pushing this case when all I want to do is fulfil Tracey’s heartfelt desire that the dogs stay together in a familiar place.

‘They are trying to say the second will is invalid because the paper with the signature on it wasn’t stapled to the other part, but it was in the same sealed envelope and was only opened by her solicitor.’

Actually, make that another four of the bastards!

…lawyers for charities Dogs Trust, World Animal Protection, Friends Of The Animals and Heart Research UK claimed her second will was invalid. Mr Guest has so far spent £10,000 in legal fees fighting the charities.

The only surprise is that the RSPCA isn’t in there as well.

    Most charities are like leeches. I would never include any of them in my will and there are now very few that I donate to.

    In mother’s dnkey sanctuary there are about half a dozen dogs, 6 donkeys, two cats, a parrot and something no one’s really sure of but is too scared to say. She employs a vet, assistants and stablers all form her own pocket on land the family own – there’s a riding studio next door so the donkey’s occassionally get out for children with special needs.

    Every single year, like clockwork, the council desperately try to shut her little charity down. They inspect and inspect and inspect and each time they pass with flying colours but they still go for her. It wears the old bat down.

      Is it ‘the council’ or is it the RSPCA pulling the strings behind the scenes?

    Well, we know what to do.

    I would never give to any Charity but the Salvation Army. CRUK (crook) CEO has a quarter of a MILLION pounds salary. I know a friend who earns £36,000 per year trying to get more donations! Dispicable.
