Celebrate your pet’s life
Welcome to My Pet’s Legacy
Exclusive to Petplan Charitable Trust, My Pet’s Legacy is a new and meaningful way to celebrate the life of a pet you have lost.
Let your pet help to improve veterinary knowledge and the lives of less fortunate animals by leaving a legacy in their name with My Pet’s Legacy. As a thank you, we’ll give you the opportunity to create a unique and beautiful Memory Capsule all about your pet, to keep and share. See the examples below.
What is a Memory Capsule?
A Memory Capsule is a 2-minute film about your pet. To get started, all you need are photos and/or video of your beloved pet. Our online Capsule Creator will automatically edit your images and videos into your own unique film. We know there is so much you will want to say about your pet and there are several ways you can do this. You can add your own text and record your very own special message. Or you can choose a poem read by a celebrity. Perhaps you would rather have music? That’s fine, too – we have a selection of specially-commissioned tracks to choose from.
Celebrities have recorded poems especially for you
To add a truly professional touch, you can select a poem read by a celebrity including much-loved actors Anthony Head (left) and Jenny Seagrove, and blockbuster author Jilly Cooper.

Yes, I would like to leave a legacy in my pet’s name
We ask that you commit to donating at least £75 a year for 4 consecutive years in your pet’s name to Petplan Charitable Trust. If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim back an extra 25% of your donation via Gift Aid at no cost to you. This makes a big difference to the value of your donation so please do remember to tick the Gift Aid box on the donation form.
In return for your generosity, you can create your very special and exclusive Memory Capsule featuring images, video and meaningful text in celebration of your beloved pet.
You can download and share your capsule on social media and keep it forever on your laptop or phone – a unique keepsake to remember them by. The Memory Capsule is only available to My Pet’s Legacy donors. When sharing, please remember to use the hashtag #mypetslegacy.
