    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Willow Dog Rescue are a small charity formed in June 2010, dedicated to the rescuing and rehoming of abandoned dogs in South Yorkshire.

    'Our aim is to save dogs from the council pounds in Yorkshire and give them a 2nd chance of a happy life. Each year approximately 100,000 dogs are picked up from our streets. If they are not microchipped or have any identification they are taken to the local pound. From this moment the clock starts ticking....the dog only has 7 days before it is in danger of being destroyed. It is at this point the dog must rely on he in one of the pounds that humanely care for their dogs? Will his owner find him in time? Or has he been unfortunate enough to be forgotten and forced to live his last few days unwanted and unloved? A dogs time in the pound will often be spent terrified, alone and confused. They will sometimes be kept in filthy, squalid conditions and in some pounds, the dogs won't even be fed the day before they die....why waste the food? It is at this point we try to rescue as many dogs as possible. However, it is a sad fact that we can't save them all. This is why we need help from volunteers and funding from the general public to ensure our work continues. Everyone involved with Willow Dog Rescue is a volunteer so no paid staff! This means that 100% of donations or funds raised go directly to helping the dogs...guaranteed!
