Before you get started

Why this is important

Making a wish for animals is a powerful way to inspire people to think creatively about solutions. This practice fosters empathy and responsibility, teaching the importance of living in harmony with all animals and instilling a positive mindset that shows we can all make a difference.

Writing your wish


What should I wish?

Your ideas can come from the work of the RSPCA, other organisations, or from your own belief.

Before writing your wish, think about whether it should focus on 'animals', 'people' or the 'planet'.

At times, before we can make animals’ lives better, we have to inspire people or make a healthier world.


Keep your wish positive

Phrase your wishes with a positive spin.

Rather than saying ‘we want people to stop being cruel towards animals’, try to reframe it as 'we want people to be compassionate towards animals'.


What impact will your wish create?

What impact will you make for animals, people, or the planet if your wish comes true?

Here are some examples: 


  • My wish coming true means dogs can live happily in a loving home. 

  • If my wish came true, all dogs could lead a healthy life.
