Weʼre raising £500 to Helping strays in Madeira Island
- Funchal, Portugal
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Between cats and dogs, Madeira Island is currently suffering from an over population leading to thousands of strays roaming the streets. It's a hard life living as a stray. Some are lucky enough to have people who care for them, providing food and some comfort others are not so lucky and have to fend for themselves.
As a local volunteer not only do I care for a number of strays, I also am part of a group of special women who dedicate their time to capturing strays to spay and neuter them so as to stop uncontrolled reproduction among street cats and dogs. Although the operation is free, a lot of these animals are sick and require veterinary attention.
We do not receive any kind of help for this, and most of us work full time. So please, help us continue to care for so many animal in need.
